The Masters - Strategy

They are young, talented and fearless. They started out as Rails Masters, but with our insight and strategy, they became The Masters.

From then on, the rest was simple. What color? Bees are hard-working and persistent, right? How to communicate? With the challenges only they can fulfill. Why? Because they are The Masters!

RUUKKI - Website design

We helped Ruukki arrange their website so that when it was transferred to a CMS consistent with the rest of their corporate sites, it responded better to customer expectations.

The result of using a well-proven approach is a website which leaves no doubt to those who face the challenge of replacing or assembling a new roof. Ruukki’s planned path allows its customers, whatever stage of building a roof they’re on, to request a roof expert visit, share roof expertise, or find their way to the nearest Ruukki Express shop.

CAPS Group - strategy

Special Forces in every shop? Why not? We found a way to communicate the unique expertise of the CAPS GROUP specialists with the original concept of a special task force that overcomes any challenge.

We used this idea for customer contact points, but Special Forces quickly settled into the company’s internal communication as well. Now CAPS demonstrates its expertise in a unique way – as a group of professionals in the ​​challenging business spaces industry.

Medivet - graphic design

Medivet is a company specializing in veterinary services and support for veterinary clinics throughout the country. We love animals and try to do everything we can do to help them live healthier lives.

That’s why we put all our hearts into helping Medivet with their corporate image and sales boost, and designed a consistent iconography system and a billingual presentation template made for marketing purposes. We did a great job, and Medivet got to use modern tools to help their clients grow and take better care of their pets.

General Logistic Systems - strategy

The joint strategic workshop with GLS helped us find the way to communicate the new 20.20 strategy which aims at improving work comfort and customer service. But couriers don’t live for deliveries alone! The company wanted to have their own Runners Club, and we helped communicate it to its employees.

We designed the Club identity based on the existing GLS design and came up with a series of slogans for active participants. And when GLS wanted to prepare a social media themed magazine for its employees, we created a modern layout for them (it even contained a topic-related crossword!).

Hilding - Website Design

We spend almost half of our lives on mattresses
How to choose the best one?

Hilding, a bed and mattress manufacturer, knows everything about healthy sleep. But do customers know Hilding’s products?

We designed a new website for our client to help them sell comfortable sleep solutions. Because at the end of the day, we all need to get some sleep.

Feedback summary: 

Adchitects’ work successfully contributed to a more global appeal to potential clients, resulting in increased leads and work across Europe. Their work was high-quality and valuable, especially in the long-term. The Adchitects team was always responsive, reliable, and easy to collaborate with.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a software house that builds custom software for our clients throughout Europe. We now have clients in the U.K., Ireland, and Germany.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adchitects?

We were a small company when we met Adchitects. We had five clients from Poland, where we are based, and we wanted to expand worldwide. Our company had a different name at the time, and we wanted to change our image.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Adchitects came up with our new name, our new logo, and everything that we are using right now. We started with a meeting. We talked about what we do, what we want to achieve, and what we’ve already achieved. Then they took some time to come up with the idea for our rebranding. In a later meeting, they made a few presentations about their idea, about our competitors, and about everything that was somehow connected with our brand.

What is the team dynamic?

We worked with a handful of people from their team, one of which was Kuba [Luty, Managing Adchitect & Partner, Adchitects].

How did you come to work with Adchitects?

We knew of them because we had worked with Kuba before on graphics and other projects for our clients.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $7,500 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them about two years ago. For now, our work together has ended because we have internal people handling graphics for our client projects. However, if we want to do more work on our own image, I think we would continue to work with Adchitects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can't give exact numbers, but I think the best reference here is that we were a small company and we wanted to gather clients from Europe, and their work helped us gather clients from Germany, U.K., etc.

How did Adchitects perform from a project management standpoint?

They were in contact with my colleague, not me. But, every time we messaged them, they responded within an hour or two. It was fine; we were really happy with our correspondence.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We weren’t working with other providers, so I don’t have much to compare them to, but I think the quality of their work was great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

To be honest, everything was perfect for this project; it couldn't have been done better.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

With Adchitects' involvement, SAP implementation sales have gone up and their consumer base has increased by over 150%. Their team is professional and proactive when it comes to presenting alternative approaches to promoting services online.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

ROC Poland is a branch office of ROC International, with headquarters in London, UK. Our main focus is SAP implementations within the HR departments of multinational companies. We also provide consultation. I am the sales director of the Polish division.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adchitects?

We were looking for a company that could advise us on how to approach some promotional actions online for our services. The main goal was to increase our sales pipeline and we found that the best area to do this would be electronic media. We contacted Adchitects because we are not specialized in online media; our primary goal is to sell SAP implementations.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We decided to pursue actions on Facebook, LinkedIn and Google, and have set up projects for the upcoming year.

What is the team dynamic?

I don’t know who exactly was involved on Adchitects’ side for the fulfilment of our service-level agreement. We communicated with a single contact, I believe one of the owners of the company.

How did you come to work with Adchitects?

We spoke with multiple online providers, but Adchitects had the best client approach. They were focused on our needs and profile, and SAP was nothing new for the team. They had good creative people, which was important for us. We didn’t look at pricing because we didn’t want to find the cheapest company, but one which could increase our sales actions.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Adchitects in June 2017. The first contact occurred one year before. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before, we hadn’t undertaken promoting actions online. Since Adchitects started the work, I can say boldly that our client base has increased by 150% compared to previous years. I cannot say how much money we’ve earned based on these services because it’s too early.

How did Adchitects perform from a project management standpoint?

One person from our marketing department has been in touch with Adchitects daily. We’ve had no problems contacting them online or by phone. They provide ongoing management to improve their services. If we identify approaches that aren’t performing well enough, Adchitects will propose alternatives. They are very proactive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve enjoyed Adchitects’ services so far. The real effect of their services on our financial scores will be seen half a year from now. The impact on our sales pipeline has been good. I am sure that Adchitects can understand the internet in a way I cannot.

Feedback summary: 

The new website attracted valuable customers and conveyed a fresh, edgy image for the brand. Adchitects impressed with their thorough documentation process, openminded approach, and creative designs. Their small size helped them deliver quick turnarounds and seamless collaboration.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

CAPS Group is a group of companies with a presence in Poland, the U.K., Asia Pacific and the U.S. We work with customers from the retail, hospitality, interior and workshop industries, providing fixtures and fittings for retail spaces, hotels, restaurants, bars, offices, and workshops. I am the group marketing manager responsible for marketing strategy, implementation, campaigns, image, and brand, and the overall marketing and branding within the group.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adchitects?

I joined the company over a year ago. The website was basic, so I did a quick fix to add more content pages, but without any philosophy behind it. We then started to identify ourselves and build a brand foundation, and I asked Adchitects to support us with some ideas about our brand identity and image.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Adchitects came up with a “special forces” philosophy and key visuals which can be seen on the main page of our website. The visuals present us as experts who are tough and able to respond to customer challenges. We liked their idea so much that we asked them to come up with visuals for a whole range of materials. They also worked on advertisements, but the website was the key project.

They only had three and a half months to incorporate a new visual within the website pages and had to redesign each section and the navigation. Adchitects redesigned the website using the same text, but with different pictures and layouts, taking user experience into account. They used tools for choosing between different solutions. They also had to redesign our website in five language versions.

What is the team dynamic?

Our first contact was with Ela [Head of Creative, Adchitects]. We started talking about general branding, image and communication. Once we agreed on the “special forces” theme, she prepared a presentation about how to incorporate it into different marketing materials and channels.

Once we moved to the website project, we worked with Rafał [Head of Digital, Adchitects]. I know that he had a programmer and other members on the team, but he was the main contact, which was very useful. Everything we discussed was with him and only him, so there was no misinformation. He was competent, friendly, understanding and proactive.

How did you come to work with Adchitects?

I had worked with Ela before while we were both with different companies. She later left that company and began working with Adchitects. I knew I needed a creative resource so I decided to give her a call.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost was between $10,000 and $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Adchitects in November 2016. The project was completed at the end of February. The go-live date was the first of March 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The goal of the project was to make the website look like what we wanted it to look, incorporating the new brand approach, and make it visually more attractive. This was absolutely achieved. Both customers and our team have liked it. We’ve also received compliments from suppliers in the field.

Adchitects is a small but dynamic company, which I appreciated—with bigger companies, we sometimes had to wait for long periods and go through procedures, whereas here, they can do something quickly. They managed to finish the work according to the schedule we agreed on.

They offered us a competitive price, given the five language versions we had to create. I’m very happy and can recommend Adchitects to any company looking to have a more modern and user-friendly website.

How did Adchitects perform from a project management standpoint?

We made a detailed project plan and had weekly and daily reports from them on what had been done and what needed to be done on our side and theirs. The information was clear, and Adchitects kept to the schedule at all times. The process was smooth, given the time pressure.

We’re not experts in programming, so, if we didn’t understand an item, Adchitects would ask us what we wanted to achieve. They were trying to find solutions that would make our requirements possible and were proactive, open to our ideas, and positive every step of the way. It was a nice, fruitful collaboration.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re creative, and they listened to our briefs carefully and came up with good ideas. If someone is looking for a small but dynamic supplier, that’s Adchitects. They spend time on the project, think it over, and come up with good ideas. I would definitely recommend them for projects like ours. The implementation was also smooth. I know that Adchitects used some subcontractors for it, which was fine, as long as it was done properly, and financially more convenient for both sides.

If our customers grow and need help, we can change and grow with them in that direction. I felt that same responsiveness from the first meeting with Adchitects.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not within the project we worked on. I was impressed that they met the schedule. I was worried that the five language versions would not be there and actually suggested making only three to start with and then add the remaining two later. Adchitects offered to do all of them, which was great. I’m very happy with the outcome, and, if I ever have a similar project, I will do it with Adchitects.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The quality that Adchitects produces, along with the speed that they deliver their work, is what distinguishes them from other design firms. They put effort into developing personal relationships with their clients that makes them trustworthy and respected partners.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Proof and Sons is a consulting and marketing communications agency working for the spirits industry predominantly. We founded our agency in 2013. Some of our main clients are brands of the Campari portfolio, Jägermeister, for example. We also work in the US. We are a small company but we have a very high profile in creating marketing strategies and product launch strategies for our spirits brands. I’m the general manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adchitects?

We don’t have graphic designers or product designers on our team. We work with a lot of external agencies or freelancers for that service. We have a very large network of different people that have different skillsets. Adchitects is one our latest partnerships when it comes to graphic design predominantly.

They are one of our preferred partners in a portfolio of six different agencies. We have people that are strong in brand development like BDI development. We have other people that are very strong in 3D animation. We have a lot of permanent partners. Adchitects takes probably 60% of the contracts we have.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We are in contact with them every day. We talk to them about what we need and they invoice us afterwards because we have fixed deals with them. We have a fixed budget relationship which is easy to handle.

Since we work with Adchitects as our permanent graphic design partner, we don't have to brief them as much as we would have to with other people. Other agencies don't know how we like designs, what the syle of our agency is, and what our expectations are of the quality. With Adchitects, we train each other, making it much faster and more relaxed to work on projects together.

We talk to them on the phone and on larger projects, we write briefings and discuss them. What’s nice about Adchitects is every time we give feedback, they write notes about that and have us approve them. It’s a simple and fast way to always keep track of feedback and changes.

We’ve only used them for our clients. We are working on a project right now where they are a 90% partner for CI development of a brand.

We also have a very big project right now for a product design. They are a very strong partner and we work with them on 5-6 accounts permanently.

What is the team dynamic?

We need different skill sets for different projects. All the people working at Adchitects have been involved in our projects. I work with the general manager, Jakub [Partner, Adchitects], most of the time. He takes time to talk to me and we have a good relationship. He knows what I want and translates my wishes to the team. Most of our team members work directly with their team members. We don’t have one point of contact. It depends on the project we’re working on.

How did you come to work with Adchitects?

One of the owners of Adchitects is an uncle of my business partner. When they founded Adchitects three years ago, they asked us if we could work together. We gave them some small projects in the beginning and we were always happy with the work they did for us. Our partnership grew and now they are our biggest partner when it comes to design issues. It started as a family relationship and a professional relationship grew from that.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent 50,000-60,000 Euros over the course of our relationship. Poland has a very low level of wages and cost of life compared to the US. That amount would be twice or three times as much in the US. Poland is a cheap country when it comes to things like this.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2016, and our work is ongoing and growing.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve been very happy with their work 100% of the time. We’ve worked with graphic designers before and we're not always happy on the first day they send us things. But in the end, it’s always been a fast process. What I’m really happy about is the quality of Adchitects work and the work speed they have. It's difficult to find graphic designers that deliver quality in a very short time. This is something really valuable for us.

How did Adchitects perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very good. We’ve also trained our relationship. When we started, everything took a little longer. Now as we know each other and the way we work, it’s really easy and fast. We don’t write a lot of briefings anymore. We use Slack or talk on the phone about what we need which is handy for us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What we appreciate the most about Adchitects is the trust we have in the relationship. It's really important for us to have trustworthy partners when it comes to timing and quality of the graphic results. They take time to understand and investigate the meaning of the work they do for us. They will sometimes question our briefings and make better offers.

The price is also something that sets them apart. They are 150 kilometers from our office, but they cost half of what graphic designers in Berlin do. We can offer more graphic designs for the same price to our clients.

I like their personalities. They have a young and dedicated team. This is something I don’t like about other graphic designers we’ve worked with in the past because they don’t really care and aren’t curious anymore. They don’t put a lot of heart in the project anymore, but Adchitects puts a lot of heart in their projects. They have a great taste in design.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not from the perspective that we’re working with them right now. Sometimes we would like them to do things that are different than what they normally do. For example, one time we asked them to do a 3D rendering in video. Adchitects doesn't do moving pictures, and it would be great to have them work on other projects, but I can respect if they don’t want to go into other disciplines. Sometimes we try to stretch their portfolio or they try to stretch it for us because we have a bigger contract with a client. Graphic design is also a very broad field between illustration and desktop publishing.
