Feedback summary: 

Colouring Department's brochure designs received positive external and internal feedback. Working swiftly and independently, the team completed the task well within the deadline. They meshed well with the internal team and communicated excellently throughout the project. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a marketing executive responsible for all digital and traditional marketing strategies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Colouring Department?

We needed a new modern general brochure created for the hotel. After seeing previous designs from the colouring department, we knew Charlotte would create a brochure that was modern yet timeless.

What were your goals for this project?

To showcase the hotel, all of it's amenities and services. We needed something modern whilst keeping it's identity of a traditional family hotel with lots of history in the local area. We wanted creative but not take away from it's purpose.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We needed three quotes from different designers for management. The colouring department was cost effective and excellent value for money. We spent over two weeks researching many competitors and their services and selected three from what we felt were the best for creativity.

Describe the project in detail.

We had the content already made up, we just required the design elements. Once our management approved our content, we sent the project to the colouring department with some ideas and other brochures we felt suited the hotels persona.

After a few days, Charlotte came back with a fantastic design that showed she listened to us and took on everything we said. After a few small tweaks here and there our design was ready in less than 2 weeks!

What was the team composition?

I worked alongside Charlotte for this project. From our side we needed approval from the sales and marketing manager and our general manager however, all communication came through me. It was great to have one point of contact that fully understood the project and was on hand from start to finish.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our brochure was ready in record time! After the design we had sent it to the printers and had them within 6 weeks of initial contact. Our brochures were designed in A5 to ensure they could fit into envelopes with our vouchers, this was done to upsell customers who received vouchers. Everyone was delighted with the outcome!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

communication and time management was excellent. Although this project was not by any means needed in a hurry, we had our brochure in hand way quicker than we anticipated.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Creativity is definitely their strong point. I have worked with many graphic designers and have always had to really spell out everything i wanted. This was not the case with Charlotte, I just gave her ideas and some background info on the hotel and our goals for the brochure and she did the rest!

Are there any areas for improvement?

This project flowed excellently from initial contact to finish product and even after service. There were no areas for improvement with regards to our project.

We needed to get online in a very short period of time while making a strong impact on the market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Best value for money. Finest quality and availability. Smooth onboarding proceedings.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We worked with Colouring Department in presence since also our company has a base in Gran Canaria. We had very specific needs for the project that were planned over a personal meeting.

Once the initial brief was created Charlotte and her team devised a strategy for the project implementation. We had various brainstorming sessions but in general Charlotte and her team handled the project delivery independently.

What was the team composition?

Our interactions were mainly with Charlotte, however, the team composed of a web designer, a developer, a SEO expert and a marketing specialist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our company website was launched in a short space of time, it looks professional and matches the quality of our business.

It was very easy. We made our requests, they were taken and understood and further improved on. We were also guided through the process which allowed us to trust Colouring Department at every stage.

They proactively extracted our requirements and effectively transformed them into an excellent creative strategy, which has proven to return an immediate improvement of our image and an increase in our revenues. Furthermore, Charlotte's advice greatly impacted our marketing strategy overall.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As Colouring Department service quality is very high, they also expect very timely payments to their invoices. I have asked for some patience, but at the end I had to pay within the contractual terms, with no delays. Fair enough but hardcore!
