My name is Tracey Thompson,
I have two children one boy one girl and both have married, and it was during the planning process for both weddings that I tried to find a luxurious compendium style wedding planner that I could purchase as a gift for each couple, I was looking for something beautiful, something encased in luxurious leather, something interactive, practical and something the newly engaged couple could use to map out their very personal journey to the altar, then once all the planning and the wedding was over with, every precious moment and memory shared along that journey and documented throughout those pages could be safely stored for them to one day share with their own family.
I could not find anything remotely like the vision I had trapped inside my head, so in 2015, I decided to go ahead and try to make it, I HAD NO IDEA WHERE TO START…
So, I began writing, once I had all the written literature done, I needed an editor as my background was working with luxurious brands, not writing, and as I wanted the pages to look luxurious, I went to different craft stores to buy assorted embellishments to adorn my pages so they would look pretty, I then needed illustrations so I connected with a well-known illustrator once the drawings were done I needed a graphic artist to combine the written literature, the drawings, the lay out and then I needed to choose the finishes for each and every page to tell the story glamorously, it was exhausting as I was dealing with many different people, companies and factory’s, I was becoming more and more frustrated, I began to feel I had bitten off far more than could manage and that my vision would NEVER come to life, and I was ready to give up.
I thought if only there was ONE COMPANY to help me pull it all together and do the lot!!! how much smoother things could run for me, one company that was able to understand the vision I had for my product and was equipped to bring all aspects of my product to life, I really had no idea how I was going pull this idea together and into a finished product?
I spent the next year going from one company to another both in Australia and overseas, meeting with different R&D developers etc, this was a costly exercise for me and I achieved absolutely nothing.
It was at this time I was introduced to Form Designs Australia, I went along to my first meeting and thought WOW!!! WHAT a breath of fresh air!!! I was given solutions not problems for the first time ever throughout my journey, working with Form Designs Australia provided my business with everything I needed in one place, the left hand was always talking to the right so to speak, all my 2D, 3D and CAD drawings, graphic designs, layouts, prototypes, photography, were all under one roof, you name it, they have the answers, Edward, Sharon and their team leave absolutely no stone unturned, they only ever give 110% to absolutely every single little thing they do.
Edward and Sharon’s product knowledge combined with their knowledge of dealing with overseas companies has been an enormous benefit to my business, nothing is ever too much trouble, without Form Designs Australia my product would not have gone into production in 2018, I never really understood the process, as I wanted everything fast, fast and faster, but they have shown me, that without the process, you only have chaos.
Professionalism is something that just comes naturally with the whole team, Form Designs Australia have provided me with more than I could ever thank them for, going forward I have several products I would like to develop and if I could pick any company in the entire world to work with, it would be FORM DESIGN’S AUSTRALIA!!!
I’m so lucky to have you guys, without you all, I would still be going around and around in circles getting nowhere.
