Feedback summary: 

Blackfish successfully explained the brand through their designs. Their insight and guidance were highly useful. Their team hit all deadlines and solved problems effectively. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Platon is a platform where customers can buy useful minimalist products and simulaniously contribute to a charitable cause. At the moment we are making leather goods but we are planning to expand to other areas also. I am the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Blackfish?

Brand identity, web design

What were your goals for this project?

To build a brand identity from scratch and design a simple but effective online store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I know the founder of Blackfish and I trust his sense of beauty. I believe he’s able to see what customer needs and leads his team towards the vision.

Describe the project in detail.

Blackfish team prepared a few solid logo designs and when we selected the best one they perfected it and build a whole brand identity around it. Now we are working on an online store.

What was the team composition?

I communicated mainly with the founder but I know there were more people working on the logo designs. Now in the second part I’m in contact with a lead web designer and often review the progress with Blackfish founder.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The progress is satisfying. From a very simplistic web idea we felt the need to push it a bit further to fully explain the brand.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Without any problem. I appreciate their insight and sometimes even professional guidance.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Designers were able to deliver urgent stuff even in the late evening.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The company is quite young but they are on a good path.

Feedback summary: 

The project is still seeking funding, so there are no quantitative metrics yet. However, internal stakeholders have reacted positively to the site's simple design and praised Blackfish for their speedy turnaround. The team's wireframes and initial sketches impressed all.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am CEO of a development company named Devx.agency. I am in charge of new businesses and partnerships.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Blackfish?

We were looking for a UX/UI design company that can help our clients to design a brand and website for their startup.

I personally know Vit (CEO of Blackfish) from school when I was young so I decided to contact him. We were expecting to design all the screens and cooperate with us with development.

What were your goals for this project?

Because we were building a startup for our client, the time was most important. I would say, that the Blackfish went deep to this project very quickly. The goal was to deliver it as quick as we can and still, don't underestimate a quality

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Because I already knew Vit, I was contacting him directly. After one intial meeting, they were on the board and design some wireframes first. I took maybe around two week to delivery some first sketches.

Describe the project in detail.

The project was a startup for one of the Czech entrepreneurs. It was a website application where people could sell their real estate. The unique value of this project was, that people are doing this exclusively online. There was much to discuss with legal things, but in the end, we made it.

What was the team composition?

Initially, we had our own project manager and two developers. On the Blackfish side, I think there were two designers who did it.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Unfortunately, the project is still waiting for investment so it's not launched yet. But in the meantime... we have really positive feedback for this website application and the simplicity of the design.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We connected over the phone at least a few times a week and for rest of the communication, we used Slack and Basecamp. Even that they are 400 km away from us, the remote work was fine.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was blown away by the speed they made first wireframes and sketches. They really understood the project and were helpful in planning new features or just keeping things really simple. I believe they have a great experience from the project before.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Maybe cheaper :)
