Metro Create captured my attention immediatley with their speed and professionalism once they reached out for a chance at the job, also the outline of pricing and how they intended to complete the job. The job was a simple logo, but the catch was I wanted it done within my preconceived thoughts and with my direction, the project was not ever cost prohibitive and MetroCreate Studios knew that but never once altered their original pricing, even though I had multiple holdups and changes due to corporate branding struggles with a product line I carry. I had the pleasure of working with Eric. Eric then took my ideas and my comparison photos and designed a logo on the first try without any other input from me other than the original discussion. There was no second edits or tweaks the first shot was what I was going for, that impressed me, greatly. Since the original interaction I have since met Eric in person and am going ahead with web designs, Facebook, business cards, and line cards. I have also contracted him to design a logo for a close friend of mine who is just starting a new business himself. His attention to detail, note taking and after conversation follow ups are some of the best I have ever had, within any field. Eric is a rarity, in a world of poor designers who take little interest in a project that may take longer than others, or who churn out sub par designs at a premium just to move on to the next project. If you are contemplating using MetroCreate and Eric and have read this entire review know this you will be contacted by numerous "designers" most with shut down websites, broken portfolio links, some with plagerized artwork who will tell you that the up front cost will vary due to numerous conditions. Eric gave an extremely fair price, worked hard to understand what I was looking for and turned out a logo I am proud to associate my company with. He will be doing everything for me for the foreseeable future due to the professional relationship we have going. You will not be disappointed in his work, attitude or sense of urgency. And if you ever wish to contact me to discuss Eric by all means, ask him for my number and I will gladly go over my experience.Apr 6, 2016VerifiedMetroCreate Studios, LLC's reply
Travis! THANK YOU for the wonderful feedback. I am thrilled to be on your team.
Eric is a true professional. He understood our requirements, and delivered the web template that we wantedright on time!Nov 6, 2015VerifiedMetroCreate Studios, LLC's reply
It was a pleasure working with you Victor. Let me know if you need a hand fitting your content to the template.
I had a very productive training session with Eric. He is professional, patient and knowledgeable about Wordpress, SEO, design and marketing. Im certainly in a better position to manage my website using Headway themes after consulting with Eric. If you are new to Wordpress, themes, SEO or anything related to getting your website off the ground, check out Erics services and client portfolio. When asked, he provided me honest feedback and solid recommendations so that I could make immediate improvements to my site. As my business and site evolves, I would hire Eric again to guide me through the next iteration.Oct 30, 2015VerifiedMetroCreate Studios, LLC's reply
Thank you for the kind words, Melanie. I look forward to any future opportunities to work with you again.
I needed a logo for my small business. Before contacting Metrocreate Studios I tried one of those online, minimal contact sites for a quick design. The logo that was created by this logo design site was put together with a bunch of clip art so I was very disappointed to say the least. I decided to go the professional route and do it right. I found Metrocreate Studios on thumbtack and never looked back. I was contacted right away by Eric and stayed in daily contact with him throughout the process. I ended up with an awesome logo that I love and look forward to working with Metrocreate Studios in the future.Jan 29, 2018Verified
Eric cleaned up and updated our logo and we love it! He is a great listener, asks great questions, and is professional and prompt. We had a quick deadline to meet and he helped us fast track our project so we could get everything done on time. We liked working with him so much we contracted him to complete additional design needs. Great guy, good sense of humor!Jun 10, 2017Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Communication and organization are the keys to success. I am the project manager on all projects and I also execute on many marketing and development projects myself. The first step with any new client is to have a kick-off meeting to discuss what can be expected during the course of the project. From here I will outline the project timeline with milestones. The milestones help clients understand how progress is being made. Each milestone carries with it a meeting either via phone or in person. For website projects the client will have access to the beta website via a secret link to the development server. From this point on, the client has full visibility of the process and can offer insights and real-time feedback. Each project includes at least 1 week of QA/QC time to ensure the finished product functions as planned. We then move to the training milestone. Post-project I am available for questions and additional training. Each website carries with it a 45 day warranty. For non website projects the process will vary but everything we do will carry with it a milestone structure.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The vast majority of my clients are nonprofits, artists, authors and small business in New England and around the country. If you are a nonprofit organization please view more information on the "For Non Profits" tab on the MetroCreate website.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?A recent project that I completed and feel proud of is one for a well-known nonprofit organization with locations in Boston and New York. Room to Grow needed a completely redesigned website that has modern design featuring responsive layout. You can view the project by Googling Room to Grow.
