We wanted a compliant website with a new design.

My team chose Noble Intent Studio based on positive feedback from referrals.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Noble Intent Studio rebuilt our site. They improved the user experience while maintaining our brand’s presence across the site.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Internal and external feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Noble Intent Studio accepts constructive input well, but also brings creative ideas of their own to the table at a reasonable value. The team’s quality deliverables set them up for an ongoing engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I'm CEO of Cheiron, a firm of consulting actuaries that assist institutional pension and health and welfare funds. We've got offices coast-to-coast and over 100 employees, 65 of whom are fully-credentialed actuaries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Noble Intent Studio? 

We’d never had our corporate branding done in a formal manner. We did our own website and branding when we started out. We decided it was time to bring in professionals that could help us establish the look and feel of a corporate brand.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Noble Intent Studio created a graphics manual and a color scheme for our administrative staff to follow. They also designed a specific logo for our annual corporate meeting in San Diego. We used the graphics manual they created to update our website. They continue to help develop various marketing collateral pieces for us, including letterhead, business cards, a report template, and PowerPoints. 

What is the team composition? 

I only work with Angela (owner & designer, Noble Intent Studio). I know others in my office have worked with other people at the studio. 

How did you come to work with Noble Intent Studio?

They were referred to us by an employee in our San Diego office.

How much have you invested with them?

I'm guessing we spent $50,000 for the initial project, maybe more.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial project took place from May 2014–June 2015, but we’ve had ongoing projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our clients tell us that the new look and feel is very refreshing. They like the color scheme and think it’s an improvement over what we had previously. Noble Intent Studio did their job well, and we're happy with what they produced.

How did Noble Intent Studio perform from a project management standpoint? 

They met all the milestones and never had a deadline issue. I found them to be very professional, which is appealing. We never had any issues, and that's uncommon when dealing with vendors. I typically communicate with Angela via email or phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Sometimes graphic designers have their own style preferences. Noble Intent Studio is very good at listening to what we want. They’re quite adaptive to our preferences as opposed to trying to sell us on their own.

Are there any areas they could improve? 

I can't think of anything. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

My only advice is to call Angela if you have an issue.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Noble Intent Studio’s work, foot traffic increased and the visual impression of the brand is stronger. They are easy to work with, and their inclusive, full-service team saves a lot of time.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-owner of a full-service real estate brokerage in San Diego.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Noble Intent Studio?

They've done a lot of work for me, including logo design, webpage development, and all my graphic design projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed a webpage for my business, and they overcame some issues we had with the site for a short-term rental project. They added functionality that could accept payments, refund deposits, and included a calendar system that showed when the property was blocked out or rented. They manage all the technologies, and I couldn’t have done any of this without their help.

I like a clean aesthetic, and everything they create is simple and legible. They think everything through before they send it to me, so I often have little or no feedback for them. They do all the legwork, and I don’t have to be very involved in their process. The first versions they send are often ready to print as is.

What is the team composition?

I work directly with a graphic designer and a webpage specialist.

How did you come to work with Noble Intent Studio?

I found them through a business association we all belong to. 

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent around $10,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2014, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did some signage and fliers for the grand opening of a new area of my business. As people showed up, they commented on how much they loved the sign. The signage they designed for the front of my business increased foot traffic.

How did Noble Intent Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They are the loveliest people to work with, and the graphic designer is very organized. I get constant updates, even if the project is complicated. They create spreadsheets and milestones for us, and we never have to worry about what phase we’re in.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They work together very well, and I’m very happy to have a full-service design and web development team. The inclusivity of both saves a lot of time since all of it gets handled by one group, from start to finish.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I give them constant feedback about their work, but none of it is negative. They’re a joy to work with.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t micromanage them; they don’t need it. They think of everything, and you’ll get the most out of them if you step back and let them work their magic.

Feedback summary: 

Quality coding, engaging content, and cost-effective development resulted in an immediately positive ROI. Effective communication and efficient workflows were also key for the successful delivery. Having foresight and diverse skill sets, the team easily grasped scope requirements and expectations.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I own a photography studio that does weddings, portraits, headshots, and event coverage.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Noble Intent Studio?

My old website was rudimentary and didn’t reflect the professional quality of my business. I hired them to build a new site with improved features and SEO performance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Noble Intent Studio created a custom WordPress site, migrating content to the new platform. Taking the lead on development, they added features and made sure our team—as technology novices—couldn’t accidentally make changes. The project included some SEO efforts, but the design and functional coding were the main priorities. The team also redesigned our logo to fit the site better.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a graphic designer and coder.

How did you come to work with Noble Intent Studio?

We had a working relationship because I had shot the owner’s wedding. After the event, I kept in touch and followed their postings. I didn’t consider other firms because Noble Intent Studio was clearly a top-performing agency.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent about $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in October 2013 and the project ended in May 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The overhaul exceeded my expectations for scope and quality; everything they did was worth the investment. The site had great multimedia content and received enthusiastic customer feedback. People were visiting just for the sport of it and enjoyed the experience. While we could review the analytics, those numbers wouldn’t truly represent the site’s impact.

How did Noble Intent Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

The partnership was easy because Noble Intent Studio had an intuitive understanding of our needs, as well as our customers’ expectations. Since I was flexible with scheduling, they didn’t have to rush development. The team delivered a quality and functional website, knowing I cared more about performance than timelines. Communication was excellent; we used traditional channels instead of dedicated project management tools.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their workflows and communication style kept the project efficient and cost-effective. I made my money back immediately because they built the site with its and our company’s future in mind. The team had great vision and skill sets—graphic design and coding—that accommodated our lacking technical expertise.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything because their customer service was perfect. Most of the time, the team caught issues before I did.

Any advice for potential customers?

Stay out of the way and let them do their thing. Micromanaging will waste the client’s time and money.
