Follow The White Rabbit

BRONZE VERIFIED

Groundwrk was born from the old school agency world where we worked on some of the nation’s most recognizable brands, industry-shaking startups, and some flat out cool local companies. We noticed that the traditional agency model was broken and set our sights on providing big-agency branding and digital experiences without the crazy agency fees.

Sleek Website for Aviation Management Consulting Firm

Client: WJ Advisors 

Problem: WJA is a boutique aviation management consulting firm that competes toe to toe with the big, national firms. Their website needed to match that of the large firms and display the large amount of experience they have collected. 

Solution: A sweet, fully custom WordPress website that includes the bells and whistles which elevate the website experience. This site actually blows their big

competitors' sites out of the water. 
CNS Imports Image

CNS Imports

Problem: Previous website and branding was cheap and reflected a cheap brand.

Solution: Kick-ass custom design and development along with a brand refresh

CNS Imports has been providing the American market with a variety of international wine and spirits since 1982. With aggressive growth plans ahead, they asked Groundwrk to modernize their brand without the expense of a complete

rebrand.

The new logo is not a far stretch from the original yet gives the company a fresh look that translates seamlessly to digital and print.

 

The new website is slick and modern, a major upgrade from the previous website and showcases the new brand. For CNS, this site marks a new, forward-thinking era in the company and they couldn’t be happier with the results.

The Music Range Rehearsal Space - Denver

Problem: New company. Beer budget with champagne taste.

Solution: We provide champagne at the beer budget.

Startup Background: Our client, now buddy, Rob wanted to flip the rehearsal studio rental space (mouthful) industry on its head by offering a completely digital booking and key system. Building this software would require a truckload of money though so we

scoured the internet with the notion that there were solutions already created. And would ya guess it, we were right. By subscribing to two pieces of software, Rob could offer his customers 24/7 access to any of his rehearsal rooms via a cell phone.

Now for the project…

Goal 1: Make the booking system an easy to understand process. Which is easier said than done as you must use two different pieces of software that offer a clunky UX.

Goal 2: The site needs to be as smooth as Mick Jagger.

KyndHub Image

KyndHub

Problem: Web App UX was created by developers and you could tell.

Solution: A UX that created a sense of joy while incorporating more of the brand's personality.

A little Background: KyndHub is an online community that builds community engagement through gamification. It’s like a social media network for doing good things for people!

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Mile High Youth Corps provides career pathways programs in land and energy & water conservation, construction and healthcare to youth ages 17-24 in Denver, CO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Groundwrk?

MHYC hired Groundwrk to help us with a complete redesign of our website. In addition to redesign Groundwrk was also asked to help us navigate to a new web host and donation system to embed on the site.

What were your goals for this project?

MHYC went through a branding overhaul in 2017, we were looking to the website as the final piece to help us round out our branding and marketing overhaul. The goal was to create a visually stunning website that did a much better job of describing our programs.

We wanted the website to reflect that we work with young people and provide mobilization for phones that still captured the overall look and appeal of the website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

MHYC developed a RFP and Groundwrk submitted a proposal. The submission was comprehensive and reasonable in price. Randall jumped on a call in response to additional questions we had and was great in answering them and helping us walk through what the process would look like.

Groundwrk's proposal was technical but also made it reasonable to understand and capture what we could expect during this process from start to finish.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Randall and his team met with a working group at the start of the project to understand some elements of our work and apply that info to the project. From there we were presented with a design concept a few weeks later that gave the look and feel of the site we could expect.

We were pleasantly surprised from this first design launch meeting that short of a few tweaks the team at Groundwrk did a really great job at that first iteration in capturing the feel for our brand. We were able to go back and forth with some edits and then from there the Development of the site was underway.

From this point our team at MHYC was tasked with editing content and copy (as was our request, to have full control of the content), using a system in SlickPlan it was really easy to navigate that process and relay our edits and changes which were managing in a timely fashion.

What was the team composition?

The Groundwrk team was comprised of three members with Randall as our primary contact and project manager throughout the whole project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have had a tremendous amount of positive feedback from our community immediately upon launch. Our staff and alumni are really proud to showoff our new site and have used this as a tool to talk about our work.

The previous website was less useful and so we are elated to have such a helpful tool available for our supporters. We are going to launch a new hiring season in the next few weeks and are eager to compare the web traffic to new site during this hiring event.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Randall is your main contact and he is extremely effective. The response time is quick and he was great about jumping on a call to help walk through any questions that were tough to navigate through back and forth on email.

We completed this project during COVID19 and all of the challenges of navigating work. Randall and his team kept us on track and were great about quickly converting in person meetings to virtual meetings to help ensure we were continuing to move forward.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Quick response and ability to adapt to challenges that arose during project (COVID19). The quality of the final product was outstanding.

Are there any areas for improvement?

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the COO of a personal and professional development company headquartered in Denver, CO. Our company serves thousands of people all over the world to transform their lives. I am in charge of the business operations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Groundwrk?

Our company had three different websites that were created at the inception of the company. As we've grown and updated our offering, the sites were not adept at communicating to new clients efficiently. Randall and his team designed three new websites that really took into consideration the new client perspective and how best to position the company's many offerings.

What were your goals for this project?

The main goal for this project was to create websites that were brand-aligned, clear and concise, and drove people to sign up for programs. Randall has worked with our web developers throughout the entire process and has been a tremendous support.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I have a background in digital marketing and web development and know the many challenges working with an agency can have. Randall is up front, has a process that he communicates and sticks to, and remains at the forefront of what's happening in the marketing industry, making him a no brainer to work with.

Describe the project in detail.

Randall has a process he uses for each website project. We started by filling out a questionnaire and then had an in depth kick off meeting where we discussed the goals of the site, brand standards, and features and functionality we ultimately wanted. After the meeting, we iterated on the site map and then had a design presentation on the home page. Once the home page was approved, we went through the same present/iterative process for a sub page and wireframes. Then Randall and the designer did a design asset hand off to our developer and remained engaged throughout the website build.

What was the team composition?

Randall was my main point of contact. However, I also worked with a designer and web developer throughout.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our projects are still in development.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Randall has been a dream to work with. His knowledge, attention to detail, and commitment to adding value has made each of our projects better than I could have hoped for.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Randall went above and beyond at every juncture of our project. He came prepared with great ideas and was understanding about the unique nature of our company. I really felt like he was part of our team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I'm really happy with all parts of this process.

WJ Advisors LLC is an aviation management consulting firm, assisting airport operators with business, financial, commercial, and strategic planning services. I am the Managing Partner of WJ Advisors LLC.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Groundwrk?

We need a fresh approach and new website, as our existing website was antiquated and did not effectively display the firm or its brand.

What were your goals for this project?

To effectively promote the brand of WJ Advisors LLC and to do so in a well organized, easy to use website that was visually appealing and would be relevant 5 to 10 years from now.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Randall (owner of Groundwrk) is a very genuine, hard working, and client-focused individual who is very knowledgeable about website development as well as brand development. I did not find the same individuals and/or quality of services from two or three of the other well established website development companies in the Denver area.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The project involved the development of a new website design, from navigation, to look and feel, and to brand image. Groundwrk carefully walked me through each of the steps in the development of our new website where we discussed the advantages and disadvantages of major design decisions. I felt that the advice that was being given to me was very reliable and informed by broad industry experience.

What was the team composition?

A lead website developer and technical programmer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have already seen an increase in traffic on our new website, and the new site has allowed us to create a more comprehensive look at other promotional material as part of a broad refresh of our corporate image.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management part of the process was well organized, yet flexible given our travel schedules. Most of our meetings were through on-line shared meeting spaces and was well organized and to the point.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with their singular focused on what was right for our company and I found that their advice was unbiased and was informed by years of experience.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not really. I found that under the circumstances, which primarily was having to delay content meetings due to my travel schedule, that Randall and his team did a great job of being flexible, while continuing to make progress on the website.

For what projects/services did your company hire Groundwrk?

We looked to Randall and Groundwrk to refresh two of our sites, cnsimports.com and ca.cnsimports.com. Our old site was created 7 years ago and we were looking for a fresh and current look that repreented our company better in the industry.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to have a well designed, and easy navigational site. As well, we wanted to showcase our products and also allow our Wine & Spirits catalog to be available for review and download. The site needed to be easily maintained in house by a staff member whose main function is not technical. The sites needed to work well on all the major web browesrs as well as most popular mobile devices.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had worked with Randall at his previous employment. Randall was our project lead and was always very professional and communicative. The teams work was always high quality and the service exceptional

Describe the project in detail.

We needed our websites updated. entirely new look, with all our products updated and a catalog made available on the site. Randall's team was also able to give us access to analytics and help us with some basic SEO for better search engine results. Both were pluses that we had not thought to ask for. We also added an additional project of having Groundwrk redesign our Catalog(s) using Adobe Indesign. Good design and easy for our inhouse staff member to update.

What was the team composition?

Randall was our main point, and we worked with as well as a developer and designer for the project.We worked with them through conference calls and video conferencing which was very smooth considering they are based in Colorado and us in California.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our site was just recently launched, but we've had some positive feedback from suppliers and brands looking to work with us. We are just beginning to familiarize ourselves with the Google Analytics feature and plan to make use of it in future marketing campaigns.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Workflow with us and Groundwrk was very smooth. Responses were very timely. I never felt I had to chase anyone down when I had questions or requested meetings. They were very proactive about guiding me and my team to get the project done. Extremely helpful in that way.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Service level is exceptional. So many vendors do not communicate well, and projects are often delayed. We did not have any of these problems with Groundwrk

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have no problem giving suggestions, but on experience with this project, we do not have anything to add in terms of improvement. Our expectations were very well met.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

The Music Range is a music rehearsal facility featuring seven fully backlined studios available for hourly rent 24/7.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Groundwrk?

I hired Groundwrk to design and develop our website from scratch.

What were your goals for this project?

Our facility is completely automated without personnel so I needed my website efficiently communicate who we are and how our system works while effectively capturing sales. All while stylistically projecting the vibe of our studios.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Research lead me to Randall along with a handful of his competitors. He was so gracious in taking the time I required during our initial discussions. I could tell right away he was a man of confidence, competence and honesty. I knew quickly that Groundwrk was the company that could deliver what I needed with no problems.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Groundwrk completely developed a custom website for me. This includes the graphical and functional design of the website. We had a few group meetings at various benchmarks of the project for discovery and feedback. Once the project was final and approved, Groundwrk provided website management training.

What was the team composition?

There were three team members on my project. Graphical design, program development and project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

What can I say other than the guys at Groundwrk hit my project out of the park! They took my general touchy/feely view of what I wanted my website to be and delivered flawlessly on the first try. They required no micro management from me. Groundwrk delivered far and above my expectations.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

There was one manager and one professional in charge of the two major components of my website. It doesn't get much more efficient than that. Communication was fast and crystal clear and deadlines were met with ease.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I found that communication with everyone at Groundwrk was easy. Its hard to explain what you want when your idea is composed of concepts. Randall and his team were perfect in their ability to extract information from me and translate it into actionable data without much explanation. They are simply really good at their jobs and delivering what the customer wants.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None. Seriously.
