What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Everything their team does goes through my team and me. Last year, we had about a million dollars in revenue. Now, we’re looking at about $2 million. Ameba Creative Studio has always been excellent; we have nothing but positive feedback. Some of our top-tier clients love the professionalism in their designs. I fell in love with their latest rebrand concepts. I had no idea what they were going to do, and I ended up being extremely impressed.
How did Ameba Creative Studio perform from a project management standpoint?
As much as I love their ability to create high-level graphic design work, their project management is also stellar. Lucía is always on top of it. The way she conceptualizes our feedback is fantastic. They keep track of all of the deliverables and every single detail.
What did you find most impressive about them?
It’s the balance between quality and cost. Their work is extremely high-quality. I used to work at a large ad agency in Boston, and their quality is spot-on. Ameba Creative Studio is able to take conceptual direction and bring it to life.
Our chief creative officer gave them input on how to explore different shapes, which they were able to conceptualize. It’s something that I’ve seen bigger design agencies flop on. Their cost is also far less expensive than firms based in the US.
Are there any areas they could improve?
My team manager commented that their team doesn’t submit their invoices on time. We have to ask them and remind them. It’s something my team has to follow-up on. It’s a growth area. But I did have to truly think about something they could work on because I’m really pleased with them.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Invest time to clearly articulate the client, the audience, the project needs, and any tone or message you’re trying to convey. Give them that information. They can take that and weave it in an elegant way within their designs. Clients need to think about what they’re trying to convey and achieve.
