What was the scope of their involvement?
Metajive performed a full competitive analysis and consultation on what we wanted our logo, color scheme, and branding to look like. They then developed this into a brochure website, along with all the marketing collateral we'd need to get off the ground as a small business: PowerPoint templates, email signatures, business cards, executive photos, and social media elements. They handed over the design specs to our development team, who actually built the site.
We made the website design in Sketch, and metajive used Adobe products like Illustrator and Dreamweaver.
What is the team dynamic?
Like many design firms, metajive had a full network of fulltime employees and consultants. I interacted with a few of them, all of whom were professional and understood the goals of the project.
How did you come to work with them?
I’ve known Dave [Founder, metajive] for many years through a friend. When I started our company, Dave and I had a couple of initial meetings, and I had a good feeling about metajive as a business. They seemed to understand our needs and had done similar work in the past. For this kind of work, it was preferable to do it with someone we already had a relationship with, to ensure high quality.
How much have you invested with them?
The brand design, website development, and PowerPoint templates cost $50,000. The price was standard compared to other bids I got, but I would classify the quality as high-end.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with metajive in June 2017. We went live a week and a half ago.
