What was the scope of their involvement?
They built new landing pages, and they helped with campaigns and display ad design. They also helped us build a microsite from scratch. We had a concept, which they executed for us. They were involved in both the design and development of these sites. They designed concepts and created all the code. Then, he handed off the products to our developers.
We provided some sketches in one instance; otherwise, all the design came from them. They did all the backend enhancements and any SEO improvements that would help the pages rank better. They also developed the content for these pages.
For a time, we didn't have brand guidelines, so, early in our relationship, they had more creative freedom. After about five years of collaboration, we put more standards in place, but they had no trouble adapting to those guidelines.
What is the team composition?
We work directly with the owner and founder, but I know he has a team that works under him.
How did you come to work with 1Brand Design?
The relationship was in place when I joined the team. I believe a colleague referred them. We've maintained the relationship with them because the owner is so easy to connect with. He's always available, and the team goes out of their way to answer our calls. They're also the most affordable option we've ever had.
How much have you invested with them?
We've spent around $250,000-$500,000 in the past four years. We've worked on a lot of projects together.
What is the status of this engagement?
I started working with them in March 2015, but the relationship goes back further. Our work together is ongoing.
