BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the editor for Superfluo, a cultural magazine which promotes young artists in Uruguay.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Pesto?

I hired Pesto to design our printed edition. We realised there were no printed magazines like ours in Uruguay and thought it would be a great idea to have it printed.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to create a dynamic, fun, thought-provoking magazine which anybody would like to touch and, most particulary, see. We wanted it to be visually appealing.

As the guys from Pesto are young and vibrant, we thought they could be the right ones for our project. And we were right, they understood what we wanted from day one.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Whilst other designers were reluctant to adapt to our project, Pesto seemed capable of reshaping. From day one, they showed a willingness to try over and over, giving us lots of options and taking into account our opinions and suggestions. So it wasn't a difficult choice at all.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we commissioned them to the job, they started working immediately. Usually, we receive one or two choices. In this case, we received four choices for our identity, each one showing different targets and moods -from the colours to the fonts used.

They emphasised the process, which was great. We went through the process together, taking decisions and choosing the paths we liked the most. Whilst I expected a simple choose-this-or-that process, they involved us in it and, together, we got to a very satisfactory visual identity for our magazine.

What was the team composition?

Pesto is formed by their two designers/creators - Joaquín and Daniel. They both worked with us evenly from day one and they seemed to really complement each other.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The magazine looks way better than I expected, it looks absolutely professional. Just by catching a glimpse of it you realise there's lots of creative work behind it, and that it's not just a copy or repetition from previous projects.

It's extremely eye-catching and I can't say I would be as content as I am if I hadn't worked with Pesto. Everybody I show the cover for the first number of the magazine becomes immediately mesmerised by it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Absolutely perfect. We would set deadlines and they would have everything ready even before said deadlines. They were easily available, always extremely respectful, and willing to undertake this project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their willingness to work and improve. They would not be content with their first try, but they would try again and again until they got to what they thought was the correct result. That's what made me hire them in the first place.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I was positively surprised and they surpassed my previous expectations, so I don't think there's anything for them to improve. Hopefully, they'll gain more experience sooner rather than later and I'm sure they'll get bigger jobs.
