How did you select this vendor?
We search for local web design companies and found a few vendors including SmallBox. Their team listened carefully to us, offered the most creative solutions to our problems, and demonstrated a high degree of efficiency.
Describe the project in detail.
We met with SmallBox for one of their “Factory Day” sessions, which was highly efficient and gave us valuable insights into our project needs and desired direction. We then moved into the design phase. SmallBox created proposals based on our Factory Day meeting and sought our approval. After that, they started developing the site. The project manager trained me how to use the CMS, and I worked with them to create and input content.
Key site features include distinct portals to connect different audiences with appropriate programming. The CMS is easy to use in-house, and the site maintains DePauw’s branding standards while looking visually distinct.
What was the team composition?
We worked with Jenny (COO, SmallBox), Drew (Design Strategist, SmallBox) who served as our project manager, Neil (Designer, SmallBox), and a web developer.
