OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached Brown Owl Creative?

We hired Brown Owl Creative to help rebrand our company and to develop our new website. Our challenge was to create a stylish and slick looking website for a conservative audience, a website that is more user focused and offers more functionality than what we currently have.

Our goal for the project was to establish ourselves as one of the leading care groups in the U.K. market and to develop a brand message that would be distributed throughout the organization.

SOLUTION

Can you talk about the scope of the project?

The deliverable for them was to come up with a new brand identity for our organization and design and develop a new company website. 

What was your process for selecting Brown Owl Creative with which to work?

They came highly recommended from a colleague who had worked with them in another company previously. 

Can you give a sense of the size of the project in dollar terms or personnel work hours?

Our budget for this particular project is around $100,000. 

When was the project completed?

The project is ongoing and should be completed in the next couple of weeks [March 2015].

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project, and are there any metrics you can share?

We are in the midst of completing the project and will be launching in the next couple of weeks; however, we are very pleased with the progress and expect great results. 

How did Brown Owl Creative perform?

They have a true understanding of what we need and provide the necessary input that we require. They are great with communication, remain very responsive, and do brilliant work. They are a pleasure to work with all around.

When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them compared to other companies with which you may have worked?

I’ve dealt with numerous digital companies and without a shadow of a doubt, Brown Owl Creative have been the most creative, reliable, and professional. I don’t think I could fault them on anything.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The finished website is professional, visually polished, and full of fresh written content. Brown Owl Creative delivered an outstanding product on a reasonable budget. The team remained open to feedback during the process, turning complex ideas into practical design solutions.

BACKGROUND

Please provide a description of your company. 

I’m the co-founder of a mobile battery manufacturer based in California. We make mobile batteries that allow people to charge cell phones, iPads, and other devices on the go. We are currently the number one seller of mobile chargers on Amazon.

What are your role and responsibilities?

I am the co-founder and VP of product and marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal in working with Brown Owl Creative?

We were looking for a designer to help us build a website. We needed someone who could do everything from design and layout to support and maintenance.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Brown Owl handled the whole project from start to finish. We were building a website from scratch, and they handled everything. They were especially capable with the design layout and copywriting aspect.

What was your process for selecting Brown Owl Creative with which to work?

We found them through online searches. After speaking with Tracy and seeing some of Brown Owl’s past work, I felt confident enough to move forward with them.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

We’ve done several projects with them; in total, we’ve spent about $20,000 working with Brown Owl. We're very satisfied with the prices they charge.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

Not that I can think of, but we’re very happy with what they’ve done.

Is there anything unique about Brown Owl Creative that really makes them stand out compared to other companies?

I can’t speak highly enough about their design work. Designers who produce the quality of work that Brown Owl does usually charge much more, so for the price, we are incredibly happy with the design. They were able to take abstract ideas and translate those ideas into a design very appropriate for the site. They listened to our feedback and were always open-minded about our ideas and suggestions.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

I usually complain about communication with vendors, but Brown Owl was excellent about keeping us up to date on what they were doing. The only suggestion I can make is that they definitely should do more marketing because they have a great product.
