Fueled By Optimism

We are web design, social media, graphic design, and print experts who cultivate brands and promote businesses.

We’re experienced professionals who take pride in what we do. When hired, we’ll get to know your business from the inside out, then build custom solutions that will drive sales. We take the time to learn exactly what you want, and then deliver that and more – all at a realistic cost. 

We get to know you. Careful analysis of consumer wants and needs coupled with strategic execution is critical to the delivery of a successful product. One size does not fit all. That’s why we create programs that capture your unique point of view.

We cultivate partnerships. Olive Street Design uses a collaborative approach in everything we do. Every project is based on a detailed study of your company, your product or service and your goals. We work together to bring your vision to life.

Every project is important to us. We don’t feel our job is complete until we have left you completely satisfied. It’s that simple.

We shape the experiences and interactions your customers and clients have with your company online and in print, and it’s a responsibility that we take seriously. We know that exceptional development and design can convert browsers into buyers and consistently deliver sales, and we know what it takes to get there.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of a company that supplies, installs, and repairs commercial pedestrian doors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Olive Street Design?

We asked them to design a website that would be easy to find on the Internet.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to increase our business with an easy-to-use website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were referred to us.

Describe the project in detail.

They built and designed the website from scratch. I provided information and pictures, and Olive Street Design did the rest. They continue to manage our site.

What was the team composition?

I worked with Nat (Principal, Olive Street Design).

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our collaboration has been extremely successful and exceeded our expectations. In the past three years, we’ve worked with other companies who claimed they could do the same thing, but Olive Street’s work has generated more phone calls and leads from the website. The minute we went live, I received an email from a client who found us online, and it has not stopped since then.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Everything has gone smoothly, with no issues or problems at all. They contact me to make sure everything is still working properly and that we are generating business from the site.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They actually do what they say they will do. There are no excuses or delays, just results. I had no experience in making a website, but Nat (Principal, Olive Street Design) has been extremely patient with me and quite professional throughout the whole process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None that I can think of.
