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.
