BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of a nutrition and wellness company located in the San Francisco Bay area. I work with clients virtually all over the world. I help people in recovery from addiction by creating personally tailored programs that include specific recommendations, health practices, recipes and support strategies to address their unique situation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SUVA Inc?

My company shifted focus from a general nutrition service to a more narrow specialty, targeting a very unique need in a market place. I needed to redesign the existing website to reflect this shift and these new services. I also needed a more professional look that matched the level of expertise I provided.

What were your goals for this project?

The main objective of the project was to introduce my new coaching program and me as a leading expert in the field of nutrition and wellness for addiction recovery. I also needed a website that would generate new leads and make it easy for customers to schedule an appointment.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

When I started looking for a designer, I was very fortunate to get a referral to Suva and they were available to help. After our initial meeting, it was clear that Suva would be a perfect partner to help me re-brand my company.

They listened and asked very specific questions that showed they were not just interested in making something look good but to make sure it was going to meet my business objectives and connect with my specific target audience.

It’s like they were an extension of my business team and were fully invested in making sure that my brand was successful from the beginning and had a long term growth strategy. And their prices were a fraction of any large agency for the same quality work but with a more personal approach.

Describe the project in detail.

Before we began working we had a discovery meeting were Suva team and I discussed the best way to reach the main goals for the project and what areas needed work.

We began the project with a brand strategy session where Suva help me identify my ideal client, what their challenges were and how to best help them with those challenges. This resulted in a new business name, positioning, strategy, messaging, new logo and content strategy for the new site.

Suva listened to my needs and provided guidance and intelligent information every step of the way, I felt included in the entire creative process. Because they took the time to get to know me and my business on such a deep level, in most cases they anticipated my needs before I even knew I needed them.

For the website, in addition to the wireframes and writing direction, Suva also provided a professional photo shot list with detailed styling art direction, location preference, wardrobe and specific images photographer needed to take.

Before the team started working on the website they created a mini coming soon page that was full of useful information. This enabled me to start networking and building my contact list of potential new clients right away.

The final website was fully custom designed and coded where every page had unique layout, function and content based on our original wireframes and I am able to make any future edits via easy-to-use Squarespace backend. The final deliverables also included business cards, digital brochures, program handouts and fillable forms for clients.

Suva continues to update my site, create monthly newsletters, and generate weekly graphics for two key social media accounts.

What was the team composition?

I was working directly with the two owners who are also the designers which made the whole process very easy and provided immediate replies. Suva team is a powerhouse and a very well oiled machine. They know their stuff and they are willing to let you be involved in the process.

They are also very personable and easy to talk to and made all of our meetings both educational and entertaining. I looked forward to our bi-weekly calls.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final website and branding were beyond my expectations and wildest dreams! Suva over delivered in every aspect and provided so much more value and high standards to my program and services.

I got a ton of wonderful feedback and it gave me the confidence to share my services with high-end clients. My new website is thoughtful, bright, fresh and totally cutting-edge and has been an invaluable tool in generating new business.

All of my business forms, program handouts, and social media accounts have clear branding standards and look super professional, creating a great brand experience for my clients.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The communication was instant via phone and email. The project schedule was managed very effectively, I always knew what was being worked on and when certain parts were due.

Since I am located on the west coast and Suva is based in New York all presentations were held virtually using google meet which made it very easy to schedule reviews and for me to provide feedback.

They were always available when I had questions and made extra effort to provide additional references and recommend super useful tools.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I knew from seeing Suva's portfolio that they were very talented designers but they were so much more! Their branding expertise and design skills together with an understanding of consumer behavior and business strategy is a rare combination.

What I found most impressive is their insight, attention to the smallest detail, their amazing ability to know what I need before I need it, and the work ethic they put into my business.

What sets them apart from other small agencies is their range of top quality services and their approach to design. They don’t just take orders, they ask a lot of questions. They take the time to get to know you and your customers, they want to know what your strengths are as well as stress points.

They use strategy in their process and are very good at translating that strategy into effective creative solutions. Everything is done for a reason. There is nothing cookie-cutter about their work.

The end result is not only completely custom, unique and beautiful but also functional. All deliverables were designed with a purpose to appeal to a specific customer and to provoke a specific response. I now consider them as an integral part of my business and an extension of my team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None! They are a dream team!
