Horse Racing Game is very much like fantasy football game but with horses.

Horse is the main competing entity in the game. Users can create leagues and the same horse can participate in any league that allows it (with an exemption that a league allows only specified breed to participate).

Feedback summary: 

The work done by Plastik has been extremely well received. Their team took time to understand the client's business, and then worked quickly to deliver impressively cohesive and modern designs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CTO of an e-Healthcare business. We develop an ecosystem to promote healthy activities and products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Plastik?

We desire Plast for all UI/UX and design tasks. They build a complete design concept, website concept and app concept from zero.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal is to have a developer-ready prototype with all UI and UX prepared. Furthermore, the project includes a marketing landing page and a complete branding concept.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We've searched online and recognized some very nice sample projects, which fits perfectly to our needs.

Describe the project in detail.

We are working with 5 people on this project, 2 from HealthStars and 3 from Plastik. A manager from Plastik and two designers. We discuss everything in different slack channels and using skype calls. Reviews are also done via slack. The communication is very good and changes are implemented very quickly.

What was the team composition?

We have conversations with the designers as well as with the project manager to avoid a lack of information. This is working very well, because of our iterative progress.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We got a complete app and brand book design from zero to everything in two months. Our business partners are so impressed that they have sped up the onboarding process and increased the project priority.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Due to a simple communication channel (slack), we have a very effective workflow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The short time they finish their work and the modern look and feel. Furthermore, we have a very good communication workflow and everything is done as expected and better. But the most impressive part is the amazing output they have generated by only getting a few information about the project at the beginning.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

CEO/Startup Founder

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Plastik?

We hired Plastik agency to design the UI for our website.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals for this project were to create an intuitive tool for complex stock market data analytics. A lot of information has to be communicated on the analysis page, which was going to be a challenge.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I saw a few examples of their work on Dribble, and decided to give them a call.

Describe the project in detail.

The project required complex price graphs, infographics, and customizable parameters to be able to analyze market data on various timeframes. We needed to develop the UI for the entire site from the homepage to plans, subscription management, profile settings, and password recovery, to name a few.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager, with one designer working behind the scenes as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Plastik agency always delivered in a timely manner. They not only understood our vision but augmented it with their own creative touch. They did a great job with the initial pass on each page, and they were able to quickly integrate later comments and find solutions that met the requirements while allowing the site to remain intuitive, visually pleasing, and not too cluttered with information.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communicating with Plastic agency was very easy. For the initial pages, we worked with mockups, and later we used Invision to add comments to each of the pages.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They've never failed to deliver in a timely manner, and always the highest quality work. Beyond just dealing with the "look and feel", they had a good sense for the comprehensive brand of this company, and what we are offering to our customers.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would recommend Plastik agency to anyone looking for a talented, affordable team to help realize their project.

Feedback summary: 

The designs are still being implemented but met praise in beta testing. Plastik delivered high-quality designs that met specifications and deadlines. The team led a smooth workflow thanks to their timeliness, excellent communication, and high availability despite time zone differences.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the co-founder and CTO of MySwimPro, a fitness company who's product focus is on our flagship app focused on swimming, called MySwimPro. There are 9 people in our company. I oversee product and technology organization and direction.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Plastik?

Our app, MySwimPro, was designed in piecemeal by people without design backgrounds. We needed a comprehensive redesign of the app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a unified design language across the app to make it more approachable to our users, especially beginners who may not understand swimming workout structures and to make the app appearance reflect a the quality our users expect to find in our app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them on LinkedIn and reviewed their portfolio, which included fitness apps. We looked at some other places but the experience working on other fitness apps and the price won us over.

Describe the project in detail.

We needed all of our screens in our iOS, Android, and Apple Watch apps to be redesigned with a unified theme. Additionally we asked them to create about 50 "trophies" for a new "Achievements" feature we launched. I helped communicate the project requirements to Plastik and provided feedback between them and our team while the project was active. Plastik provided mockups and designs for the new screens, as well as the 50 png icons we requested for our Achievements feature.

What was the team composition?

There were three people involved, but we mostly interacted with Victoria, the co-founder and CMO, who communicated with her team our feedback.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are still in the progress of implementing the design changes, but initial feedback from beta testers has been positive.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We were 7 time zones away from each other, but communication was good, with follow-ups and questions being answered in a timely manner. We communicated in Slack and through some google hangout meetings.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were impressed with the speed of turnaround of feedback and requests. The work was done faster than anticipated, and our feedback was promptly implemented.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Once a minor requirement was missed (a greyscale version of each Achievements trophy) but overall no problems.

The redesign work is progressing well and almost complete, with the new screens receiving positive feedback from its users. They manage the project effectively using a variety of technologies, and offer excellent quality for the price point they operate at.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO and founder of SPRT APP GmbH, a sports platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Plastik?

We needed someone to redesign our application’s approach to how users connect with it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We went through our UX/UI and analyzed the entire user journey. We optimized various screens where users have problems and solved them. We generated and created some screens that were transferred to us as business holders, then created the UX completely from scratch together for Android and iOS.

We’re 90–95% complete, but are still working on some screens, as the process of creating a completely new user journey will take a few more weeks. We have to close up some animation, post messages, and make small changes to icons on various screens—we did AB testing and figured out we had to change some icons, colors, and fonts.

What is the team composition?

The team is so great that I wanted to know them personally, so I went to Ukraine to collaborate with them more intensively. After being there 6 or 7 days, I’d met the entire team including the co-founders, the UX leader, the business person, and three junior designers.  

How did you come to work with Plastik?

I did an online search and messaged various UI/UX agencies. We ran a small design competition where three or four top design agencies competed, and after analyzing the results, found that Plastik delivered the best designs.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent 3,000-6,000 euros (approximately $3,400–$6,800 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2019 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have good knowledge of modern, 21st-century design trends. We tested out the redesigned screens with our present user base and they loved them—they were what we were looking for. It was hard to find a team who could do that for the price point they offered, so we’re very happy to work with them.

How did Plastik perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is great, using Slack, Trello, and Sketch Cloud. They’re one of the best companies we’ve worked with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very responsive and have great ideas.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everything is great so far.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Deliver all the necessary briefs for the designers to do their work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of a startup called GetRenty. We’re developing a marketplace platform that combines peer-to-peer car sharing with a fully automated car rental process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Plastik?

The challenge centered on UI/UX design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After making mockups and low-fidelity designs, Plastik. We made lots of small changes. I sent them a couple of examples of designs I liked, and asked for some options on that style. They gave me a mood board with samples I had to choose from. That helped them get more into my vision. turned them into high-fidelity designs
 
Outside of the UI/UX, they provided every type of work we needed within the design area. They created an entire brand book and portfolio for our company.
 
What is the team composition? 

I worked with the three co-founders. The rest of the teammates were backend developers.

How did you come to work with Plastik?

A company I know well gave me a strong recommendation.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $5,000–$10,000. I think they’re extremely cheap and should be charging 2–3 times more.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Plastik in January 2019 and finished the project 10 days ago. Decision-making extended the timeline. They’re still working on some banners for us. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The work we accomplished together would have been impossible to achieve with other designers. Plastik was just as concentrated on securing results as we were. I’d give them a perfect score for communication.

When we took part in a startup exhibition in Dubai a couple of days ago, many people remarked on the high-level design Plastik created. At this point, It’s still too early to have quantifiable statistics. Rather than using hours as a metric, we evaluated them based on results.

Plastik is a highly professional team that always supported us. They handled stressful moments gracefully and always remained friendly and polite. 

How did Plastik perform from a project management standpoint?

Plastik’s speed of communication is very fast, and they stuck to all the deadlines we set. Once we gave them a task and set a price and list of terms, we didn’t need to track their work. Tools we used included messaging systems such as Slack for communication and InVision for design.
 
I appreciated that they were willing to work on weekends, which was very important for us. If we had a question even on a Saturday or Sunday, they responded immediately. Many larger companies told us they didn’t work after 6:00 PM.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Using a modern style, Plastik follows all the latest industry guidelines to create designs of the future. 
 
Managing design teams can be difficult because everything depends on keeping our ideas aligned with theirs. Past designers we’ve worked with delivered entirely different work than we expected. Plastik's team kept their vision in parallel with our own.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Plastik is an awesome team. I can’t think of anything they could have done better.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I’m confident that Plastik could deliver any project, and do so professionally. They gave us the best price on the market and even let us dictate the timeline.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of a personal security startup that aims to bring to society a safer environment without needing to sacrifice individual freedom.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Plastik?

We hired them to take on web design as well as UI/UX design for the mobile app.

What were your goals for this project?

We were looking to obtain an MVP version for both the website and mobile app and continue the system’s development and improvement. Our long-term goal is to provide users a set of features that will improve public awareness and make people help and look after each other so that less police force is required to maintain a safe environment for everyone. Ideally, safety will be provided by average citizen activity.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’ve worked with Plastik before on a smaller project, and they proved to be useful. I knew they were capable of handling this project so I gave it to them.

Describe the project in detail.

At the start, we had an online meeting and we went through the requirements document and user stories that I had at the moment. Based on those, Plastik created mockups of the interface for the mobile app, which took a few more meetings to review. Within a short timeframe, we had designs available for our developers.

The next stage involved designing the website, which went through the same milestones as the mobile app did. We’re still in the development stage, so we still use Plastik’s help every now and then.

What was the team composition?

Arsentii (Founder & Art Director, Plastik) was our single point of contact. As far as I’m aware, he has several designers to help him with projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re still in a pre-kickoff stage, so it’s probably too early to talk about the project's outcome. However, Plastik has helped us a lot with developing a professional image for the website and mobile app. They are reliable, flexible, and great to work with, so the journey with them has been a pleasure.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They’ve been very effective in this regard. Both Arsentii and I made the effort to be reachable to each other. He has been really cooperative and helpful in all circumstances.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their creativity, skills, can-do attitude, and willingness to go the extra mile for a client are outstanding.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There’s nothing in particular, though I don’t know of any situation where attention to details and testing is ever enough.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a co-founder of Mind Studios, a mobile app development company. I’m the product owner of several internal projects.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Plastik?

I needed UX/UI development for some of our mobile games but didn’t have any internal UX/UI developers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After discussing our ideas for the game with them, I provided some hand-drawn mockups. Plastik provided several concepts, starting with the game’s main screen. The game has a sci-fi, cyberpunk setting, so they created a futuristic design. Once we agreed on the overall UI concept, Plastik redesigned up to 100 screens. They’re doing part-time work now because we’re focused on development, but we still request they make small changes or updates or add new features.

What is the team composition?

The owner did the main concept work in the beginning and then brought on another designer.

How did you come to work with Plastik?

I’d worked with Plastik’s owner before. When he told me he’d started his own studio, I shared multiple design tasks with him.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent between $10,000–$15,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Judges at a gaming event thought our prototype's interface was cool and weren’t confused by it at all. Its design was inspired by other sci-fi and cyberpunk games, so it was good they understood what we did.

How did Plastik perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve done well, handling and adapting to the changes that have come up and keeping me updated. We use Trello, InVision (to create clickable prototypes) and a tool for sending sketch files.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They never complain when our clients change their requirements. Instead, they quickly get ready to implement them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I’ve seen.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

To save time, prepare a good specification and share examples of interfaces you like before starting any concept design.
