Our Design Process

Phase 1: Analysis

We start by Listening.

Ultimately, we want to build a relationship with you and your church, so we can partner together to bring solutions tailored specifically for your congregation.

  • What are your goals?
  • What are your challenges?
  • What is your vision?
  • What are your limitations?

Phase 2: Design

We assess the needs and challenges, and then we formulate a plan. We identify potential solutions. Then we put together a long-term strategy and submit a proposal.

Whether the solution is technical training or a systems overhaul, we design our recommendations specifically to your needs with your unique  team in mind.

Phase 3: Proposal

We review the proposal with you. This is a two-way conversation, so we actively look for feedback. What questions do you have? What would you modify? What doesn't feel quite right?

Then we tweak and review again - as many times as it takes. We are committed to ensuring that you and your team feel educated and comfortable with each step of the process before moving forward to the next.

3D Photorealistic Renderings

The Secret Sauce

Most people struggle to imagine everything in a proposal, and they need help visualizing the end result. Our goal is to help you SEE BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION.

MediaMerge solves this problem using the Envision 3D previsualization approach. Envision is a full-circle approach to showing potential clients exactly what they will be getting in an AVL setup by using traditional 2D blueprints and physical measurements of a space to develop a photorealistic 3D model. Before the first day of construction is even set on a calendar you can see what your facility will look like.
