Working as your dedicated team
Whether you need creative leadership or daily design delivery, we can scale accordingly to support you. We act as an extension of your team across any of our services, fitting into your internal processes and structure.
Why dedicated works
We know that it's hard to scale a team and ensure that you have all the bases covered, especially when particular expertise are needed. This is true for us too which is why we have developed an extended network. For years we've been a trusted partner to our clients, building teams and providing ongoing weekly support that helps them to deliver on time and react to short term needs. By establishing a long term relationship, often off the back of a project, we gain a deep knowledge of our clients brand, business and market so that we can add real value.
How dedicated works
Every relationship is different. And that's the point. We adapt to ensure that the structure we agree works for both sides. We need to ensure that we have the resources ands skills, and can deliver as promised. In return, clients commit to a plan of work or time so that we can organise ourselves for it, taking on other projects only when we have the capacity. A few examples of how we've offered this before are:
- Fixed role days - Allocation of a specific designer/creative for a fixed amount of days per week or month. It's like a trusted freelancer, with the support and backing of our agency. We also recommend rotating individuals on any project to ensure that we can scale or adapt if required. This can include having a team member full time for a short period, like 1 - 2 months in case you're planning a sprint process or have a busy seasonal period.
- Allocated time - Is a flexible approach where we ensure an amount of time per month where we can support clients across a certain service. For example 40 design hours per month which we split and adjust across our team according to the task, availability and seniority. We match the right person and guarantee someone is one hand to react quickly. We learn over time the pace and requirements of the tasks to ensure we can match it.
We've worked with most project management tools and can join your process.
Please note that we're not a freelancer booking agency. Our team are supported by the agency and come with the guarantee of our quality level of services.
Example dedicated roles
We can provide dedicated support across all services but we normally associate it with a specific job title. These include:
- Brand Designer
- Marketing Designer
- UX Designer
- UI Designer
- Film Editor
- Full-Stack Developer
- Webflow Developer
- Shopify Developer
- SEO Manager
It's important to test any relationship to ensure that it works for both sides and that the support matches your needs. We recommend a test period of 3-6 months where we learn about your process and adapt to the requirements. Contract commitments start from approx. 3 months.
