GRAPHIC DESIGN FILE REQUEST

This document is intended for clients who intend to deliver us the graphics package to be used for either editing or live broadcasting, rather than having our team create these elements. If the ArchiteX team is designing and creating these elements, this can be ignored.


Please don’t let this document intimidate you, it’s here to help. It goes into detail on file formats and the ideal way to deliver graphics to us in the most efficient manner in the case that you are creating all of the graphical assets.


We are also here to help. Any of these elements can be created by our staff instead of yours, and we can intake almost any format or codec and convert them to what’s needed.


And of course, not all the assets are needed if you don’t want them. This is just a recommended list. In the other direction, of course, the laws of creativity state that the sky's the limit, so if you have ideas or desires outside of what’s discussed, let us know. We love those kinds of questions!
