What was the scope of their involvement?
They’ve played a role for us on a number of projects and have helped with things like content strategy and copywriting. We use them primarily for their design services but the work they do for us is really diverse. Projects they’ve assisted with include website rebuilds and launches for a top-five grant making foundation, a non-profit film center, an independent and avant garde cinema promoter, and a stock photo exchange site.
Primarily, they work on website architecture, including sitemaps and content models; UX design, including page layout, user journeys, and visual design; and branding or design direction for clients. They help produce final assets in a wide array of platforms and frameworks, including WordPress, Drupal, and Ruby on Rails. We also build in open source technologies. Laravel is our primary platform on PHP.
What is the team composition?
We work primarily with Joe [Managing Partner, Transfuture] and Erin [Creative Director, Transfuture]. We’ve worked with one other member of their team as well.
How did you come to work with Transfuture?
They reached out to us a number of years ago, possibly after seeing an article about us in a local paper. We met with them a few times to learn more about their services and capabilities. We engaged with them on smaller projects initially, which grew in size and complexity.
How much have you invested with them?
Our total investment is between $300,000 and $500,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve worked together for over 15 years. Our relationship with Transfuture goes back to 2002, possibly 2001. We recently completed a project together last year and the relationship is ongoing.
