Abstract/Artist Statement

The proofing application is designed to ease the process of communication between a client, marketing agency and the print shop. All parties involved lose money every year for small mistakes that could have been avoided by having a system that allows everyone to check what is getting printed. This application will provide a simple step-by-step process where a client will request a print job from the agency. The agency will proceed by doing design work and sending a proof to the client. Clients will be able to review the proof and make corrections as necessary. Once the proof is approved by the client, designers from the agency will make the final approval to provide the printer with brand guidelines. The agency will have the ability to have multiple printing companies tied to their application to accommodate changes in working relationships. In total, there will be three types of user accounts. A new client will be assigned a client account when the relationship with the respective agency starts. An agency worker account will be created to allow multiple designers to approve projects to print. An administrator account will be assigned to the agency manager to create new worker or client accounts. The administrator will also have the ability to create other administrators and view flow of printing jobs in a report section. Printers do not have accounts because they will be notified via email for incoming print jobs.
