This keeps the whole process nice and clean, and stops our development team from having to interfere with the design files. We have copywriters that will help you write about it; they will talk to you and interview you and help pull the ideas out of your head and they are going to write about it. Then, you are going to share those ideas, and you are going to go back and forth, but the idea is to start early, so that doesn’t hold up.
