What is a Revision

When I create an estimate for you, you’ll usually see some sort of reference to a number of revisions that are included with your project. I believe iteration is important to the design/development process, and although not every design or development requires revision, often it can produce a tighter, more unique design in the end, but is a design revision exactly?

In order to provide you with the most accurate estimate possible, I do have to draw up revision parameters associated with the project cost. The number of revisions included with your project will be outlined right on the estimate for your project, and you can always add more revisions on an hourly cost basis.

When it comes to revising your piece, you might be wondering what exactly constitutes a revision. After all, it is a pretty open-ended term. A revision constitues a change or variation to an initially presented—or in-progress—design concept, and is typically a change of less than 1/4 of the design. A revision is simply meant to be a slight modification or course correction to progress toward the final design. A new design concept is not considered a revision. This means that a new design concept would be an addition to the project, and would need to be estimated separately, in addition to the current project estimate.
