BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Co-Founder of a new cold brew start up, where I was responsible for creating and expanding the entire brand identity for our young company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FlowState Marketing?

Since we were just starting out, we needed to develop an entire brand identity, as well as create all of the necessary branding assets. As a company, we were struggling to find our own voice, as well as figuring out how to personify it. We came from backgrounds that were not in branding/marketing, we looked to find a firm that could best help us articulate ourselves through both our messaging and our packaging.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal for the project was pretty straightforward, create a brand identity and packaging that matched that. We cannot say enough good things about FlowState and how this turned out. Not only do we feel our identity is clear and concise, I receive compliments multiple times a day regarding our packaging, which they designed.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We reached out to over 15 firms that we found while searching the web, and recommendations through friends. As we began our search, we prioritized three things: The firm's design aesthetic, their pricing, and the "gut" feeling we got when meeting with them. FlowState really hit the mark on all three. Their motto, "Design With Purpose" could not be more true, their artwork and messaging were exactly that.

We did not want extraneous and unnecessary assets, everything we received had a clear purpose and was to the point. In our initial meeting with one of the owners and their digital director, we hit it off immediately and felt that they understood exactly what we were going for. The team at FlowState is ambitious, creative, and just plain fun to work with. Finally, we felt like we were receiving incredible bang for our buck with our scope of work for the price we were quoted.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The process began with an in depth discovery session, in which myself and my co-founder met with the entire team at FlowState so that they could learn more about us. This session was incredibly helpful, as they knew exactly the questions to ask us. We were initially afraid that we would not be able to articulate our desired direction for our brand, however upon receiving our prospective brand directions, or "stylescapes" we were pleasantly surprised.

Throughout a series of revisions and further meetings, we were able to hash out all things that encompass a brand identity. The process felt incredibly collaborative (something we had requested) and we really felt as though the work was something we had a hand in creating. The team was incredibly communicative throughout the entire project, and we appreciated the transparent, honest creative process. FlowState really went above and beyond in regards to our packaging, designing the label for three totally separate SKU's, and during our legal review were sending us revisions almost immediately as needed.

What was the team composition?

It felt we had the entire company at our disposal, but we had three main contacts. The Digital Director, a Project Manager, and Digital Media Designer. Our project manager kept us apprised to the group's progress, setting up weekly meetings and calls if necessary. Creatively, the design team was just a call or email away.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our company will be taking our product live in the coming month, so it is hard to give a quantifiable result. However, our brand awareness is through the roof. We've seen a 600% increase in our social media followers since the release of our digital can designs, and as I mentioned previously, I receive multiple compliments a day regarding our packaging.

It will stand out against a shelf, and it has made pre-sales for our products much easier than anticipated. The cans look incredible, and in our first sales meetings, buyers are eager to get them on the shelves ASAP. My business partner and I could not be more excited as well, FlowState exceeded our expectations tenfold.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was incredibly effective. Everyone on our team was accessible during business hours, and even after. Expectations we made clear, and they were upheld. FlowState utilized an online scheduling tool that live-updated their progress on each task, and we could see how it was coming along relative to the timeline we'd agreed upon.

They were also incredibly open to feedback, and when we had issues articulating issues we had with certain things (again, we did not come from creative backgrounds, so would have a hard time explaining why we didn't "like" the way something looked) they knew exactly what questions to ask to get the answers they needed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

FlowState's commitment to their clients goes above and beyond. There are two things that come to mind when I speak to how impressive they are. First, we had a last second request for something (after hours on a Friday) for some marketing materials with virtually no lead time. We called FlowState's President in a panic, and he picked up on the first ring and helped us out for around thirty minutes. It was only at the end of the call that he let us know that he was literally in the middle of taking his engagement photos and stopped them to help us out.

Second, during the legal review for our labels with the FDA, we had several minute changes that needed to be made. Unfortunately, the FDA doesn't give them to you all at once, but one at a time after each correction is made. Our designer helping us with the labels at FlowState must have sent us over ten revisions within one day, never taking longer than ten minutes to fire something back. He spent the entire day helping us out so that we could push our cans through legal compliance.

Are there any areas for improvement?

FlowState is a very young company. This was part of the reason why we chose them, knowing full well that some of the things we were asking of them hadn't been done at FlowState before. It was a learning process for both of us on some things, but we would do it with them all over again.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The project and solution have had a tremendous impact on our company and has helped expand our brand across the country with a full e-commerce presence. It has driven a vast increase in D2C revenue as well as expanded our customer base exponentially.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was arranged very professionally and was extremely effective. Deadlines were met, any problems were addressed early and communicated thoroughly. We communicated via in person, email, slack, and phone. All communication was excellent and we never had any issues.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive aspect of FlowState and working with them has to the quality of the work matched with the personality and care of their team. They do not look at you just as a client but as a friend and part of their team. Ultimately, they view your long term success as their success. They value transparency and a job well done.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There was very little to improve on. The complete experience was positive from my perspective.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of Manufacturing for Proteus Snowboards. We’re a startup trying to bring disruptive technology to the snowboard industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire FlowState Marketing?

We hired FlowState Marketing to produce a well-designed website that explains and demonstrates our new technology to potential customers in a professional and engaging manner.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was a highly interactive website that makes technical information accessible to all customers no matter their knowledge level.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of the founders of FlowState Marketing and I are both alumni of the same university. During my time at school, his company’s presence grew both on and off campus. I saw the effectiveness of FlowState Marketing’s branding and marketing skills from a consumer standpoint.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We needed an interactive and cleanly-designed website comparable to the highest level of companies in our industry. We had FlowState Marketing perform a wide range of services such as branding, content generation, video production, and web development. We were blown away by the level of quality they achieved in everything they did.

What was the team composition?

FlowState Marketing provided us a web project manager and point of contact—Tom (Director of Digital Design, FlowState Marketing)—who then assigned specific tasks to other team members depending on their specialties. Dayna (Director of Communications, FlowState Marketing) provided us excellent advice on marketing and communications; Harry (Lead Web Developer, FlowState Marketing) went above and beyond in developing an interactive website, and Josh (Digital Media Designer, FlowState Marketing) filmed and edited eye-catching videos for the site.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

When we talk to potential customers, one of the first things they mention is our website. They're blown away by the aesthetics and how easy it is to understand our technology just from the content FlowState Marketing produced. On top of that, the site won a local marketing award, which demonstrates the caliber of work FlowState Marketing can provide a client company.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had one major point of contact who coordinated the work and flow of information between us and other FlowState Marketing employees. Tom was exceptionally effective and always on top of even the smallest of issues we had.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The quality of work was top-notch, but as a snowboard company, we need to reach a specific audience in the outdoor community. FlowState Marketing recognized our target audience and then fully satisfied both our needs and our customer's wants.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have no idea how FlowState Marketing could improve—they really went above and beyond. I firmly believe that the team has the capabilities of an older and larger marketing company. They even exceed what you might expect of a larger company at a much more personal level.
