What was the scope of their involvement?
I had a very clear idea of what I wanted the new website to include, so I sent them a rough template to give them an idea of my expectations. From there, they worked around my template and created a great design for the site that would optimize our users’ experience and increase conversion.
They were given a very tight deadline to complete the first version of the website because we needed it to be up-and-running by what we anticipated would be our biggest sale day to date. They delivered a high-quality first version on deadline, and we’re currently working with them on a second version.
What is the team dynamic?
Our main contact is Mario Vassiliades [Founder and Designer, Series Eight]. We also worked closely with Francesca Yacoumis [Designer, Series Eight]. But we were introduced to the entire Series Eight team — they had access to us and we had access to them.
How did you come to work with Series Eight?
I interviewed over 10 website developers before reaching out to the CEO of company whose website we admired. He was kind enough to direct us to Series Eight, who handled their website’s development. After chatting with Mario, I decided to move forward with Series Eight because they operate at a very high caliber and really grasp our complex product and its brand identity.
How much have you invested with them?
They have an ongoing contract with us, so we don’t have the final amount, but so far, we’ve invested a little over $13,400.
What is the status of this engagement?
We partnered with them in early October. The first version of our website was finished on October 29th, and we’re in the process of building the second.
