What was the scope of their involvement?
They worked on our website and our larger branding efforts. We already had a baseline of logos and other items we had already established. We really used them to showcase the brand externally. They built us up from scratch. I had some ideas for how we should present ourselves, but was open to suggestions for things like colors, the platform, and how the website would be built. They came with all of that on their own.
We collaborated about 50/50 on design and they did 100% of the development. I provided the images, but they came up with cool graphics that transition into the background on our homepage. They made the fonts and overall vision very clean. I gave my ideas to the copywriter, who wrote out content that we edited and tailored to our company.
They sold me on React because the mobile and tablet conversion is so smooth. Since those devices get used more than actual computers, we felt it was the right decision. After we decided on everything, they built a mock site for us before we went live. I’m about to contact them to get pricing on a few trade show items I know they can handle.
What is the team composition?
I met with Darren (Director, Adnorml), Lisa (Strategist, Adnorml) and their creative director. A copywriter sat in on the first few meetings to get our vision and direction. I also worked a little with their website developers.
How did you come to work with Adnorml?
We wanted somebody local in case there were any issues or emergencies. I searched for developers in the area and emailed five. Three companies wrote back within 24 hours. Our initial discussion was with Darren, who was phenomenal. They weren’t pushy, they just asked what we were looking for and provided examples of what they could do. They listened to our ideas and I had no doubts about them.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent somewhere between $20,000 and $25,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began in about January 2017. The whole project went live about June 2017. We have an ongoing contract with them for monthly maintenance.
