Post review in Editorial serves as an additional review step within your Editorial workflows. While QC steps allow you to ensure your assets meet technical specifications and requirements, the Post Review step focuses more on the Creative and Stylistic aspects of your assets and allows the team to gain a more holistic overview of the deliverables and project as a whole to ensure all assets align with the intended Creative Direction.
Post Review is a great place to allow for individual, team and stakeholder feedback and collaboration and offers a space for the team to hone in on the Creative Execution. Let’s take a look at how it works!
