What was the scope of their involvement?
I made a list of landing pages and other core pages that we wanted to focus on at the beginning, and we went through a number of different exercises to help WANDR understand our business. They talked to a few of our users directly and looked through some comprehensive third-party research that we had.
From there, they moved forward with designing how the site would display information both from a visual and a content—or copy—perspective. They also mapped out the structure of the site and produced several wireframes.
We spent about a week doing rapid iterations with different wireframes, and, once those wireframes were in place for both mobile and desktop, they started on the actual visual components. The visual components took about two weeks to complete.
What is the team composition?
I collaborated mainly with Ed (Head of Strategy, WANDR) and Fred (Product Designer). Fred was my point of contact for specific updates, and Ed was a project manager that synthesized ideas and came up with strategies. I also spoke with Jinny (Founder, WANDR), Mike (Head of Partnerships), and a third individual to get supplementary feedback.
How did you come to work with WANDR?
I came across Jinny’s profile while searching for people to help with a separate project. When I realized that WANDR is an agency, I decided not to use them for that project because it was so limited in scope, but I still enjoyed speaking with Jinny and Ed. They were professional, and I could tell that they would be able to deliver visual elements due to their expertise.
I reached out to other firms for web design services, but WANDR was my first choice. I set up some time with Ed to discuss the scope of the engagement, and he came back with a proposal within a few days. We set up a date to get started—probably a week from when I received the proposal—and that’s when we kicked off the project.
Working with third-party vendors is always a gamble, which is why I used Clutch to help me decide. I was anxious about the amount of money that we were planning to pay them, but they assured me—like most agencies do—that they would facilitate a great engagement.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent around $25,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
The project ran for the past three weeks, and then maybe a week or two prior to that if you count the establishment of the outline of the project as well.
