How do you choose a Design Consultancy? Relevant experience? Credentials? or is it just Cost?
So for Design Advice, the best way is by recommendation. I it isn’t possible you’ll need to do some searching, that’s probably how you ended up at Juice Factory.
There are hundreds of design companies, large and small, all offering to improve your brand awareness and make you more sales. Ultimately it’s a personal business and you’ll need to like the people you’re dealing with.
Design can be an emotional experience. You’ve spent time getting your company off the ground and you want to take it to the next level. Who do you talk to? Someone who is going to spend the time understanding what it is you do. What you actually deliver and where you want to take your business to.
Large Agencies may have an impressive client list and solid credentials, but you don’t know if the designer who created their relevant work is still with the company and chances are you’ll never actually meet or speak to him. You’ll want to talk to the doer and not necessarily the teller, so small, where you can talk to the person who will produce the work, is best.
Choosing a Consultancy on cost alone would be like spending £150,000 on a car just to take you to the shops, or £150 on an old banger to drive to China. They’ll both do the job, but it’s all about having the right tools for the right job – being comfortable, enjoying the journey and not finding that you have to buy extras along the way or the shear cost burns a massive hole in your pocket.
