Pet Professional Web Design

Nailed It Denver is a mobile pet nail trim specialist. They offer both in home nail trims as well as clinics across the Denver metro areas. Being mobile has an extra need for website automation and flow. The systems we helped put in place through their website make on-boarding new clients and marketing to leads a breeze!

Psychiatrist Website

Orange Psychiatric Associates, founded by Dr. Rashesh Dholakia, is a psychiatry group in Altamonte Springs, Florida. We worked with Dr. Dholakia on his new branding, stationary, and website. After deciding to relocate to Florida from PA, he chose a name that was fitting to the area he would be practicing in. We worked with a corporate yet modern

design to play off of the word Orange. By working with a soft color palette, his brand conveys trust and professionalism. The sprouts / leaves inside the orange are a symbol of personal growth.

The website we created for him not only showcases his services, including highlighting his work with child psychiatry, but also gives a feeling of trust and comfort. With the capabilities to easily find his address and having clients’ initial questions answered by browsing his services section, his website eliminates a potentially tedious on boarding process of bringing in new patients.

best suitable for their individual marketing plans.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a company called The Beekeeper’s Daughter. We sell a variety of products, including raw and filtered honey, candles, etc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Shanty Town Design?

I reached out to Shanty Town Design to help us update our look. A friend of mine had been doing our graphic design, but we really wanted to unify our design across all of our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Shanty Town Design redesigned and created the packaging for a lot of our products, doing a whole branding package for us. Using my vision, Samantha (Founder & Creative Director, Shanty Town Design) enhanced our original designs and developed new ones. 

Across several of our items, including our “bee van”, honey-themed products, our storefront and bottling facility decals, they handled the logo creation and overall look. Samantha also designed our billboards, social media images, and labels, amongst other things. They handle smaller scale tasks too, like small advertisements for local use and sponsoring tools. 

What is the team composition?

Samantha is my main point of contact, but I know she has a team working on the project with her. 

How did you come to work with Shanty Town Design?

I saw Shanty Town Design’s work online and felt it resembled our style. I reached out and Samantha was very kind; I could tell she understood my vision. 

How much have you invested with them?

It’s hard to estimate how much we’ve spent, since a lot of projects over the years have been nickel-and-dime tasks. I’d guess we’ve spent around $5,000 or more.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together during the summer of 2016 and it’s very much an ongoing engagement. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The design of everything Shanty Town Design has produced completely fulfills our expectations. People have come up to us and complimented our branding and marketing. Samantha has done a great job of unifying our products and putting everything together in a cohesive way. The social media ads and other creative work have been very impressive. 

How did Shanty Town Design perform from a project management standpoint?

They do a really great job and are very professional. Samantha always gets back to us in a timely manner. Although some of the work can take a little longer to get from the graphic designers, I always know she’s working on our project and doing a good job. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Shanty Town Design has great vision—they always know what’s trendy and have an artistic eye. Compared to the last company we worked with, they really know what looks good and are up to date on the industry.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything for them to improve—I don’t have any complaints. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Just be very clear about what you want. Sometimes I have a vision in my mind about what I want, yet if I don’t explain it well, their team can’t produce exactly what I need. The more descriptive you are about what you want, the more you’ll limit the amount of back and forth that has to happen. They’re great, but no one is a mind-reader so it’s up to you to communicate.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Shanty Town Design designed a very professional, user-friendly website that continues to attract potential customers and receive positive feedback. They've also streamlined appointment setting processes, saving a tremendous amount of time. Their responsiveness to client needs sets them apart. 

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 owner of Nailed it Denver, a specialty nail trim service for cats, dogs, and select small animals. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Shanty Town Design?

I initially reached out to Shanty Town Design to design and develop my website, along with some other branding and marketing collateral. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Shanty Town Design designed and developed a website from scratch on WordPress, customizing one of the themes I selected. They made the two different types of services we offer (in-home versus events) very clear on the site. 

We provided a logo, but they designed other materials including posters, flyers, and printed reminders for our less tech-savvy customers. They also designed commission sheets, personalized cards we send out to clients when a pet passes away, and intake forms for appointments. 

What is the team composition? 

I mainly just work with Samantha (Founder and Creative Director, Shanty Town Design).

How did you come to work with Shanty Town Design?

I met Sam through a small business networking group in Denver. After she made an appointment to sit down with me, we hit it off right away so I decided to give them a try. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested under $5,000 thus far. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working together since February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Shanty Town Design developed our online presence from the ground up. Our page has had over 1,300 page views thus far. I get a tremendous amount of positive feedback, including that the site is easy to use, clean, and very professional. Meanwhile, the intake forms they've designed have streamlined appointment setting, saving me hours of time on the phone each week. 

How did Shanty Town Design perform from a project management standpoint?

They're great to work with overall. I don't have to micromanage any aspects of their work–they're on top of it. We primarily communicate through Facebook messenger, but I email or call Sam for more urgent requests. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They provide personalized customer service. Sam is also very receptive to client feedback and doesn't try to push her own branding ideas too much. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. As their company grows, I imagine they'll need a bigger team to take on more projects. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be very clear about project goals and objectives, so they have a good starting point.
