What was the scope of their involvement?
The most recent project was an interactive game that was HTML5 mobile-compatible. It included programming and design. It was a multiple-choice quiz game, kind of like Trivial Pursuit, so they had to build a scoring mechanism. They had to build several extra features to make it easy to use, like toolkits, a timer to do weighted scoring, some other log-out, time-out, fool-proof things. And they developed all the graphics for touch-screen from wireframes that I gave them, as well as a file of the user experience, and brand assets from the client, the brand book that you apply to the signage and everything else. So they worked with the client’s desires of staying on-brand, but otherwise they did all the designs. We did this in six weeks, start to finish. My end client was quite happy. So basically their services were development, graphics, and testing.
The other project was a web-based project where they created the page that would let me choose a certain Twitter hashtag and two or three keywords within that hashtag, and any time those are mentioned, the page updates automatically. They used HTML5 for that project as well, and maybe some other things behind the scenes that I don’t know about. But I use it as a webpage.
They actually did two projects similar to that. Another one let me import from Excel and created an animation on the fly. We gave them an established look that the client was using, and they built the graphics from there. I gave them some starting points, some rough sketches, and they filled in the rest.
How did you come to work with Angle180?
I found them through a friend, another designer, who had worked with them and thought they did a great job.
How much have you invested with Angle180?
I’d say that, in total, we’ve spent $30,000. Oh, we did another project as well. Let’s say $37,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve been talking with them for estimates since 2014. We did the first project in 2015 and we’re still working with them now. We’ve had projects in 2016 and 2017.
