What was the scope of their involvement?
They created all our branding for our launch this December (2017). We expanded on their original logo design, and developed packaging and artwork based on that. We’re now doing 3D renderings and are moving into work on our website.
They’re building everything for the site, including the platform development, a shopping cart feature, and everything but the copy. We provide the verbiage, and make sure we’re following the regulatory guidelines for the product line. They do the rest.
What is the team dynamic?
I work with Andres Escorcia [Art Director, Awaken Studio] and Luisa Guevara [Creative Director, Awaken Studio].
How did you come to work with Awaken Studio?
Another contract manufacturer recommended them. They’re a new company, and young, which is part of the reason I wanted to work with them. Their capacity to think differently blew me away.
We first met in our offices and discussed what we wanted to accomplish. They returned with a whole proposal based upon our needs, including three different logo options. I loved their concepts, so we decided to move forward with them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent somewhere around $8,000–$9,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started near October 2016, and are still working together.
