OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire hipinspire?

We hired hipinspire to build our website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a user-friendly and simple website to showcase the services our business offers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A company I had worked with in the past referred me to hipinspire.

Describe the project in detail.

We met over Skype, and I described the gist of what we were looking for. I followed up with some sketches and hipinspire got to work. They were very responsive and clearly understood the concepts I conveyed. 

What was the team composition?

I only communicated with Marko (Web Designer, UI Designer, and WordPress Dev, hipinspire) about the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

hipinspire achieved the exact look and feel we were going for with the site. We’ve gotten great feedback on the new website. Everyone we’ve spoken with thinks it is very user-friendly, which was the goal.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

hipinspire was easy to work with. I’m so glad I found them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The website has been well-received, and the admin panel gets positive feedback from key stakeholders. hipinspire keeps the project moving (and on budget) through providing critical status updates throughout the engagement. Responsiveness and ability to follow directions makes him a valuable partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm one of the co-founders of QuikNode. We provide infrastructure (i.e., Ethereum Nodes) for blockchain developers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with hipinspire?

We needed a website designed and developed as this was a brand new project we were building from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided a couple of sketches and ideas of what we wanted in the design. hipinspire built the website using HTML and CSS as we wanted it to be simple and streamlined. Marko (owner, hipinspire), who is both the designer and coder, has done several iterations of the site. Once the home page was complete, we asked him to create an FAQ page. He provided UX/UI work for an administrator’s panel and status page.

He also worked on a side project for a branch of QuikNode. We had an idea for the design and gave him a mock-up. He delivered a live product in two weeks.

What is the team composition?

As far as I know, it’s only Marko.

How did you come to work with hipinspire?

Marko had initially reached out to us through another company, and we decided to use him on this project.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $3,000–$5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2017 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It only took a week or two from the time we hired Marko for him to finish the initial product and have live website up. We still use the same website, with a couple of custom tweaks. Our business has around 200 customers right now, and each one visits the site and uses the admin panel. It's simple and they get all the information they need.

How did hipinspire perform from a project management standpoint?

His communication is good. We asked him to join our Slack channel, which is great for being able to communicate about the project. Marko is able to understand our use case because of his IT background. He’s excellent at tailoring the design to our audience.

What did you find most impressive about them?

He's very good at following instructions. We give him an outline and a mock-up, and he will create several versions for us to consider. We iterate two or three times before we end up with exactly what we wanted. If something doesn't work — it needs to be darker or it needs to bring our message — he’s able to fix it right away. When we give feedback, he will deliver something that we’re happy with, usually within one try.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There was one thing that we later corrected. When he originally did revisions for our website, he would send the updates to us in a ZIP file. Our preferred method was to use GitHub. It took some back and forth, but he did agree to use commits in GitHub and adjust to our workflow process.

Any advice for potential customers?

The more design direction and guidelines you can give Marko, the quicker he can be at delivering your site. Providing a mark-up, even if it's just a sketch and colors, will give him a better sense of the type of website you want. That's how we were able to get a live website in less than two weeks.

Our primary objective was to create a clean, modern site that would match our pre-branded design.

Customers praise hipinspires' UX/UI as visually pleasing and consistently provide positive feedback. Their team maintains a thorough understanding of design systems, expertly maneuvering through complex design processes. Their attentive customer service continues to impress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a software company that specializes in competition-management software platforms. We help with marketing, design, and e-mail for competition operations. I am the client services manager. I manage operations for clients and help with the project management of our contractors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with hipinspire?

hipinspire helps us with a multitude of projects. We initially needed them to design a 404 page for us. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Originally, hipinspire helped design a 404 page for us, which served as a test trial for our company. We wanted a specific page for our clients to see rather than a typical error message and were pleased with what they came up with.

After this project, we brought them on to help design some of the public-facing pages we offer to clients on our platform. When hipinspire designs these pages, we usually provide them with designs from our clients--essentially what we currently have and what we want to see. The designs usually depend on how much latitude the client gives us and how flexible they are.

Marko (Designer, hipinspire) does a good job of interpreting what we want and listens closely to our feedback to make specific tweaks. I'm a visual person and will usually send him .jpegs of the design choices we're looking for and my comments. 

Marko has also helped us with internal projects for our company. For example, he's helped with the design of our platform so that it looks better for the clients who are using it. 

What is the team composition?

We primarily work with Marko Bijelic (Designer, hipinspire).

How much have you invested with them?

It's hard to say how much we've spent with him over the years, however, I believe it has been within the $10,000–$15,000 range thus far.

How did you come to work with hipinspire?

Marko originally reached out to our company and got in touch with my boss. My boss wanted to give him a try so that's how we came to work together.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started around three years ago and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our clients are happy, and we receive a lot of positive feedback on their designs. Additionally, the work hipinspire is doing for my internal team is running smoothly and well received.

How did hipinspire perform from a project management standpoint?

Even though they're a foreign company and working on other projects, they're usually responsive and typically respond within a day or two. We do have minor communication issues sometimes, however, this is due mostly to my lack of technical knowledge and English not being their first language. For the most part though, we've cleared up these issues and they're great about not charging for any errors that arise from miscommunication. We use mostly email and occasional Skype calls to track milestones and handle all communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We have a fairly complicated and complex system for our designers to design on. Marko really understands our system though and gives us great recommendations on how to improve it. 

His response time is fast compared to other design firms we've worked with. Additionally, our engineering team respects him, and they have a great relationship. They really understand each other. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could be a little more assertive from time to time, especially since I get really busy. When he doesn't hear from me, it would be nice to receive a nudge from him as a reminder.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be clear about what you want.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and president of Board Studios, a boutique animation studio that helps companies supercharge their marketing and PR campaigns as well as improve their internal communication initiatives.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire hipinspire?

Our website needed a refresh to appear more custom-built, better designed, more user-friendly, and more appealing to the high-end clients we are serving and targeting.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a slick, fast, and original website. We did not want anything that resembled a template. We wanted our site to have its own identity.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Marko, our project manager, has great ideas and presented a compelling portfolio of his past work. The cost savings compared to all the other competitors we evaluated made the decision to choose Marko was an easy one.

Describe the project in detail.

I submitted an initial wireframe along with the content I wanted on the site, and then Marko shared a few different approaches. We settled on one, then iterated on the details a few times. Marko got almost everything right on the first try, which made the process very painless. Even though we did not call Marko directly, we never felt he was not communicating enough or missing anything.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with Marko, who handled our whole project from start to finish. This was very important for us because switching mid-project to another manager leaves a chance for details to get missed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The speed of our website greatly improved. I believe our GT Metrix score went from E to B. This was our primary goal, along with creating an attractive and easy-to-navigate website.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The process was streamlined and professionally handled. We relied on email to provide feedback and review their work. It all worked very smoothly. Marko was very responsive and easy to communicate with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by Marko's creativity. Using our wireframe and content, he devised a website that's visually compelling in a single attempt. We expected more headaches and a longer feedback loop but were pleased with the quick result.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We were very satisfied with speed and quality, and the price is unbeatable. So we did not have any recommendations for improvement.

What was the team composition?

The one individual we worked with directly was very timely and professional.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The results of this project were stellar. Our engagement with hipinspire had an immediate impact on our business. Our client is in love with their new site, which is one that hipinspire developed.

Feedback summary: 

Both users and internal stakeholders lauded hipinspire’s designs for their professional visuals. Over the course of the engagement, the team took a collaborative approach, working to ensure that all aspects met the desired look and feel. They communicated clearly and delivered the projects on time.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO for a big data company called Sparkflows. We provide self-service software for big data management and analytics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with hipinspire?

Before hipinspire, we’d worked with numerous vendors to develop the interface for our web-based platform. However, despite redoing it multiple times, we never felt that the visuals were cutting edge, and users often criticized the overall look and feel as being too unprofessional. As a result, we approached hipinspire to provide UX/UI and web design services for both our platform and, later, our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, they worked on the UX/UI for our product before redoing our website’s look and feel. They first showed us a few different wireframes to choose from. Once we approved the design, we gave them our CSS files, and they updated the code to develop a new UI end to end. This allowed them to make direct changes rather than having to convert from another language. Throughout the process, we collaborated with them on stylistic choices such as colors, fonts, icons, and messaging.

What is the team composition?

In the beginning, we met with 2–3 people, but for the most part, we worked with Marko (Principal, hipinspire).

How did you come to work with PX Media LLC?

We found them through our enterprise accelerator where they participated as a vendor.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $4,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work lasted from September 2017–February 2018. However, he completed both projects within a month each.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received great feedback from our users. Previously, when we showed our platform to prospective clients, people would immediately focus on the lacking UI instead of the features. But now, they praise both the platform and our website for their professional UI. Marko did an exceptional job and took our designs to another level.

How did PX Media LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

They were productive and responsive, consistently generating good ideas. We collaborated through email and Google Drive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Building on my previous comments, Marko was professional, and his focus helped us identify and execute our needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of any major improvements. I had a great experience, and I’ll always go back to them for future projects.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a clear idea of what you’re trying to do. For us, we went over multiple designs upfront before narrowing down the choices. This ensured that we would do the project correctly the first time.

I’m the CEO and founder of iCON: Influencer Convention, an event-based production company with a series of annual events focused on celebrating achievements in social media.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We needed to build our annual convention's website with a custom wordless backend system from scratch.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and founder of Illuma Studios. We’re a service-based company in the U.S. that provides glass printing as well as design and mixed media art services for the commercial art market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire hipinspire?

We needed resources to redesign our website and add a portfolio page to showcase samples of our work.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a more modern, up-to-date site.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Marko (Owner, hipinspire) reached out to me with critical feedback about my current site. He provided a detailed response on how to improve the current design, which helped me decide to move forward with him.

Describe the project in detail.

Although I can’t go into too many details, hipinspire designed our e-commerce site. The site featured an interactive tool that allowed users to upload images to design their own glass print. Users could see a quote for the print in real time as they made adjustments and purchase the work when finished.

What was the team composition?

I worked exclusively with Marko.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is currently on hold because we’re waiting on the backend developer, so we don’t have any hard metrics. However, it was a delight to work with their Marko.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We worked well with them. Marko regularly updated us on his progress in a professional and timely manner.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated that they reliably provided their deliverables at the end of every week. We never hesitated to pay him for the quality of his work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing comes to mind. I consider hipinspire “my” designer and plan to use them for any future work.
