Feedback summary: 

Visual71 is flexible and responsive, quickly responding to our concerns and questions. They maintain constant contact and use tools that allow feedback in real time. End users like the new website, saying it’s much more professional than the older version.

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 a project manager at European Security Academy, an organization that offers courses in vital security skills and services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Visual71?

We needed a partner to help us refresh our brand, including a website redesign.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Together with Visual71, we reviewed all of our different printed materials (e.g. flyers, certificates, catalogs) and discussed which ones were necessary and how we could change them to make them more consistent with the overall feeling of our brand. They also redesigned our website because it was a bit outdated and not as cohesive as we’d have liked. They changed the colors, copy, and layout of the different pages, making them match our brand better. The website is nearly complete, with only a few small projects remaining.

What is the team composition?

The co-owner is our main point of contact.

How did you come to work with Visual71?

I was looking for a few companies, and I wanted one that was nearby so that we could communicate easier. A friend introduced me to Visual71, so I met with them. They were extremely professional and had good past work, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between $30,000–$40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We partnered in December 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

People have given positive feedback about the site, saying it looks much better and more professional. Various metrics have also improved, showing that more people are visiting the site more often.

How did Visual71 perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re flexible and meet our deadlines. Whenever we have questions, they answer them in a timely manner. They communicate well, and we use Slack, email, and phone calls to stay in touch. We also use InVision so that I can see and comment on their work in real time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They listen to our needs and tailor solutions to our specific challenges. Unlike other firms, they provide various options and give us time to decide which ideas we like best.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any ways they could improve. We're happy with our partnership.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Maintain an open dialogue—the more they know about your company, the better the advice and service they can give.

We wanted a new look that matched our culture and remained consistent across various media.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our success is shown through an increased number of diverse users. We also received positive feedback from multinational firms, startups, and other businesses.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Since our team was working across Europe and the Middle East, we utilized video conferencing solutions to make our communication seamless. Visual71 made arrangements well ahead of time and committed to all deadlines.  We did not face many challenges during the design and implementation phase and those we did encounter were resolved immediately.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Visual71 is an innovative and experienced group of professionals. They understood our vision, beliefs, and aspirations as a customer. They went beyond our expectations and conducted extensive research across the market to help create a standout design.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the marketing manager for a company that offers workplace consulting and interior design for corporate clients in central Europe. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Visual71?

We asked Visual71 to create new branding for us. We’d changed our company profile and didn't identify with the existing branding anymore.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed branding that reflected our company, wasn’t too serious, and helped us stand out from our industry competition.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our CEO met Visual71’s co-founder at a venue, and then they started conducting initial interviews. They were the only company that communicated with us like an old friend; they weren't vain or too careful.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We started with developing the new logo. Then, we worked on our primary website as well as a second website with a different persona. Visual71 visited our office a couple of times to get to know us better, as we hadn’t provided an in-depth brief. In the end, we had a new logo, tagline, brand colors, custom pattern, logo book, business cards, PPT presentations, and two websites.

What was the team composition?

I worked directly with Visual71’s two co-founders.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our new branding is cohesive, which was the most important part for us. Our clients always compliment us on our new look. Everything always looks custom-made for each meeting. Clients often ask our sales department where we got such attractive business cards.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We met according to the schedule in our contract.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We’re a busy team, but Visual71 never reproached us for delayed communication. Sometimes, we took a long time to give them an answer because we had to prioritize our clients. They were always friendly and understanding, even when we made the project frustrating for them.

I also value their creativity. We wanted something completely different from everything else on the market, and they did exactly what we asked.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I think we have more to address than they do.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a trading company that operates in various retail areas, including furniture and interior design.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Visual71?

The company operates mainly in B2B markets, which define our main mission, vision, and visual identification system. Our challenge was to adapt this branding for our commercial network, which has different business objectives than our B2B area.

What were your goals for this project?

We also had to maintain a connection to the company’s general branding and key visuals. That is why we were looking for a partner who would understand our needs on the one hand and who would accept constructive criticism and objective evaluation on the other.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My team searched and directly interviewed potential agencies that provide professional branding services. We considered price conditions, time of completion, creativity, uniqueness of approach, and ideas and experience in the implementation of similar projects. Visual 71 convinced us with a professional approach that was tailored to our needs and our concept of the trade network brand.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The process began with workshops carried out at the level of staff, management, and the president of the board. During these workshops, the agency presented two different development concepts.

After choosing the right path, Visual71 implemented a key visual design for the trade network. They gave us clear, simple guidelines for developing a consistent brand and marketing environment.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with Przemyslaw Pawlak, who offered effective communication, understanding, and cooperation.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After the implementation of key visuals, we have found it easy to create new advertisements and image projects. Our graphic designers use the new concept and adopted principles to create a coherent visual identity system.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Cooperation and communication were facilitated through direct contact with Mr. Pawlak. He approached everything with a professional, objective approach to achieving our goals.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Visual71 is a small design office that fully commits to the implementation of client-focused projects. I wish everyone had such a partner to work with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There is always room for improvement. I hope that they continue to offer excellent development while maintaining their unique client approach.

We develop biometric identity products and solutions for a wide range of applications in consumer travel and border management, access control, financial services, and identity programs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Visual71?

We were looking for a design studio to partner with long-term, one that could deliver high fidelity work for a variety of branding needs, while staying true to the brand identity that we had already established.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve been working with Visual71 for about 1 ½ years now. They’ve helped us with designing and developing a wide range of branding projects including but not limited to: product photography, product animations, packaging, renders, digital ads, email and collateral templates, web development, and app user interface design.

How did you come to work with Visual71?

We found Visual71 through a direct referral. We continue to work with Visual71 because they always go above and beyond in delivering thoughtful work, regardless of the size and scope of the project. They ask the right questions to fully understand our needs and always provide valuable input.

How much have you invested with Visual71?

We’ve spent over $75,000 with them. In general, their services are very cost-effective, especially for startups with a lean budget. The quality of work is equal to what’s available in the San Francisco Bay Area for half the cost.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Visual71 in October 2015 and we have an ongoing partnership.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Visual71 helped us create a beautiful, simple, and intuitive support site which has allowed us to provide better, faster customer service. Customers have a means to access a knowledge base for immediate support or create tickets for direct assistance. Since we’ve launched the support site, our response time to customers has improved by 65% as compared to using regular email. We also experienced an increase in booth traffic at events driven by interest in the product animation videos.

What did you find most impressive about Visual71?

What sets them apart is their diverse set of skills from brand identity to user interface/user experience knowledge. Beyond that, they truly have their clients’ best interest in mind and always want to make sure we are happy with the result.

Feedback summary: 

Through engaging with Visual71, the client is pleased that the design of their app helps to differentiate the company and appeal to a wider user base.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Vitrius is a cloud-based investor relations platform used by venture capital and private equity firms. Our app allows companies to share reporting and payments with investors. Vitrius was founded two years ago and covers a big chunk of the Western European market.

I am the co-founder and chief executive officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Visual71?

We needed a complete redesign of our platform. If we were to make the information on our app attractive and intuitive, we needed a beautiful design.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Vitrius offers an investment fund service which requires a lot of email and Dropbox-based communication for each investment in terms of total worth, how the money should be invested, and so on. Design became more and more important for us because we wanted to offer a visually-rich experience through our app. Visual71 redesigned the front-end of our web-based application from scratch.

How did you come to work with Visual71?

We are based in Amsterdam, while a significant part of our development team is in Wrocław, Poland. We needed a local designer and contacted around five agencies. Although Visual71 was the smallest out of all the candidates, they had the best pitch by far. Other agencies simply talked about their work, showing us irrelevant examples. Visual71 had a more tennis-match approach as they engaged with us and asked many questions. Only after an hour did they start showing us some of their work, after fully understanding our business need. From Visual71's approach and pitch, we could see that they were professionals.

How much have you invested with Visual71?

The total cost of Visual71's services has been between $10,000 and $50,000. It may seem low, but it's standard pricing for Poland. The quality of work is comparable to what we could get in Amsterdam, where we could easily multiply the cost by four or five times.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our initial project had a two-month duration, and it only involved a landing page redesign. We were very happy with it, so we've continued to work with Visual71 every month. We have a long-term collaboration with Visual71 because they deliver every time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We gave Visual71 carte blanche for their work and the fact that a designer can completely surprise us is a good thing. For the second design of our landing page, Visual71 came up with something completely unexpected, unlike what a company like ours would use. The design is a differentiating factor for our company.

What did you find most impressive about Visual71?

We are working with our own UX [user experience] designer, who is in charge of mock-ups. Visual71 has not only created beautiful designs based on those mock-ups but has also provided improvements in terms of functionality. Visual71 can confidently create designs that go the extra mile.

Are there any areas Visual71 could improve?

Visual71 doesn't have a lot of experience with international companies. They're not entirely confident about working with some clients and they opt to stay on the safe side. If they overcome this hesitancy, Visual71 will be able to grow.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Visual71?

We needed to develop a new identity and website.                                       

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

We developed a website through WordPress and are still in the process of developing a new brand identity.

How did you come to work with Visual71?

I emailed a ton of these branding firms. I realized that any American firm that would offer the same quality as Visual71 would be totally out of my budget because American design firms take $10,000 and just give you a stock theme from WordPress.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was around $10,000 for the design and development of our website.

What is the status of this engagement?

The website took around two months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The website results have been great. Our web traffic has improved dramatically and our sales leads are up 25 percent since Visual71's redesign.

What distinguishes Visual71 from other providers?

Przemek [Pawlak, CEO and cofounder at Visual71] is super responsive and is willing to go above and beyond to make sure that we are totally satisfied. When things aren't going well, and we need another draft, Przemek never mentions a change of scope or anything like that. He cares about the quality he provides.

In hindsight, are there areas in which they could improve or things you might do differently?

No. Nothing comes to mind.
