What was the scope of their involvement?
We started off with a kickoff meeting. Jacob Tyler sat down and had an in-depth conversation with us to really understand what we do, how we do it, and what sets us apart. There were three gentlemen in the room for the kickoff, including the CEO, and they were very attentive. They asked great questions in order to understand what we were trying to accomplish as far as sharing how we stand out.
We are wrapping up the first phase of the project, which was the branding and logo. The ideas they came up with for the logos were fantastic. They were very thoughtful in the design and why they chose what they chose - the colors, the fonts, everything.
They also created a bunch of taglines that were wonderful. We were really impressed and very pleased with the outcome. Everyone across the board picked the same logo and loved it, so it was a really easy and enjoyable process.
We just signed an agreement for them to develop and design our complete website, so we can another kickoff meeting coming up. I had heard about another company that used Jacob Tyler to develop their website and the result was very impressive, so I'm excited to see what they can do for us.
There are several people on the entire team. The CEO of the company has been very hands-on. He's done a lot of the design work himself. He also has a writer that did a lot of the research for taglines. There was also another project manager that had a lot of input.
How did you come to work with Jacob Tyler?
I made the recommendation for them to bid on the project because I had heard of their work and have known of their CEO from fellow associates in our industry for years. We had several other vendors come to the table with other bids, but Jacob Tyler’s was the most comprehensive one. They’ve been doing this for a very long time, so I knew that they were very reputable and trustworthy.
How much have you invested with Jacob Tyler?
We’ve spent approximately $60,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We first began working with Jacob Tyler in March 2017, and we'll work with them throughout the rest of the year to complete the website. They're already thinking of what they want to do, and I'm looking forward to getting started. The website should be done by October, if not sooner. After that, there will be more marketing materials to create since they're completing the branding guide. I completely trust them with everything.
