LVMH asked us to build a brand-new version of NOWNESS.com capable of easily handling 1.5M visits and 5M video views monthly.

Discovery with the client showed us that the platform needed to be hugely visually engaging on the one hand, while being easy to use for content curators and managers on the other, making it easier to keep up in the hugely fast-paced environment that is digital media. In addition, we were tasked

with making the service as secure as possible, while ensuring usability was not impacted.

Having a clear vision of the product, we architectured and recommended the most optimal tech stack, developed the product, performed data migrations and launched the platform worldwide, including in China.

The advanced, custom CMS allows the dynamic curation of content on any of the pages, using a suite of blocks which can be filled with vibrant, impression-generating materials. The CMS handles both web & mobile applications and provides a variety of advanced features, eg a newsletter builder & scheduler, a page rotation scheduler, image editing & cropping, ad management tools, site takeover and many others.

Feedback summary: 

The collaboration has been strong from the beginning, and Airnauts stands out among all their competitors. They accommodate time zone differences, are passionate about their projects, and they take time to understand the brands and markets they serve.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We sell a library of ready-to-use video game assets that developers can use to quickly develop their games. I'm the founder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Airnauts?

We were at a place where we had funding to grow. We didn't have the budget to hire our own developer, but we had enough to move the project forward to realize some of our initial goals. We wanted to upgrade our original website and use some new tools and functionality to help our site shine.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We developed several tools on our own, but they helped us create a strong API on the website to connect to. The site is built with Next.js, a React framework. Airnauts built a custom backend in WordPress and added a few custom tools that plugged in through AWS. The backend does all of our image processing and packages all our products in ways our customers need. There are also custom caching solutions to accommodate our package delivery. We built all our billing, e-commerce software, plugins, download managers, and custom formats with their help.

What is the team composition?

Over the course of about two years, we’ve worked with a team of six to seven people.

How did you come to work with Airnauts?

I signed up for a website and worked with local companies previously, but the quality of work we received from those companies was under par. I interviewed several agencies, but Airnauts took a huge interest in our project from the beginning. They came with a real proposal, and they had clearly researched our company, our needs, and our existing stack. They had experience with game development, and they had a good understanding of the technologies our clients use. There was no question that they were the agency we wanted to work with.

How much have you invested with them?

They’re always respectful of our budget.

What is the status of this engagement?

I contacted them initially in July 2017. We spent a year completely rebuilding all our backend infrastructure, and we launched in June 2018. We recently launched a new version in June 2019, and we still work together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Due to some issues on our side, our initial launch was a little rough. We’ve since recovered, and we’ve had great growth ever since. Airnauts found all the problems and fixed every issue. Our customers are very happy with the result.

How did Airnauts perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is excellent. We share a Skype channel, and they always take the time to take calls on my schedule, even though we’re in a very different time zone. They always come to me directly, and their communication is very good. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their commitment to a small, elite team is impressive. They are passionate about their projects, and the experience with them is personal and intimate. We went out on a limb to partner with them, and we've brought together a lot of unique things with them. That's against the norm for outsourcing. They did a lot of strategy work with us and really came to understand our customers and our brand before we started. Whenever they come to us with a new idea, they are clearly excited about the work. They synthesize our ideas and brainstorm on top of them. They always come to us with new suggestions, and their creative solutions are excellent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are a small shop, which means that sometimes development can be slow. That said, I don’t think there’s anything major they should improve.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I was the Product Owner in charge of this project, and I was responsible for Communications and PR in the SME Dept. at Santander Bank Polska S.A.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Airnauts?

We hired Airnauts for the creation of a platform where self-employed people could find complete information on all aspects of setting up their own business in the Polish reality

What were your goals for this project?

The goals of the project were: to present users with clear and concise information regarding the registration and operation of their own busiess entities in Poland.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose Airnauts for their professionalism, UX/UI expertise, culture of open collaboration and relatively short lead times.

Describe the project in detail.

The project aimed to provide those wishing to open their own business entities in Poland with all relevant information on doing this in Poland, including complete information regarding all legal and tax aspects of the process.

What was the team composition?

Airnauts provided all personnel necessary for the completion of the project, including a project manager, who supervised the team and acted as a liaison between Airnauts and the bank, a team of UX/UI experts, software engineers (both frontend and backend) as well as QA testers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From our perspective, the project was a success. The site achieved the goal of understandably presenting users with useful information on the creation and operation of business entities in Poland.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was excellent, and they had a very positive impact on the project, offering lots of advice; their expert knowledge was clear and invaluable. The cooperation featured timely communication and a realistic, down-to-earth approach.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team are clearly experts at what they do, and they were quick to share their expertise with us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The team was flexible, they adapted to the evolving concept of the project. The only area for improvement that we saw was that at times different people were assigned to maintaining the platform after handover, which slightly decreased the efficiency of communication. That was all, though, very happy overall.

I’m the chief creative for the hardware projects of a global arcade and video gaming company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Airnauts?

We needed to launch a new website with a modernized look to position our new product. We designed everything in-house and were seeking to hand it off for frontend web development.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Airnauts developed and implemented all web designs very rapidly and professionally. We would send them the necessary files, which they would improve before sending back the live-builds. They’ll continue to update our website throughout the year.

What is the team composition?

My primary contact is Sebastian (Co-Founder & Creative Lead, Airnauts), and I probably worked directly with a team of around four people.

They’ve been very easy to work with, as they’re very efficient and extremely motivated. We communicate primarily via Slack as our collaboration tool.

What did you find most impressive about them?

There is a unique sensibility to their working style—they have a holistic understanding of your goals and what you’re trying to achieve. They’re intuitively on the same page as you creatively, stylistically, and tonally. Their refreshing approach translates across their work, leading to a product that’s either spot on or above-and-beyond.

Just be extremely collaborative and open to what they have to offer.

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 Fountain Digital Labs, a digital product company. We develop educational and entertainment digital products for children and adults.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AIRNAUTS?

We needed help with development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our children’s app in 2015. It has won awards. In 2017, they developed two virtual reality (VR) products available in the market. They were patient enough to pass all the tech reviews by Sony PlayStation, which are really difficult and quite horrible. They completed them in 2018.

We’re about to release a third product for Sony PlayStation which is meditation in VR. It’s going through technical QA right now. They use Unity. It’s an interactive VR project. We work with documentary videos that they can interact with. Users can see different wild animals. They have a series of different experiences. For example, there’s an experience with a lioness. You wait for a lioness and you feed the lioness. There’s sound recognition. You move the narrative with answering questions. You’re being asked questions and you need to give a correct answer to move the narrative forward.

They continue to do all the maintenance. They released the first release in Europe, then the U.S., and then in Japan. They work all the time with us.

What is the team composition?

I’m in direct contact with their CTO, who is the best CTO in the world. He is literally the only CTO that is able to transform sophisticated, conceptual ideas into proper tech brief without losing the complexity. He passes it onto the developers. There’s also a project manager who coordinates everything and makes sure all the tasks are followed.

How did you come to work with AIRNAUTS?

I’ve been friends with the owner for may years, but had never asked him what he actually did. When I got into the digital business, he told me he was a digital production company.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested $400,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in late summer 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The two VR products are the best sellers in Sony’s store in non-gaming category. The head of the VR lab in Stanford believed that it’s the best nature related VR he’s ever seen. He became our advisor pro bono. From the technical point of view, it works very well.

We’ve won Webby Awards and Bafta awards. We started working with a university that took our VR into their research with children and adolescents. We proved that our VR decreases level of pain and improves memory in senior people. We work with office employees and they mediate with our VR. They use the first and second VR product in their offices. We work with their bank, which is the biggest bank in Russia.

How did AIRNAUTS perform from a project management standpoint?

I was in daily contact with the CTO and the project manager. They make sure everything is done on time. I don’t usually talk to developers. I talk to the UX designer sometimes. They use Trello Slack, Asana, and Jira. I message them through WhatsApp. They’re the only company I’ve worked with that sticks to deadlines which is almost impossible in the digital world.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re really client-oriented, but not in a superficial way. They get really involved in the project and treat it as personal and important. They’re very reliable. You can always count on them. They stick to deadlines. They’re very time and money efficient. They build your product like a proper house rather than like a tent. They’re awesome. I’m very impatient and a perfectionist and they’ve managed to work with me for all these years.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As long as they stick to what they’re doing now, I’m perfectly happy with them. They do it so well. There’s no need for change.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They won’t treat your project as just one more project. If they’re motivated, engaged, and see the mission and they why you’re doing this project, they’ll really give back to you. They’re very open and interested in young people.

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 am the CEO of an online auction house and art marketplace company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AIRNAUTS?

We were looking to develop a new page for our B2B customers, who are mostly non-profit organizations, foundations, or charities. Our team hoped to build a storefront page that would give these companies fundraising capabilities on our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AIRNAUTS was responsible for the design and UI/UX of the storefront page from scratch. Their team was involved from start to finish, taking into account our branding and design ideas before implementing them and making the site functional. They integrated a checkout page with a credit card processing system built in as well as the ability to host timed auctions. Our customers were able to log in from the back-end and customize the page to their needs.

What is the team composition?

There were four people from their team involved in the project. 

How did you come to work with AIRNAUTS?

I’ve personally known of AIRNAUTS for a few years and worked with them on multiple projects while at different companies. I had found them to be reliable and flexible in the past and decided to work with them again. 

How much have you invested with them?

We invested between $25,000-$50,000

What is the status of this engagement?

The project ran from February-May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

AIRNAUTS hit all of the targets. While we did not have any specific metrics we were tracking, it was important for us to get a product finished on time and on budget.

How did AIRNAUTS perform from a project management standpoint?

We had an assigned project manager who would relay information to the appropriate people on his team. They were great at management. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Coming from someone who oversees costs and budgets within a company, what I really liked about them was how efficient they were while being within costs that are still competitive for the industry. AIRNAUTS never relied on our suggestions, coming up with their own ideas. It became a collaborative effort to make the site better and faster.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Generally, I was very happy working with AIRNAUTS, but at times, communication became difficult due to time differences. Although this would not turn me away from working with them again.

We hired them to build our data platform, custom modular dashboards, and a user app.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create a user-friendly and reliable platform that allows real estate and service providers to input and review data. We also wanted to replicate and style those dashboards at an increasing scale.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our selection process included telephone interviews, portfolio reviews, personal referrals, and offer reviews.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Airnauts provided frontend coding and native iOS app scripting based on custom design and UX specification. They also did the backend stack, architecture, and dashboard configurators. They are responsible for data curation, analysis, and infrastructure-as-a-service management.

What was the team composition?

I’ve worked directly with Jakob (Co-founder, Airnauts). They also assigned a designer and front- and backend coders and architects to our project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The Airnauts team is friendly and flexible about the budget.  

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could still improve in terms of timeliness and UX logic. For example, they need to double-check details like spelling and back buttons.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm one of the founders of Artificial and currently oversee the product. We use the latest technologies and techniques to digitize the insurance value chain and improve customer experience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AIRNAUTS?

We were looking for a skilled team to implement the designs and animations for our new marketing website by a hard deadline of March 2019. With minimal internal engineering resources that could work on this project, it was far easier and faster to outsource the work. The additional resources would communicate on Slack with our distributed team as necessary.

What were your goals for this project?

We need to implement the designs in a pixel-perfect, engaging manner, including micro-interactions and animations when appropriate. We required that the team use our chosen tech stack to build the site—React, GatsbyJS, Contentful headless CMS, and AWS serverless hosting.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We posted on several websites looking for an experienced frontend developer to implement our designs. AIRNAUTS reached out in response, offering their help. Upon further discussion, they said they could manage the entire project for nearly the same cost. After reviewing their previous work and a detailed quote, it was clear that they knew what they were doing. We were happy to give them the project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They implemented responsive versions of our designs using React and styled-components, then integrated our blog and other dynamic sections. They used GatsbyJS for static site generation and implemented responsive product mockup animations using SVG.js. To finish, they conducted multi-browser tests and QA.

What was the team composition?

Approximately six people worked on the project, including about five engineers and one project manager. The team fluctuated in size to meet our requirements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Investors and other partners received the website well. Potential customers are visiting the site and directly contacting us more efficiently than ever. It's been a great success.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Communicating with them was fast, efficient, and regular. Our project manager did a great job handling the team and the overall project. They used multiple tools, including Slack, Asana, Github, and Figma. We had no communication barriers.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their attention to detail was exceptional; their responses were extremely fast. We received excellent value for money and will definitely work with them again.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we couldn't be happier.

I’m a technical product manager at the International Gem Society (IGS), a group that educates members about subjects related to gemology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AIRNAUTS?

We hired AIRNAUTS for a complete rewrite of a complex WordPress website. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a faster website with a more organized structure. Our ideal site would also have the ability to add and test new features over time.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The team was strongly recommended to us by another agency.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

AIRNAUTS rebuilt our site architecture from the ground up. They rewrote the theme design, eliminated unnecessary code, and improved the existing custom code.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of a project manager, a web developer, and a QA tester.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The team elevated the visual appearance of the platform with a more cohesive design. Now, the code base is well structured. It's easier to add new features and improve existing ones using the new site architecture. The speed of the platform continues to improve.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The AIRNAUTS team has been making great use of tools such as Asana and Slack for communication with internal stakeholders. Through continuous engagement with our team, they pushed the project forward in a purposeful direction.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team’s expertise has been matched by a motivation to truly understand all of our business goals. They've handled our complex project in the most thorough manner. They didn't cut a single corner when rebuilding it.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only issue we encountered was during their initial assessment of the work, which fell short of the amount of effort the project required in the end. However, this is not out of the ordinary at all. It's often difficult to do initial scoping of a project with any new relationship.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the technical lead of a design and digital agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Airnauts?

We needed a skilled and qualified partner to work on various projects. We needed someone who could assist in the transition from design to functional implementation on the front- and backend.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Airnauts mainly works on websites,  web, and native applications. Usually, our clients will need design help and a new website, so our internal team does the branding and Airnauts provides development. However, Airnauts also provides input and feedback on our designs, which we’ve found incredibly useful. They also provide tons of useful insight during the planning and architecture phase of each project. They integrate the front end build into our CMS or e-commerce solution or whatever other platform we may be using. A lot of their work is done in JavaScript, using Node and other JS frameworks and interacting with various APIs. They also work on custom PHP, Rails, WordPress, and Shopify builds.

What is the team composition?

I work with four managers and about six developers usually but have reached out to others as well.

How did you come to work with Airnauts?

My company had already hired them when I started working here.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They deliver beautiful and flawless interfaces. Everything functions smoothly and seamlessly across platforms, devices, and browsers. The responsive layouts always scale perfectly and the user experience is smooth and modern. The sites are a pleasure to interact with, and our clients recognize the good work.

How did Airnauts perform from a project management standpoint?

They thoroughly plan projects, always deliver on time, and respond quickly. All the project and technical managers are deeply involved in the projects and know what’s going on in each one. With other firms, you may wait a few days to get a solution, but Airnauts answers right away. They’re excellent at communicating. We mainly use Asana, Slack, and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They put a lot of work into our projects and focus on the details. They’re proactive and go above and beyond to deliver flawless products. The entire team is pleasant and fun to work with, which makes them an unbeatable design and development partner. It’s refreshing to work with a team that has such expertise and is so personable.

Feedback summary: 

Airnauts helped build a unique platform that is unlike anything else in the field. They were diligent in completing tasks and were willing to provide desired solutions or offer cost-saving alternatives. Their diverse capabilities make them well-suited to a variety of projects.

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 a performance-based, scalable marketing platform. We work with influencers to push performance campaigns for different brands, companies, and products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Airnauts?

They helped us build our platform. We’ve worked with them on two versions: one for Twitter and another for Instagram. They’ve been our sole developer for years.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wireframed everything out ahead of time and were building off of a template. We docked all of the functionality and provided descriptions for everything. If there was anything I hadn’t thought of or if problems or discrepancies arose, they were very diligent and found solutions.

We started working with Node.js but switched to Vue.js, plus Twitter and Instagram APIs. We pulled information from campaign assets from various influencers. We collect the number of impressions for each engagement and input them into the administrative panel. They built up the panel using those APIs and gave administrators easier ways to facilitate campaigns.

What is the team composition?

I mainly work with four or five people from their team. I have a dedicated point of contact for bigger things, but can also work directly with the team.

How did you come to work with Airnauts?

We found them on Crew before it was acquired. We interviewed several different teams but they had several features and profiles that made them stand out.

How much have you invested with them?

The entire scope of everything is between $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2015. The finished the first version of the web platform by late March 2016. They recently completed the second version, which we’re currently beta testing. We’ve had an ongoing maintenance agreement with them since we started working together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They helped us build an influencer platform that is the only one of its kind. It’s difficult to compare it to anything else out there and the user feedback is great. We’re in a very unique position.

How did Airnauts perform from a project management standpoint?

Working with them is perfect. We communicate mostly through Slack. I work on a lot of different projects and it’s easy to send them wireframes and mock-ups and anything else they need. They manage projects and ask questions whenever necessary. If I can’t get back to them right away, they’re patient and willing to wait until I can test the versions they create. Their flexibility and responsiveness are a big part of why we’ve worked together so long.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re really flexible and honest. They’ve given me options for different solutions that will save me money but are always willing to give me what I ask for. They also have an impressive portfolio and a diverse set of capabilities and experience. I have another app that I’d like them to build out and they showed me several similar platforms they built.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were times that things didn’t move as fast as I wanted them to, but that wasn’t their fault. I don’t retain them full-time and sometimes my expectations are unrealistic.
