Is the creative agency your working with the right fit for your firm?
As we all know, design, in the majority of cases comes down to personal opinion.
If you accept that premise then how do you really know if the creative team you are working are the best fit for you?

Who really gives a stuff about design anyway?
I give a stuff. You give a stuff. But what about the prospect looking for a new firm to work with, do they really give a stuff? As a creative (in my previous world) all I’ve ever wanted to do was to make things look great, whether it was designing a new logo, a website,…
