Feedback summary: 

zgraya digital fostered a dependable partnership and effectively facilitated the rebrand of a platform with over 5 million users. The team seamlessly adapted resources according to the client’s development requirements. Their dedication led to their involvement in significantly impactful projects.

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 the head of product and design at BlitzApp, which is an e-sports and analytics platform. I’m essentially building an AI for coaching players on how to improve in major competitive e-sports games.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with zgraya digital?

Initially, we wanted an announcement site as we planned to open a facility for our e-sports team. I later needed help with development and rebranding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

zgraya digital initially worked on the concept, initial designs, and the implementation of our microsite working in WebGL. Their team made a responsive website for announcing the facility.

For the second project, their team first pitched a couple of concepts for my brand strategy. From there, we moved onto logo styles that worked with the concept. Then, we created wireframes and conceptual designs to apply the brand. They then implemented the approved design, polished the UI, and wrote copy.

For the development, they essentially attached a couple of developers to my development team. Their team did frontend development in React to push out mobile optimization. They helped to create our log in design and marketing-based landing pages.

What is the team composition?

We consistently worked with two developers and a project manager. They were able to add or remove developers according to my team’s needs. At the beginning of the project, there was a team of about three designers.

How did you come to work with zgraya digital?

I found them online via design websites. I initially worked with them on my company’s website.

How much have you invested with them?

The first project cost about $25,000 and the second project cost about $50,000 plus the supporting development work.

What is the status of this engagement?

I initially worked together between August–November 2019. On the second project, we worked together between February–August 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They put a lot of effort into building a personal relationship with our team. We felt that we could rely on them for any of our needs.

Their team helped me to rebrand a platform that has over 5 million daily active users. They designed a website for a $50 million e-sports facility, and our influencers who’re associated with the facility have a footprint of about 30 million a month. Those are nice numbers, and I trusted them with the design and development of those projects.

How did zgraya digital perform from a project management standpoint?

The beginning and end of the project were orderly. There was a drop off in the middle because they restructured. When given the room, they coordinated well. Their team was flexible, adding and removing people as my development team needed; that was great.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Valentin (CEO) stood out in his ability to pitch clients. I spoke with a lot of agencies and the time, and their team put together the best presentation and fostered the best conversation. They accommodated my team’s needs. Their team invested in an interpersonal relationship.

Are there any areas they could improve?

About two months ago, their company when through a split. There was a lot of turnover, and their communication suffered. Previously, their team responded to our changes and helped us to implement projects. When communication suffered, I felt that I couldn’t hand them more projects. Now, they have everything back in order.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be absolutely transparent about how you feel. If you’re unhappy, they’ll do their best to fix the situation.

Since the company was acquired by another business, zgraya digital showed extreme flexibility and dedication when the direction of the project changed. They seamlessly followed the new company's style guidelines in their deliverables and maintained excellent communication with the company.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company was recently acquired by 8x8. I manage the digital marketing campaigns for the CPaaS business in Asia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire zgraya digital?

Our company was recently acquired by 8x8 and the website needed a full revamp to the 8x8 style and feel. We hired zgraya digital to handle our design and development for the new website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to make sure the new website had a clear customer journey, was aesthetic, fulfilled the 8x8 style guidelines, and increased conversion rate.

SOLUTION

How did you select zgraya digital?

My team searched for designers and developers both locally and globally. We met with a few agencies but selected zgraya digital because of their design skills, competency in answering all our questions regarding development and overall professionalism.

Describe the project in detail.

The scope had changed mid-way, as we were no longer just revamping our site, but aligning it with our new company's style guidelines. As such, zgraya digital had to redo the design of our website. zgraya digital was very flexible, and guided us along this process. After that, we spent a few weeks in the development stage, and launched our website in June.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager (that changed mid-way), and we also worked quite closely with the Head of Development. The Head of Development also liaised with our in-house Engineering team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although the project was extended and the scope changed midway, Zgraya was very professional and helped us navigate through the new scope, making our experience as seamless as possible. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the team. They are very knowledgeable in their field, did up a beautiful design and built a user-friendly back-end.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Altogether very good, we spoke mainly through slack and they are very responsive and prompt in providing us updates.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were impressed by their innovative design and the way they merged elements of our old company into the 8x8 style.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Overall satisfied with their work. One unfortunate thing was the change in project manager mid-way, but that couldn't be helped, and they made the transition as easy as possible.

The final product exceeded the client’s expectations. zgraya digital delivered exactly what the client envisioned, and within the timeframe they promised. The team communicated remarkably well. Through responding quickly to emails and holding video meetings, they created a seamless partnership.

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 am the founder and CEO of a startup company called Encredibox. The organization is a web-based, e-commerce, digital product platform.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with zgraya digital?

I had an idea for this company, but I didn’t have the technical expertise to bring my vision to life. I needed a partner that could help make my idea a reality and fill in those technical gaps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built the platform for me. They designed the website based on what I described, then did the backend development. They consulted along the way in doing so.

What is the team composition?

The team was broken into two phases—design and development. In each phase, I had a single point of contact, the project manager who ensured the workflow was going accordingly. During the design phase, there were about four people on the team. During the development phase, there were about 4–5 people as well.

How did you come to work with zgraya digital?

I did a search online and looked at references and reviews at a few companies. I chose them because their sample websites were much better than the others I’ve seen. They have a great ability to combine technical look and feel with sharp imagery. They were also competitive on pricing. During the proposal process, they were the only team that brought a mockup that showed how my vision would translate.

How much have you invested with them?

It’s in the $30,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted May­–September 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered within the timeframe in which they said they would. The deliverable matched the vision. It exceeded my expectations. I also felt comfortable taking over the deliverable. I initially had a lot of concern taking over that, but they did a great job of teaching me along the way and providing me with resources to make that transition easier.

How did zgraya digital perform from a project management standpoint?

All the communication was seamless. Even though we were in different time zones, that was not an issue. What I liked best about that team was that they managed me as much as I was managing the project. They made sure that I stayed on task as well, so it was a great partnership.

Meetings went smoothly. We had video conference calls and email was great. They respond within 24 hours.

Project management was very well done. At the beginning of the project, they laid out all major milestones with timelines attached to them. They also included expectations for each portion of the project.  We met pretty often and on a regular basis to get the project going. They were flexible with their time as well. Overall, they were on top of everything. They never missed a milestone or deadline.

The way the project was managed allowed all of us to step up.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to anticipate the extra needs required to make the product extraordinary truly stood out. I’m not really a technical person, but they were able to plan ahead to deliver on my vision. They really brought the best out of the project. Between their work quality and project management style, they were great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, my experience has been great with them. Nothing disappointed me. They did everything they said they were going to.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Really think about your vision and lay it out upfront. Even if you think something isn’t possible, they’re great at finding workarounds.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO and founder of Cognuse Inc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with zgraya digital?

We needed someone to do the UX/UI portion of our frontend app for native iOS and Android.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did the UX/UI user flows and the design of the UI itself. They did wireframes and thought through the navigation of the user interface. They gave some feature level feedback as well on what would work best. It was a total of 160-200 hours of development work. We gave them the existing version of the app that had very little design. They did the whole thing from login, core features, profile pages, help, and settings.

What is the team composition?

There are four people that worked on the project.

How did you come to work with zgraya digital?

We were looking at a couple options of whether to hire someone locally or within our team. We contacted them through LinkedIn. We reviewed their portfolio. We started the discussions just before COVID-19 hit and then there was a few months’ delay before getting started because more funding didn’t come through yet. They were patient and we established some trust that way and started working over the summer months.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent €6,000 (approximately $7,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June-August 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a good job. They understood the target group. It wasn’t too fancy or flashy because the color scheme and design needed to be soft Miami colors. There were 3-4 people from our side reviewing it and providing feedback. Everybody is happy with the end result.

How did zgraya digital perform from a project management standpoint?

We had weekly update calls. They were on time with no major delays. They were able to hand it over to our native development team that then developed the apps. It was quite seamless. The development team didn’t have any complaints or hiccups. They stayed within budget.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They delivered just as well as an in-house resource.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, our core team was happy with the result. They delivered on everything we agreed upon.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They were pretty flexible. I’d encourage others to not just take everything from the initial proposal. There’s always room for negotiations.

Feedback summary: 

zgraya digital delivered not only an aesthetically pleasing design but also one that illuminates the business’s unique selling position and serves to drive conversions. Their focus on helping the client achieve long-term business goals set them apart, as did their detail-oriented approach.

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 co-founder and the CEO of OSOM finance. We’re fintech-focused on the crypto space. We offer a variety of cryptocurrency-related services, from custody to exchange and portfolio management. We’re growing that into a bigger tool, which will allow personal finance management across all asset classes. We’re based in Estonia and are active globally, although mainly in Europe.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with zgraya digital?

When we started going to market, we were struggling with creating a solid landing page that would allow us to convert users quickly. We iterated through several versions of the landing page, and it would always come back with poor conversion metrics. We were looking to optimize the conversion funnel of our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

zgraya digital created the whole design concept of the web page, including its UX flow and customer journey. Aside from making the page pretty, they helped us think through the sequence in which we should show messages, and how it should all be structured and built out. It was website design, but with a heavy focus on UX.

We did our own development, so zgraya digital just helped us put the concept together.

What is the team composition?

We worked with 4–5 people, including an art director, an account manager, and 1–2 designers.

How did you come to work with zgraya digital?

It was a referral from someone we knew in Ukraine. We’d also met zgraya at a conference, and the combination of the referral and us meeting them in person helped. Their portfolio was really diverse, and we liked it. They were also competitive in terms of price.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent €10,000–€15,000 (approximately $11,800–$17,800 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with zgraya between December 2019–February 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They helped us reorder messages in order to make our value proposition stand out. We had general information, but we didn’t get to the unique selling position (USP) until a few pages down. zgraya helped us reconsider the whole buildup, leading with the USP in a strong way. That’s where they made a strong impact early on in the process.

We had a creative director on our side who was very detail-oriented and tended to focus on small things. zgraya was able to manage our creative director in a good way, helping channel his energy into something proactive. They brought into perspective whether what we were doing would serve our purpose. During every call we had with them, they didn't go back to whether it would be pretty or not — which is all subjective — but to whether it would achieve our goals or not.

zgraya’s focus on the broader business is something I want to highlight. The agencies we’d come across were artsier and more focused on aesthetics, while zgraya focused on how their work would contribute to the bottom line of the business. That was refreshing, and it really stood out to us.

How did zgraya digital perform from a project management standpoint?

We really liked them, and we found them to be quite different from our previous providers. zgraya's approach was to lock things in step by step, whereas the previous providers we used would create a very big concept and ask us to sign off on the whole thing. zgraya moved element by element, which gave us a lot less to digest at once and allowed us to focus on the details, so that we could really think through every item. They guided us on our thinking, making sure that it all came together into something very pretty at the end.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very focused on the business purpose. While their work is creative and situated in the art domain, it’s clear that zgraya came in not to make art for the sake of art but to help us achieve our business goals. That echoed with everyone in our company that took part in the project, and everyone was impressed with their approach.

Are there any areas they could improve?

This could be seen as a good thing, but I think that they were sometimes too firm in their suggestions. This was minor and not something that would’ve made us reconsider working with them had we known about it beforehand. In hindsight, I can understand why they did it this way. They have the experience to build up a website so that it converts, but it felt like they were inflexible in their approach. I think that it was more to do with the mode of the presentation. 

When they have a debate with a client, they can be a bit too firm at times, and they could highlight the business value better. To us, that became obvious only after it was implemented. zgraya could’ve held our hand a bit more when they were suggesting their ideas. Knowing that now, I don’t think we would’ve made a different decision. We’re extremely happy with the work zgraya has done, and we’d work with them again if we had to do it all over again.  

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

My advice is to really trust zgraya. They have the client’s best interests at hand. This is easier said than done when working with a provider, but the value delivered by zgraya is fantastic.

Discussions were followed by rapid modifications and improvements to the design which provided for a very quick design cycle. Communication in design is very challenging, but this is where they stand apart from other design teams. We are very satisfied with the workflow and communication of the team.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Excellent communication and work very quickly with an emphasis on the quality of design.

Describe the project in detail.

We needed to design the app from scratch for both UX and UI. We developed a functional prototype for the agency to understand the scope and the core functionalities. Then in multiple brainstorming sessions, we refined the UX and UI until we ended up with the design of the entire app.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm CMO in a Business IT company with HQ in Tallinn, Estonia. We have about 115 employees. We work both in B2B and B2C, providing cloud solutions such as data storage and data center's design. My area of expertise in digital marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire zgraya digital?

At the moment of hiring Zgraya digital, we have several inner brands which was not properly related to each other for our customers. Our idea was to create a web portal describing all the structures and goals of our businesses.

What were your goals for this project?

We'd like to make it's more clear for our (potential) customers what's the idea of our company, who's behind the brand, and make a portfolio. Another goal was to create a web page with a modern award-winning design.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We spent time trying to achieve the goal by in-house resources but the result was not good enough. Then we started to find out 3rd party solution - a design studio with a good portfolio and experienced enough to our plans.

We were looking through 3 proposals and choose this vendor because of the quality of their previous works and innovative ideas they could offer during the negotiation period.

Describe the project in detail.

During the session zero, we received from the vendor an approximate road map with all the meetings and development details we should go through.

During the next meetings, we received a few design examples with research data about current design trends. To be honest, our part was mostly in reviewing mockups and sharing additional information about our company so the vendor could create a unique web page concept from scratch.

As well as the vendor took a part in creating a specific photo set for our team during the first week of cooperation.

What was the team composition?

During the cooperation, there were at least 4 people from the vendor side which I contacted: designer team lead, project manager, designer, content creator. As far as I understood there were developers behind the scene as well. I do not remember any changes in the vendor team back then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We received positive feedback both from stakeholders and customers. And won three design awards ( by THE CSS DESIGN AWARDS COMMUNITY): ux, ui, innovation.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

There were no problems at all. We always have weekly meetings so we could have all the fresh updates. Punctuality is a strong side of the vendor's team both in simple meetings and on the road map. As far as I remember we did not use any special tools to manage the workflow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by such innovative ways of thought in the vendor team. They could find a fresh point of view on trivial issues and offer uncommon solutions.

Are there any areas for improvement?

To be honest, I have nothing to add here.
