The Review
Feedback summary: 

Pb+j demonstrated a good design process presenting options and taking feedback from the client. They captured everything the client wanted and made the website look polished and high-class. The client is 100% satisfied with the outcome.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Anna Grace Photography provides services for weddings and family events. I am the owner of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with pb+j?

My website was outdated, and I also needed a new business logo which would speak to my higher-end brand.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

pb+j developed a Squarespace website for me, which was the platform that I wanted. pb+j also produced some copy for my site. I was assigned a creative director and a designer/developer who handled most of the work. I also worked with a project lead from pb+j.

How did you come to work with pb+j?

I found pb+j through the referral list on the Squarespace website. I looked at budget ranges, as well as the work listed for each company. It was important for me that I work with a team. I have a background in graphic design, so it's a topic I care about. pb+j's website was very well made. After getting in touch with them, pb+j got back to me right away.

How much have you invested with pb+j?

The total cost of pb+j's services was $6,500, including a new website and logo.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work is completed. I plan to contact pb+j in the future for any updates, but this won't happen within the next couple of years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

One of the main requirements that I had for the new site was to receive inquiries from brides who were okay with my price range. I charge around $5,000 per wedding, and I was constantly getting inquiries from people wanting $1,500 photographers. I knew that this was because of my site. Almost all of my current inquiries are compatible with my price range, which is a huge benefit.

Everyone who saw it was excited about my new site, which showed the level of polish it had. pb+j did a great job of capturing everything that I wanted to capture and making it look more high-class.

How did pb+j perform from a project management standpoint?

I worked in a design studio in the past, so I am biased in terms of how a project is handled. pb+j's designer did an amazing job, and I was in contact with him often, but I felt that I should have been in touch more with the project lead. I had to end up asking my designer a bunch of questions which should have been answered for me from the start. I don't know if this was because pb+j's team had a lot on their plate, but whenever we had calls about the progress of the work, I was only given 30 minutes to talk about it. Sometimes, ideas require more time, so pb+j could work on this. Overall, I'm 100% happy with the outcome of their work.

What did you find most impressive about pb+j?

I filled out a lengthy questionnaire about my brand and talked through it with pb+j at the beginning. From there, they came up with a couple of concepts. The main one was pretty much exactly what we ended up using. pb+j created a kind of mood-board, with different pictures, colors, and images which could reflect my brand. This helped me think of things that I wouldn't have considered otherwise. I really liked the design process of presenting options to me and taking my feedback.

I liked how pb+j presented everything to me in a live website format. It showed me what the finished product would be.

Are there any areas pb+j could improve?

The communication issue I mentioned was the only drawback of working with pb+j. Having more time in order to talk through some designs would have been good.

    A reason for picking pb+j was that their past work had great variety. Being able to hone into a brand and not making everything look the same is an indicator of a good designer and web agency. I would recommend pb+j.
