Portfolio

Key clients: 

We have worked with a wide variety of brand such as, Crowdstrike, Trace3, Smart Separations, KIC Thermal, among others.

Crowdstrike Falcon Prevent

As part of the launch campaign of Crowdstrike's Falcon Prevent Free Trial, we were asked to create a set of six videos for helping Crowstrike users on the onboarding process.

Kic Ecosystem

The main aspect of this project was to illustrate the KIC Thermal Ecosystem of products where each individual product is strong but the key to out sized value is when the products work together.

Smart Separations Brand Video

Microfiltration technology, nanotechnology, biotechnology. The smart people at Smart Separations wanted to put all those technologies (including theirs) into a short, sweet and appealing video.

A top priority was to, not only to explain their innovative filtering method but also wrap it as an appealing piece of storytelling.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and art director of CreativeWay. We offer an entire range of design, marketing and development services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Hypno?

We were in the middle of a brand redesign and we wanted a cool video to explain what we do. We couldn't find the time to do it in-house between our own projects, so we decided to outsource it.

What were your goals for this project?

We intended to use the video on our website's home page as well as on our social media channels.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Fernando (Founder and Creative Director, Hypno) was in my LinkedIn contact list. I knew him from his previous work and decided to see what he was up to. Their portfolio impressed me.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We had an idea for the video that we shared with Hypno. We worked together on polishing the idea and the style and defining our goals. Finally, we collaborated on the script and storyboard. The final product was a 45-second video. They provided impressive art, the most dynamic and coolest motion graphics we've ever seen, and nice background music and a voiceover.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We worked together during the planning process. Then, in the production process, we received multiple rounds of feedback to make sure our brand was represented well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video hasn’t been released yet, so we can’t provide any outside feedback, but we are confident it will succeed beyond our expectations. The video is outstanding. We plan to work together again on any upcoming project.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We worked directly with Fernando and our communication was excellent.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The finished video was exactly as expected and even more, and so was the experience of working with Hypno.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re very satisfied.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of Marketing for T3 Sixty, a management consulting company specializing in U.S. residential real estate.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Hypno?

Each year, we host a gathering of C-level executive from large U.S. real estate brokerage companies. This time, we’d just launched a new brand and needed several videos to help explain and communicate it to the audience, as well as our clients.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to help attendees and clients understand what T3 Sixty can do for their businesses and inspire them to help craft the future of the real estate industry.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I saw Hypno's work on Instagram and reached out to their founder, Fernando. Their portfolio was so good that it actually inspired us to do the project in the first place. We reached out to other vendors who might be able to help us, but none seemed as interested or talented as Hypno was.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We’d defined our brand guidelines, audience, creative strategy and media selection, and Hypno brought these items to life by working hard to understand our business, its strengths, and its challenges. They were also very careful about the brand - it had been established via detailed brand guidelines, but had not been animated. He found ways to create beautiful work that was on target and on brand. He then repurposed the content into several different pieces of media, and in the end, delivered dozens of videos.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Hypno was willing to do what it took to produce great work. The content creation process took longer than expected, but they were flexible yet firm, making sure we kept moving things ahead to make our deadlines. We spoke several times a week, sometimes for over an hour each time, to ensure that each detail was handled accurately.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We didn't have firm, quantifiable objectives. But the work was very good and we are very pleased. It was a gargantuan task, and they handled it in a calmly and timely manner.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Workflow was extremely strong. Despite the fact that we live nine time zones apart, he made sure that lines of communication were open. We utilized cloud platforms to ensure that we spoke frequently and could share files easily.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Fernando is talented, passionate and kind. They were one of the best vendors I've ever worked with and I would hire him them in a second. I highly recommend them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They need a bit more structure in their paperwork, particularly around contractual conditions. They also need to push back a little harder to make sure that clients know that deadlines are being pushed, and that specific delays could cause problems down the road.

Describe the project in detail.
