The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

TheoremReach is an audience monetization platform that provides market research and data insight services to games, mobile apps, and website owners. I'm responsible for operations, marketing, and finance at the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Fireart Studio?

We hired Fireart to help us define and design our branding, design and develop our website, and design and develop our UI and UX for our client and user-facing products.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to have an ongoing designer and UI/UX support for our projects that would help us grow our business and communicate our offering clearer.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected this vendor based on a combination of expertise, portfolio, responsiveness, and pricepoint. We continue to renew the contract with Fireart as they prove their worthiness with all of our projects.

Describe the project in detail.

Fireart provides ongoing design and UI/UX services to us; thus far they've helped us to create our logo, branding, style guide, design and develop our website using a custom WordPress template, design and develop our client facing dashboard, and work on new and as-yet unreleased product designs.

What was the team composition?

Fireart provides us with an account manager to handle scope requests and a designer to execute our vision as part of the SOW. For additional services around development, the account manager brings in developers when necessary to handle one-offs at an additional scope.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our website and our company branding have received numerous compliments from clients and users. Our designer did an amazing job creating a company mascot for us that embodies the positioning and brand of what we are trying to achieve in-market.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Though there is a 7-hour timezone difference, the team is very responsive and handles projects at a fast and professional pace. We've enjoyed and continue to enjoy the experience working with Fireart. We use Slack to communicate all requirements, approvals, and feedback and at times Fireart will employ Trello and Invision to communicate more complex project details.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The consistency of the product and continued communication have remained excellent throughout the engagement period.

Are there any areas for improvement?

While we sought out and employ Fireart for their design services, our one-off development projects with them have at times resulted in follow-up work required. This is not an area of deficiency for them but more a suggestion to ensure the initial scope of work is correctly detailed for one-off projects to avoid confusion.

Feedback summary: 

Their ability to turn the article topics, which are often not easy to visually bring to life, into meaningful and creative illustrations is incredible. Fireart Studio takes direction well and will make changes accordingly without compromising quality.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the art director at PracticeLink, where I design, produce, and oversee the distribution of our quarterly publication, PracticeLink Magazine. Our magazine includes content to help physicians navigate the job-search process, including topics such as relocation, navigating contracts, interviews, and compensation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Fireart Studio?

We hired them to do custom cover illustrations for us every quarter, based on the themes in our cover article.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main objective was to illustrate some of the fairly abstract topics in our cover articles in a way that is engaging, on-brand, and attractive to potential readers, while clearly communicating that we are speaking to physicians.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We initially chose Fireart Studio based on the quality of work in their portfolio. We’ve continued to work with them because they understand us, deliver quality every time, and are fast and easy to work with.

Describe the project in detail.

We submit drafts of the cover articles to Fireart Studio, along with ideas for the illustrations. They send us several sketches, which the editor and I discuss. Then we pick a favorite and Fireart Studio sends back a print-ready illustration. Sometimes, I’ll make a few minor tweaks to things like colors and such.

What was the team composition?

Our internal team consists of myself as the art director and an editor. Our CEO reviews the magazine as well before it is distributed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The topics in our magazine are not easy to illustrate since they deal with abstract or specialized subjects. For example, the most recent cover article Firaert Studio had to illustrate was how physicians trying to find a job should consider their personal interests to determine which potential practice fit them best. It’s difficult to convey this visually, let alone in a way that matches our style and speaks clearly to potential readers. However, Fireart Studio does a great job every time.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their team is extraordinarily easy to work with. They’re also agreeable, proactive, flexible, gracious, and creative. I could not ask for a better experience.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Occasionally, during the art direction process, I have trouble articulating my creative vision up front and it takes ongoing communication before the illustration looks the way I want it to. When this happens, I have the opportunity to see the illustration change over time as the Fireart Studio team responds to my edits.

I’m often impressed at how deftly they make changes, listening to my vision and doing what I ask for. They also implement my requests with creativity and thoughtfulness, so there’s no compromise in the quality of the work from their initial designs. To me, this demonstrates not just artistic skill but skill at working with people.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There's nothing they need to improve.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I’m the CTO of a music platform for artists and fans.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fireart Studio? 

We initially reached out to Fireart Studio to help us with some of our design and graphic elements. Since then, they’ve continued to support us with design work for our website and mobile apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Fireart Studio primarily creates high-fidelity graphics for our website and mobile apps. We provide them with written instructions or rough wireframes, which they then use to come up with different design concepts. From there, we go back and forth to fine-tune their ideas, and they create the final pieces in Sketch.

What is the team composition?  

At any given point, we work with 1–2 dedicated full-time designers as well as a project manager.

How did you come to work with Fireart Studio? 

We looked at a few creative studios and really liked Fireart Studio’s portfolio on their website. After starting with a small project to get comfortable working with them, we added additional responsibilities. 

What is the status of this engagement? 

Their work started in August 2018 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

We haven’t fully launched our product externally yet, but, so far, we’ve received a lot of positive feedback internally. Our engineering, business, product management, and marketing teams have all complimented their design work.

How did Fireart Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication has been excellent. Typically, we’ll either work with their project manager to coordinate the projects or give feedback directly to their designers, depending on the situation. We use Slack and Zeplin to collaborate on tasks.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Compared to other off-shore options, their communication is excellent, and I appreciate the amount of effort that they put into their work.

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, I can’t think of anything. Everything has been fine for what we need. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

When considering a design partner, start with smaller projects to see how they go before adding on more tasks. That’s what we did, and it worked out smoothly for us.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO of Nomorewires. We are a technology company focusing on wireless power transfer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with FireArt Studio?

We had been working off the radar for a while. We needed a high-end web page to bring us out of the woods, link to our social media accounts, and start advertising our mission.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The website was meant to get our name out while we’re still in the early stages. The design and development task that we set for them was quite complicated. It isn’t easy to make the viewer understand what we do and what we’re all about. It was probably hard for them to come up with something that everyone could understand. We wanted to utilize the “less is more” principle. It’s especially hard to include all the important facts and information while keeping it short.

They helped us set up our social media accounts. There were a lot of details involved, such as the background photos, videos, and corporate identity. They made everything on the social media and the website look the same.

We used them for all our design work. They are currently designing a series of infographics for social media. They’re also designing our white papers and ad banners for a social media campaign.

What is the team composition?

We were initially in contact with the CEO through Upwork. We went back and forth while I described what I needed and he made his recommendations. When we finally started the project, he assigned us a project manager, who took care of us from that point on. When there were larger issues, I contacted the CEO, but we were mostly in touch with the project manager.

How did you come to work with FireArt Studio?

I stumbled upon them on Upwork. We needed a simple 2D animation to describe our technology. After talking with them and looking at their portfolio, we decided to hire them for the whole online presence, from the webpage to social media content.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent over €10,000 so far ($11,602 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from January to March 2018. We had a lot of back and forth and weren’t in a hurry. We wanted to tweak or change a lot of things, but they were fast.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

It looks good and works great. We're about to launch our social media accounts. The traffic has been quite low, but we'll hopefully have a lot in the coming months. We attended a conference in Helsinki to do a live demo, and our competitors complimented us. Overall, feedback has been positive.

How did FireArt Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They used a software to track their hours and billed us weekly. The overall experience was very pleasant. I felt like they were at my service at all times. When I needed something, they were immediately available.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They made me feel like I was in good hands and were there for me 24/7.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are a bit too soft. They have a great team and know what they're doing. But sometimes they let the client, who may not be as informed, take the initiative. We made some rookie mistakes and requests at the beginning. They went with it, but could have suggested other things to avoid those mistakes.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Figure out what you want, and they will handle it. They are very friendly, fast, and professional.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO and lead engineer at a career development company. We provide resources and job placements for new healthcare professionals in the eye care and allied health industries. Our team built an intelligent tool that parses healthcare resumes and provides industry-specific feedback for these individuals. With one click, they can now get tips on how to improve their resumes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FireArt Studio?

We hired FireArt for the frontend UI/UX design and development of our web app.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to provide a useful tool that would strengthen our reputation as the number one career resource for new healthcare professionals. Many candidates, especially fresh graduates, are unsure of best practices when it comes to creating their resumes.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We originally came across FireArt's portfolio on Dribbble. We were very impressed with the quality of their work and hired them for a series of marketing pages. Since we had worked with them before and were happy with the results, we selected them again for this project.

Describe the project in detail.

After gathering the initial requirements, they sent the first round of wireframes for feedback and revisions. Their team completed the design based on the approved wireframes, then began the actual coding and development. They also did custom illustrations for the design.

What was the team composition?

We worked primarily with our project manager, who acted as a liaison between our team and their designers and developers. We also corresponded directly with one of the designers on one of our initial Skype calls.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our team was very satisfied with their output. We also received very positive feedback during our early rounds of user testing. While we have not yet launched our product, we expect that it will meet our business goals and appeal to our user base.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We used email, Skype, and Google Docs to manage the project. Communication took place primarily through email, but we also had Skype calls when we needed to go over some design concepts and open questions. While there were some unavoidable delays due to the time difference, our communication was satisfactory. They were quick to respond when we requested additional assets, such as the full source code repository and access to the build scripts they used to generate the final JavaScript bundles.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We really appreciated their raw talent. They came up with an attractive design with minimal direction and inspiration from our team. They were also quite helpful, pointing out some usability issues that we were able to fix before our users encountered them.

We were also impressed with the quick turnaround time of the project. They even accommodated our tight deadline by sending us the final project assets prior to the final wire payment clearing into their account. We were grateful for their trust and flexibility in this regard.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could provide a bit more structure when gathering initial requirements. While FireArt did give us a questionnaire to fill out, I'm not sure how useful it was. However, they still did a great job on this project.

Quickly understanding complex assignments, FireArt efficiently allocates a skilled design team to deliver high-quality products. They’re willing to accommodate time zone differences by working late hours. Their professional approach enables them to execute projects to customer satisfaction.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a digital design firm. We do a variety of UI/UX work for websites and mobile apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with FireArt Studio?

We had more clients than we could handle, so we needed to outsource a few projects. Finding someone within our price point that could do great work was important to us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We hired them to do a variety of work on four or five different projects. This includes UI/UX work for mobile apps, illustrations for a website, concept work for an animation, and website design. Their overall design style is fun, playful, sleek, and utilizes bright colors.

When we get a project that fits their style but we’re too busy complete it, we’ll bring in FireArt to supplement our resources and utilize their specific skill set. Other times, we’ll create a design in-house and have FireArt develop a different version so that we can present clients with multiple options. Once they accept a project, they assign designers best suited for the job. They’ll update me throughout the process and send sketches or concepts for revision. I send back my suggestions and they complete the project.

What is the team composition?

They have a team of people who specialize in different things, so it depends on the scope of the individual project. Due to the variety of work we’ve requested, I’ve interacted with four or five different people in the organization. They usually assign a project manager that communicates with me directly. I’ve also worked closely with the designers when necessary.

How did you come to work with FireArt Studio?

I found them on Dribbble. Compared to other agencies I’ve found on there, FireArt’s strength is their reliability and responsiveness. They’re very timely and always eager to jump into projects and get rolling on stuff right away.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent roughly $10,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They're familiar with the industry and different styles so they can interpret nuances within design assignments. They deliver every project I send them within expectations. My clients always love the work they do.

How did FireArt Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything they did was great and communication was excellent. They set up a Slack channel so we could talk to the project manager and the designers themselves, which was extremely helpful. In addition to Slack, we’d communicate via email and Skype. Jumping of Skype call with the project manager and speaking face-to-face is useful because emails can be easily mistranslated.

Outsourcing work to a different time zone is always a challenge. However, I was able to hold most meetings during regular work hours because they did everything they could to accommodate time zone changes. It’s a different process than working with someone locally, but definitely worth the trade-off.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They approach each project with the professionalism and efficiency of a large studio. I always get the sense that while they’re a multifaceted team, they know how to work together and execute a project, so everyone is happy with the result. They offer a high-end client experience.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing from my experience could really be improved.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work in mobile marketing at Toggl, a SaaS [software-as-a-service] company that offers time-tracking applications for desktop, web, and mobile. Our headquarters are in Tallinn, Estonia, but most of our team members work remotely, all over the world. Our products include Toggl, Teamweek, Hundred5, and Superday. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FireArt Studio?

While doing a major overhaul of our Toggl mobile time-tracking app, we decided to try a different strategy using a landing page that represents features and offers a value proposition to users. Our vision required high-quality design and animation and a clean UX. Because our designers were working on different projects at the time, we decided to hire a design agency to take on this project and deliver a quality design within a specific timeframe, allowing our marketing campaigns to go ahead as planned.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a unique landing page that distinguished our brand from other apps and solutions. We wanted to be able to display features on a phone mockup in a way that would stand out and drive more traffic to the page, thereby encouraging more people to download and try the app.

Our deadline for the design part of this project was rigid, as the in-house developers were already busy with other projects at our company. We needed our outside design team to react quickly, understand our feedback, and redesign based on our objectives.

Also, once we hired FireArt, they pointed out that the page needed to be designed in a way that would allow simple updates in the future. This mostly involved updating content and revising small parts of the page design while maintaining the same flow and overall look. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our team thoroughly researched vendors on Behance and Dribbble. After selecting five agencies that met our criteria, we started negotiations. We’d worked with FireArt before on a smaller project in which they designed several pages for our out-of-office remote work guide. Even though we really liked their work on that project, we wanted to give each agency a fair chance since our five options had great portfolios. After 10 days of negotiations, we narrowed our selection to three agencies before proceeding with FireArt after an extensive interview. They offered the best mix of availability and price, along with a detailed and informative proposal.

Their developers also offered to assist with the project, in case our development team wasn’t available to finish in time. This backup option combined with our positive experience collaborating with them in the past made FireArt the best fit for our important, deadline-driven project.

Describe the project in detail.

After we finalized our agreement, FireArt immediately started designing the wireframes and initial sketches based on our initial email. The next day, we received the first draft, which showed us that the whole project was moving in the right direction. As we continued the work, we maintained day-to-day communication via Slack. Every day, FireArt sent new designs and updates based on our brief, feedback, and their own ideas.

After two weeks, the design part of the landing page was done, and they started working on the animations, which were finished a week after we approved the design. During both the design and the animation process, FireArt was open to making changes and improvising certain aspects of the project when our team didn’t have ideas for promoting and showcasing certain features of the app. This assistance allowed us to finish the whole project before our official deadline and even gave us extra time to tackle bonus tasks.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager at FireArt who acted as our main point of contact and coordinator. The team included a UX designer, a character designer, and an animator. Each of these people had contributed to projects listed on FireArt’s Dribbble page, which we’d used as a reference of what we wanted to see in our project. Having the same people in charge of our project was fantastic.

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

Because we’ve had to delay the site’s launch due to the upcoming launch of our new app, we still can't share the link. So, we don’t have specific results of actual site traffic from the new landing page itself. However, we did use FireArt’s animations to advertise the new app through Facebook, and users are really reacting positively to these elements, resulting in a fairly low price per click.

We’ve also used FireArt’s designs and animations for two email campaigns and plan to launch more to re-engage some of our mobile users. This gave us incredible results, including a 60% open rate for both campaigns and an amazing 20% click-through rate. Additionally, we’ve received a lot of positive feedback from users who’ve contacted our customer support. We expect to promote the page made by FireArt heavily during the next year, which will boost our site traffic and app downloads.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

All four team members communicated constantly and provided punctual updates and comments. We collaborated over Slack and received weekly reports that showcased FireArt’s progress and the tasks remaining. We never had a problem communicating with FireArt. Because of our relaxed interactions, we could easily explain any changes we wanted and provide guidelines if needed. All in all, great communication paved the way for a great workflow, which resulted in a prompt delivery.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was amazed by how quickly they created the early sketches and pushed from the first draft to final deliverables in just two weeks. I can’t emphasize enough how important our deadline was and how much FireArt’s ideas helped us communicate certain features of our new app.

Since we don’t have many in-house designers, we do hire vendors from time to time. However, this collaboration with FireArt was truly an amazing experience. We’d like to hire them for future campaigns, especially because they’re expanding into areas like coding and development.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I honestly can't think of any issues. Their development team could be more involved in our future projects. FireArt is an amazing one-stop shop for web design and development.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

FireArt Studio has a talented team that is skilled in design and illustration. Their work perfectly captured the desired look and feel and was very well received by the client. Their communication was also wonderful despite time zone differences.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a branding consultant/creative director and I work directly with C-suite executives, providing consulting on how they should strategize their branding and marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FireArt Studio?

They helped create the visual identity of Curvature, a technology brand. At the time, Curvature was in the midst of a merger with another company called SMS.

What were your goals for this project?

The challenge was to redesign the Curvature brand so that it incorporated visual elements from the SMS brand. The purpose of this was for both companies to feel an equal part of the merger.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had worked with FireArt Studio before; we found them through our network. They are very talented designers.

Describe the project in detail.

Our process was fairly simple —we kicked off by briefing them on the project and they delivered a wide range of ideas for the first round. Subsequent to that, we did four rounds of back and forth with the client until we landed on a final brand identity. FireArt Studio did a great job of not only delivering core ideas but also showing how the ideas would be applied to marketing materials.

What was the team composition?

We had a project manager support us, plus a team of designers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After the brand identity was completed, they helped design the look and feel of the Curvature website. The client was incredibly happy with all of the work that was submitted.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was excellent; we communicated daily via email and Skype, as well as calls or video conferences when necessary. Bottom line, they are a pleasure to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re excellent designers and illustrators—they really get it. There's not a lot of great design talent in our industry, so FireArt Studio is a rare find.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only challenge we had was the time zone differences, but in all honesty, that mostly played to our benefit since we'd have completed work show up in our box at the beginning of the day. It all worked out great.
