What was the team composition?

We had a team of three guys helping with our project

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s difficult to choose art, but when I saw the work product from the guys at Pound Design it was a clear choice. Their design is innovative, crisp and unique. We have had them do logo branding, website design, social media copy and promotional product design. We have had our new logo less than 6 months and people already identify it with our company. All that and they are super easy and fun to work with!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Smooth, super easy to work with

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Quality of designs presented, hard to choose!

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, just need more of them!
