Feedback summary: 

Mint Design Agency created a simple but effective website that draws praise from visitors and has resulted in more performance bookings. The team features a hassle-free customer service approach, highlighted by its availability to make updates if necessary.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a solo musician.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Mint Design Agency?

I contracted with Mint Design Agency to develop my personal website.

What were your goals for this project?

It was my hope that the website would promote my music, resulting in more sales and performance bookings.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had several design proposals to choose from. Mint Design Agency was the most responsive and offered the timely solutions that I needed.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

I required a website that would allow me to make updates on my own, including adding performance dates. Mint Design Agency also created an electronic press kit that has been critical in securing performance gigs.

What was the team composition?

I worked primarily with Mint Design Agency’s principal. I’m unsure if anybody else was involved on their side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Overall, the website has been fairly well-received. I’ve seen an increase in performance bookings. I have yet to receive my first royalty distribution, so it is difficult to report a specific impact on music sales at this point.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The principal and I worked very well together in finding a website format that is easy for me to maintain.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have been responsive in every circumstance. Following the initial design, I have needed help with a number of updates, and Mint Design Agency has always been able to offer better solutions than I originally expected.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

No, I cannot see any areas for improvement.

Feedback summary: 

Mint Design Agency delivers high-quality website designs that take full advantage of the WordPress platform. They produce responsive websites with intuitive interfaces. Executive-level engagement facilitates a communicative and transparent experience. They conduct themselves professionally.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Hashtag Systems Inc. We’re a full stack development company that specializes in custom applications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Mint Design Agency?

Several customers of ours asked for design services in addition to development work. We wanted to have quick access to a web design firm to serve our clients better.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Mint Design Agency handles all of our web design projects. They’re especially skilled using WordPress, so we develop sites on that platform whenever possible. We transfer clients to Brandy (Founder, Mint Design Agency) if they have specific WordPress requirements and she drives the projects from there.

What is the team composition?

Brandy is our main point of contact, but I assume she has other designers on her team.

How did you come to work with Mint Design Agency?

I tried several other agencies and multiple freelancers in the past. None of which offered a satisfactory level of commitment or quality deliverables. I’m happy we reached out to Mint Design Agency.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve invested $8,000–$10,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Brandy is aware of the SEO aspect of web design and that adds to the value they provide. She makes sure all each site is responsive and works directly with clients. We appreciate not having to play the role of the middleman. If there are any questions, she’ll jump on a call with the customer to get things clarified.

How did Mint Design Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

All work is completed on time and their project management skills are excellent. Brandy has a Slack channel open for us, so we get regular updates regarding each project’s progression. They’re incredibly transparent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Brandy stays on top of the projects we assign and goes out of her way to keep us informed. There hasn’t been a situation where I’ve had to ask for an update. Also, each site is expertly crafted, responsive, and designed with SEO in mind.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any. Everything has been great so far.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Work directly with Brandy and don’t try to complicate the communication channels by adding other contacts.

Feedback summary: 

Though the site launched too recently to produce statistics, Mint Design Agency proved to be a powerful partner, instituting an effortless partnership with consistent communication. They were cognizant and respectful of personal preferences and made themselves available to affect requested changes.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a freelance writer and blogger.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Mint Design Agency?

I needed a WordPress site with a modern, clean design to which I could easily upload content. It also needed to have anti-spam protections, a portfolio page for published work, newsletter capabilities, and social media plugins.

What were your goals for this project?

I needed to design a responsive WordPress website to showcase my blog, travel photos, and published articles.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was looking for a woman-owned web design company in the Bay Area. Mint Design Agency had the best responses and the most visually interesting web design portfolio. Their aesthetic aligned with my vision as well.

Describe the project in detail.

I provided a task list of my desired goals and Mint Design created an initial mock-up. We met online to finalize the design and then went through a series of revisions to achieve the final product.

What was the team composition?

I worked directly with their web designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website is just launching, so there are no stats to share as of yet.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our cooperation was clear and easy.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated how attentive Mint Design was, accommodating my needs to ensure I was happy with the final design. They even added small touches and after the fact.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The process would have been more streamlined if I’d submitted my goals/tasks in an excel spreadsheet, as opposed to an email thread, but that’s my mistake.

We hired Mint Design to rebrand our business and make our website more modern and user-friendly.

What were your goals for this project?

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Mint Design on Thumbtack and connected on LinkedIn. We carefully vetted their work and were pleased with their portfolio and honesty.

Describe the project in detail.

Mint Design created five logo options from which we could choose. We loved one of them and didn't modify it much, although they offered to do so. Mint Design also modified our outdated website and mobile site to match our quality standards.

What was the team composition?

We primarily worked with the owner and a few of her teammates.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our form conversion rates and phone calls have increased, which we attribute mainly to our website overhaul. After sharing our new brand with existing customers, we received amazing praise. We've attracted more clients for Mint Design because of their high-quality work.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was seamless. We used Monday.com for project management. We had a tight timeline, but they did an amazing job of delivering work before the deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with their ability to turn our vision into a reality. We were open to their thoughts. If we had designed the project, its quality wouldn't have matched our goals. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything went well, down to the follow-up meeting after the project was complete.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their style and programming were impressive and quite forward-thinking, especially with our “before and after,” picture gallery.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

The finished site was completed within a quick deadline and delivered in less than a week. It is attractive, easy to use, and meets the provided requirements perfectly, receiving positive feedback from its users. The team was responsive and dedicated, ensuring that they satisfied the client fully.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of Conduit Insight, a research and development organization in healthcare.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Mint Design Agency?

I needed work on the design and launch of my company website.

What were your goals for this project?

To create a website from scratch that is simple, clean, and attractive. I wanted a look that balanced two different industries that I am in: healthcare consulting, and its more traditional appearance, and tech startup, which can be edgier.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I used Thumbtack and then had phone interviews with multiple vendors.

Describe the project in detail.

They built a homepage, services page, about page, and contact page. That involved choosing the layout, inserting content, developing the colors and design, laying out stock images, and making recommendations on how to make the site more attractive.

What was the team composition?

Brandy (Founder, Mint Design Agency) did the majority of the work, with a coordinator who handled administrative issues.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I love my website. I've received great feedback from members of my industry that it is clean, engaging, easy to navigate, and conveys my message well.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Brandy was very responsive by email and text. She was able to spend a lot of time on the phone with me in order to understand my needs, and was very patient as I changed my mind about things many times. It was very easy to work with her.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The customer service and dedication to the client. I felt that my satisfaction was the most important thing to them, and Brandy assured me that she would not leave me with a product that I was not thrilled with. They delivered the product within the timeframe I gave, which was very tight—less than one week.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything.
