What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
All my wishes were followed and it ended up where I wanted it to be. It works well for my portfolio and for what I produce. It is basically a wall that is responsive and visitors can click through the images. It’s very practical and there are no distractions, so I am happy with it.
How did Evrone perform from a project management standpoint?
On a scale of one to 10, I would give them a solid eight. Those two missing points are because I do think they got carried away at one point because they were very excited about the project.
I was very clear on my instructions from the beginning, but they came back with something that was a little crazy. I don’t feel they listened at first, but they did listen after that.
I used a Slack channel. I did not enjoy it in particular but it seemed to be practical for them. I felt it was a weird tool but maybe it is more common in other work spheres, whereas in my work sphere, people just communicate via email or WhatsApp.
I do admit, that for this specific project it was practical because all the media can be collected there.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I had 3–4 experiences of having someone make a website for me. I was never fully happy with any of them but that was not on those people; it was mostly because I didn’t communicate clearly because I just did not know.
I think they are good, and I definitely think they are better providers of that service, but also, I think the better providers of that service will want a significantly higher price. Evrone listens, and they know what they’re doing. It was good enough for the price that they suggested.
Are there any areas they could improve?
They could be more sophisticated in artistic terms. It isn’t very refined. I don’t know how to explain it really well but when you want a product like this and you are an artist and want to present yourself with a website, the website needs to be extremely representative of the artist, but in very simple terms.
What they initially presented to me wasn't what I wanted, even though they thought they were expressing me. When they toned it down, it was minimal, but it didn’t reflect me.
Someone who is more sophisticated in artistic terms would find the exact tone and the exact color behind the images and scale. That was something they definitely could've improved on. I'm not sure if one can learn that or if they need more artistic people.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Definitely know what you want and provide specific examples of other websites that you like because then they can refer to that. For everything else, they will take it from there.
