Longterm design partners over single project booty calls

Outsourcing is outdated. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the odd hard and fast design project as much as the next guy. You know, the ones you say yes to when you’ve had a few too many ‘networking drinks’ only to realise the deadline was yesterday and you drank the budget at the bar last night. But there comes a point when you just have to find the right client and settle down.

Are you picky when choosing a partner? So are we. So is any self-respecting designer. Relationships are a two way street and we can be demanding of our clients (see our over the top rant on how you should brief us). But us creatives do this so that we can truly get invested in your cause and the outcome.

The beauty of a longterm relationship is that there is time for designers to actually get to know your business. Not just through a brief you scribbled down, or that one whirlwind workshop we met you at, but by actually interacting with your brand and product day after day. We will put work into the relationship itself, ride the bumps with you, and actually help you identify how you can grow.

Designers aren’t just gold diggers, sitting on fat retainers while you go out and bring home the bacon. Our job is to champion your users and give you a heads up when there are some new trends and opportunities to improve your product and the way you present it. When you win, we win. Better yet, we’re here when something goes wrong and you need a quick fix. You’ve got our number. We know what you like. You don’t even have to buy us a ‘networking drink’ to get our attention.

A good relationship with a designer means your brand doesn’t go stale. Design trends are our hobby, and we will always keep your product looking fresh for your target audience. Even more importantly we will keep you and your internal stakeholders falling in love with your product over and over again. After all, you need to love your product to really believe in it.

So don’t play hard to get. Let’s both put some skin in the game. Let’s be blood brothers. Let’s get business-married in Vegas. But maybe we can just grab a coffee first…

Don’t know where to start in choosing a partner?
