We worked closely with the team during the design process to create a couple versions before settling on our current design -- once we got the look and feel down, 1Brand Design created the framework for each page until completed. We met a few times in person as well as several phone conferences, screen share meetings.

Mainly worked with Mike as project manager / lead designer and Jay on all the website coding / back end development.

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of an IT MSP. We provide IT and telecom services including hosted phone systems, data center management, cloud migration/management, etc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 1Brand Design?

Our website needed a complete redesign including a new logo design.

What were your goals for this project?

We were looking for a new modern site that would allow prospects to have an idea of the services provided along with contact forms for lead generation. Also, it was important that the site was mobile-friendly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had worked with 1Brand in the past. Some of my customers used 1Brand for their website design and have always heard very good things from my customers.

Describe the project in detail.

1Brand designed a new logo and emblem. From there 1Brand designed and published a completely new site. The site exceeded my expectations. It is slick and mobile-friendly. 1Brand also provided site hosting along with easy to use access so that I can make content changes myself.

What was the team composition?

I worked directly with the designer. We had a kick off call. I provided my current site and some example sites. From there I was provided with several logo options. We decided on a couple of changes and settled not eh final design. Then 1Brand provided a sample front page. Once I signed off on the front page design, 1Brand filled in the rest of the site including contact forms other content. Once the final site was approved, it was published and we went live with the site about two weeks after the project started. The was a great experience.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the president of a legal recruiting company that places attorneys in law firms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 1Brand Design?

We wanted to overhaul our outdated website design and have someone manage our site going forward.

What were your goals for this project?

It was important to us to have a sleek, updated website that would balance the look of professionalism with ease of navigation and understanding the services we provide.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Mike and his team came highly recommended by a friend and after seeing a couple samples of his work we were confident he could deliver what we were looking for.

Describe the project in detail.

We gave 1 Brand an idea of what we were looking for - the general layout, the number of pages, and the aesthetic we were looking for. They took our direction very well, incorporated our company colors and themes and put together a product for which we've received tons of compliments from clients.

What was the team composition?

My business partner and I had a consulting call with Mike about what was important to us at the outset. From that point on, Mike was very communicative about the projected timeline and touched base whenever he had questions to run by me.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

There are a number of boutique recruiting firms in our in industry who have very outdated or minimal websites. Ever since the redesign, we've confidently featured links to the pages Mike and his team created and have received great feedback from clients and candidates about the site's appearance and how that made them comfortable and confident that they were working with a top notch recruiting team.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was a very painless process. Every time we had a suggestion during the redesign (and in the time since), Mike has been very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They did a great job of guiding us toward a format and layout that made the most sense for our business. Knowing nothing about website design or coding myself, I'm sure Mike could have given us limitless options that I would have had a hard time choosing between. They did a great job of listening and guiding us toward the best options.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nope.

Feedback summary: 

The internal team has deemed the new web solution to be much more professional and high-quality than the original, confident that it can successfully support incoming PPC traffic. Their ability to produce visually exciting designs and communicate effectively made for a streamlined process.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Green Business Systems, which is an ERP implementation company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 1Brand Design?

I needed a website redesign as I started investing in PPC for lead generation to my business. My initial site was one I put together myself, and it wasn’t super professional. I needed something with strong designs and attractive landing pages to appeal to leads coming in through my PPC efforts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I described the problem to Mike (Owner & Creative Director, 1Brand Design) and requested that he come up with a few wireframes for the new site. Once he sent over two wireframe options, I selected the one that would best reflect my business. Then, he took the current content on my site and built the site from his wireframe and my content.

In that effort, he also devised a new logo and rebranded the company’s social media accounts as well. My old logo was functioning somewhat as a placeholder, so he took it to the next level.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with Mike, but there was someone else working on the logo.

How did you come to work with 1Brand Design?

After searching for Chicago web designers on Google, I found them on Clutch. They had reviews that confirmed the quality of their work on the site.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent under $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from October–November 2019. The engagement lasted six weeks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We just launched the new site, and it’s night and day in terms of visual growth. The design is more professional and will be able to compete with big players in my industry. I’m confident that my PPC work will be money well spent, now that I have a professional site built into the equation. Because it’s early days, I don’t have many success stories yet, but I definitely will in a few months.    

How did 1Brand Design perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t require much back-and-forth, but Mike was very responsive. I spoke with him about once every week throughout the six-week engagement. Whenever a design decision was needed, he touched base with me. I was very happy with the level of communication. They hit all major milestones on time and within budget.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I love the new logo, and the overall site design is pixel perfect. It looks much better than it did before. The design work was very sharp. I didn’t need to ask for additional wireframes or logo designs because they provided high-quality options right off the bat. I could’ve worked with any of the options happily. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I was happy all around.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be open to Mike in his design presentations. You can count on him for expertise and input in this industry. Let them guide the process, and they’ll take care of the rest.

I am the founder and a lead designer at Adaptive Design Services, a collective of top level freelance designers working primarily in the events/experiences industries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 1Brand Design?

We hired 1Brand to design and build our company website - along with doing some search engine optimization.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a beautiful, professional website that would effectively showcase our work and help us attract new business.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected 1Brand based on Clutch reviews and from viewing the 1Brand website and being impressed with their work.

Describe the project in detail.

I had an initial consultation with the 1Brand owner and lead designer. We discussed design ideas and agreed upon a budget. I received a proposal and a bill for 1/2 the agreed upon sum. My team and I took some time to get our materials and ideas in order. Once we got everything to the designer, the process moved quickly. They delivered a first pass and we are now in the process of putting together our notes for changes. The owner, Mike Kotler has been extremely kind and professional throughout.

What was the team composition?

We have spoken only with Mike Kotler. He has been very responsive and attentive throughout the process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We are very impressed by 1Brands sense of design. We think the site looks great. Haven't put it to the test with clients or perspective clients yet though.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was very effective. If there was anything inefficient in this process, it was on our side, the client side - it took us longer to get our materials together than expected - but Mike and 1Brand were extremely patient with us throughout.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Professionalism. Quality of finished product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not that we know of yet.

What were your goals for this project?

One of the central needs for this site was an Events calendar that allowed local musicians to list their gigs. In addition we needed Fans, Musicians, and Venues to submit information and to request promotional materials.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They came as a recommendation by another station that had a good experience with them. We were working with a tight budget and also tight timelines, and 1Brand was able to make it work.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Site design was created by another company, and 1Brand developed the WordPress site to match the design and features described. This included customization of the Events submission and calendar display, and multiple forms.

What was the team composition?

This project was a collaboration made up of mostly volunteers supporting the local music industry in Pittsburgh. The council has 10-12 members on it. Our radio station was also involved with 4-5 employees working on various aspects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The ability to launch this site on time and on budget, and to the specifications of the design meant that we were able to create a real presence for the Love PGH Music Month.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a senior marketing manager at a financial services institution. We purchase deferred payment streams from structured settlements and annuities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 1Brand Design?

They've helped with a lot of different projects. We wanted to improve our conversion rates for paid search campaigns to generate more call volume and web form volume. They also did website management for us in WordPress. We use a different platform for our main site, but several of our smaller sites needed management.

SOLUTION

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.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Clicks and conversion rates for every page they designed outperformed anything we had before. Across the board, we saw an increase in web forms, calls, and leads for our business.

How did 1Brand Design perform from a project management standpoint?

They check all the boxes, and their project management is solid. We share screens through Webex, and most of our communication is though phone and email. They occasionally fly out to meet us in person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their design is solid, their attention to detail and flexibility are excellent, and they accept a lot of extra feedback from us. They're exceptionally accommodating, and they bend over backward for us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My experience with them is great, and they make my life so much easier. I work with several partners, but 1Brand is the one I never have to worry about.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a detailed creative brief. Frame the project, and be available to discuss your vision.
