What was the scope of their involvement?
They asked me a lot of questions and gave me an initial set of options for the design. I chose one, and we proceeded from there. Two months later, I received the deliverables of the branding, website design, and stationery designs for notepads, letterheads, and so on.
What is the team composition?
I worked with Harji (Founder and Executive Creative Director, Azai Studios).
How did you come to work with Azai Studios?
They were recommended to me by a friend, then we had a two-hour call with them, in which we explained what we needed to do.
I chose them because I was interested in working with someone overseas, in order to differentiate my company from competitors. They used some international designers, who produced results that are more unusual for the Russian market.
How much have you invested with them?
They first estimated the work at around $35,000, but there were additional illustrations and material that brought the cost to $40,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked with them from July–September 2018.
