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.
Big Push created the strategy for our new website, both updating our image and allowing us to bring in additional donations. Our web site was old, stagnant and difficult to update internally. The new web site has engaged people, encouraged donations and driven volunteers to our organization. As a small community non-profit, we could not afford the web site of our dreams, yet Big Push met that challenge both in terms of cost and design. The staff was easy to work with, flexible, understanding of the nature of nonprofits and easily captured "our story." We can now update the site internally but Big Push remains accessible to answer questions or assist with more difficult plug-ins. The president also has always been accessible and has treated us like an important customer, despite our limited budget. The web site is now an ever-evolving work in progress, meeting the challenges of technology-driven communication that can make or break our place in the world of nonprofits competing for every grant, every donation.
I highly recommend Dionne Katinas to other business owners. Dionne did a wonderful job of creating a marketing identity for my new business. From logo design to production of marketing materials, Dionne was able to work within a tight time frame - and strict industry regulations - to get the job done. Dionne's creative talents enabled her to capture and convey the essence of my business. I am thrilled with the results and very proud of the professional image we project to our current and future clients. I'm really glad that I chose to "Go Above and Beyond..... with Dionne."
I worked with Mr. Morrill as a consultant. His depth of knowledge on different aspects of sales, marketing and sales operations is outstanding. His presentation style is different than what I have seen before in the corporate environment. His ability to find the issues and immediately propose a solution or process is what sets him apart. He also has a teacher's mind where he not only wants to propose a solution but uses that problem as a teaching experience to make sure the audience understands and not make the same mistakes twice. It was a great pleasure to learn from him.
I have been working with Bob Norton for the past 1 year and from my experience I can tell you, having a knowledgeable and mature CEO on my team has had a tremendous impact on my company. I have moved faster and avoided many problems from his guidance. I have seen Bob bring over 30 years of real life, top Level, CEO experience to guide me. He has extensive knowledge in Product development, branding, marketing, finance, sales, building corporate culture, management and much more. These skill sets make a huge difference, because if Bob is on your team, then you can run an idea or question through him and get an instant, clear, well thought out answer. This is what you need as a business owner or entrepreneur. He not just a consultant and a coach but is very creative and is always providing new tools that help me grow as an entrepreneur, CEO and leader. Dont experiment by trial and error, or make wild uneducated guesses. This method will lead to slow, painful and expensive failures. Get an experienced executive and coach on your team like Bob who knows immediately what works and what doesnt.
