What was the scope of their involvement?
First, we worked through the branding, and Chris (Founder & CEO, Thompson & Prince) sent me a questionnaire. They came back with comments and further questions to revise and get further clarity on which direction we wanted to go. There were three iterations we continued to work with for the logo and branding.
Chris provided a lot of options, whether we wanted to go a contemporary route or a classic route. He didn’t want to provide his feedback toward the end, so he wasn’t trying to steer us one way or the other. He provided his expertise and guidance later, once we knew what we wanted.
I came up with the name of my company, and they produced our brand guidelines including color information, fonts, and so forth. Then, they produced business card files and letterhead for digital and print. Additionally, they created a background for my business’ LinkedIn profile. They also did an abbreviated version of the logo I can use for different situations.
Also included was a marketing one-pager that helps me tell prospective clients what I do and how I do it. They also tackled the WordPress website, doing everything from A to Z. We told them what we wanted in terms of designs and photos. The stationary includes everything from envelopes, notecards and notepads to glossy folders.
What is the team composition?
I only worked directly with Chris. He was working with several others he contracted out with for certain design elements. All these people were in my budget, though.
How did you come to work with Thompson & Prince?
I don’t have any experience with this, and I started my business rather quickly, so I needed someone I could trust. I didn’t have time to vet a large number of options so I went with the recommendation of a family member.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent $6,500.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together from October 2019 until January 2020.
