BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of a digital marketing agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Big Gorilla Design?

We engaged Big Gorilla Design to design a website and logo on behalf of a third-party client—a startup tech company. 

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a modern-looking website and a fresh logo that stood out from competitive firms.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed 5–6 companies for this project, including Big Gorilla Design, which came to us via referral. We chose their team based on their innovative approach, energy, and knowledgeable team.

Describe the project in detail.

We first talked with Big Gorilla Design about the client’s goals. Their team hosted a creative session to explore ideas together. After working on the initial branding, they developed and finalized a logo. At the same time, Big Gorilla Design mapped out the site and created wireframes. Once we have our feedback, those wireframes turned into webpage designs that influenced the site’s development. We provided comments at every stage.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a few developers and a frontend designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client was so satisfied with the logo and website that they brought on Big Gorilla Design to lead a video and advertising campaign. Both projects delivered a clear ROI and received compliments from stakeholders.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project ran smoothly without issue. Big Gorilla Design was highly responsive from start to finish. They were highly personable, professional, and easy to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team demonstrated talent, creativity, and knowledge of best practices. They researched the client’s industry thoroughly, helping ensure the project’s success. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

At one point, a developer’s leave of absence caused a slight delay. However, Big Gorilla Design told us right away and assigned a temporary developer who caught up quickly. We’re overall pleased with the collaboration.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the owner of a restaurant and nightclub.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Big Gorilla Design?

I brought them on to handle web design and maintenance, graphic design, marketing, advertisement, and SEO. They’ve redesigned my website twice and been with me through various incarnations of my company.

What were your goals for this project?

On the latest web design, we wanted to rebrand ourselves with a fresh look, simplify the site, and develop direct communication with customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A business acquaintance referred them to us. I immediately liked them and we developed a good rapport. They've been a great team to work with, and we will continue to do so. Their prices are fair and reasonable.

Describe the project in detail.

We began by discussing ideas and laying out our goals. Moving quickly, we devised a list of pages and determined a flow for how they would work. Then, they delivered sketches of the site and designed it.

What was the team composition?

I worked with 5–6 people from their side. I mainly deal with their principles because of our history, but I’ve also worked with a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I've worked with Big Gorilla Design for six years, and I can't imagine working with another company. I receive constant compliments on the event posters they produce, and my profits keep growing. It’s been a big success.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They were responsive and organized and used a specific management tool.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were excited about taking my business and site in a new direction. They're also more knowledgeable, talented, and honest than other firms I’ve worked with.

Positive and creative, working with them is an all-around good experience. Their knowledge and experience allow them to suggest unique ideas without being overbearing. I don’t have to hold their hand, but they also don’t force me to go in their chosen direction.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I’ve seen. I’ve requested changes and they’ve made them. We’re very happy with our relationship.
