Is this like a stock designer?
Marketed like your own agency on retainer. Flat fee, endless rounds of changes.
The C B fitness logo in their portfolio could cause their client some problems with Golds gym.
"We’ll work through your requests as fast as possible" <-- That looks like the key to making this all work. Yes you may get 'unlimited service', but if it takes an 'unlimited' amount of time to get to a satisfactory result, that's not great value.
The Golds Gym rip-off right at the top of their portfolio is shocking. I wonder if they're just arbitraging crowdsource design sites?
well this is all unshockingly terrible
meet the team, oh ok, so that's the plan? For the same price as 1 Western designer, they throw 15 Phillipinos at project and hope for the best?
the FAQ's are awesome
We’ve created a very streamlined process and only focus on production level graphic design. We won’t do complex jobs like original logos, complicated layout work or website/digital design.
Caveat emptor. You get what you pay for.
no... this is not 'where design is going'...
This is Br3tt B@sh-esque at best... business-minded people who lack any true conceptual creative thinking... fortunately they attract the same type of client... ... let them have each other!!!!
Nothing to worry about.
I'll tell you where it's *trying* to go. Register a new domain name without privacy and prepare for the onslaught of calls, texts, and emails soliciting logo and website design and development services.
It's worse than driving through the parking lot entrance of Home Depot..
looks like it's going right in the shitter
It's just sad how little value people put in some things. I have clients putting up $50m buildings all over the place but won't spend more than $50 for branding.
I know another company pulling in $300m per year that uses Fiverr religiously.
It's gotta be a hell of a challenge to convince companies to spend 6+ figures on a logo.
- Hah! I know that bilullshit. We had a project, 'flagship' office. The logo is a handwritten version of the name, (poorly) traced in Illustrator. Makes me puke.face_melter
- The building design was watered down to the worst boring shite by NCC for cost reasons. An architect did the logo! Was never even asked to work on it. NCC cuntsface_melter
- Design is dead. The money is in data... until the AI's do that for us too.ETM
- It's hilarious - the building looks dated even though only 3 years old and the signage logo is something from the mid 90's. But NCC flipped it for a huge profitface_melter
- The unfortunate part is the $300m company paid good money for their branding, but it's really horrible shit. Really bad. It's just a big mess out there!formed
Awkward video. Smart idea. 1000 clients paying $370 a month is $370k a month. Then they pay 2-3rd world countries to execute the work using prepacked photos and graphics.
The internet will destroy every industry.
What is the agency of the future?
As pointed out above, data combined with design, design that can be proven to drive data, etc. I just read a bunch about the consolidation with large ad agencies buying up small boutique design firms. This way they can have "cool" designers but back it all up with superior data and a full spectrum of services that can reach across the world.
I think it'll be interesting to see how much "data" means more money. I am fairly naive on the subject and should be learning more about it...just in case people want to paste links :-)
A lot of production work could easily be replaced by AI/automation taking prepared elements and following some simple rules to compose ads. The web has already surrendered to templates and the next step is feeding content into software to populate those templates without much human input. Fonts are being designed by AI using existing typefaces as seeds. Neural networks could start encroaching on creative direction too. Copywriting is already formulaic ("At __$companyname_ we believe __$value__, that's why we __$USP__.") and could be done by sophisticated Markov software.
Maybe something in their model is a glimpse of one possible direction design could go, but their work is absolute shite. As is their name and logo.
That's a No from me.
