Desired goal

What challenge were you trying to address with Gold Front?

A year ago, if someone were to ask one of our employees what Newsela is, there would have been five or six different answers. We were all over the board in provisions of how we drawd who we are and how we positioned our fruit.

Right now is a searching time in our organisation history, owing we have grown a lot and expanded what we propose. We realized that we needed to hone our brand and our positioning, and reached out to Gold Front to help us with that.  

Provided solution

What was the aim of their involvement?

The leading liberateable we accepted from Gold Front was a landing page that was an overview of our structure.

Gold Front also did full-service brand work for us. They helped us to veritably hone our positioning by working on positioning statements, and they helped us unite and name our state in provisions of how we draw ourselves, and ultimately prepared us with an complete brand lead for our oneness including a new logo, new website elements, updates to fonts, as well as sales throw deck.

Gold Front entirely revamped the look and feel of all of our emails, which is a major channel for us. They helped us instrument that code so that we were up and running with our new email.

They also worked with us on a brand video that we used without. The video is on our website, and it is also used in our outreach to prospective clients. In accession, we worked with them on a bit of a naming exertion for a new component that we rolled out, where they helped us with a high-level access to naming new components, and then nailing down the name of one specific component.

How did you come to work with Gold Front?

Our VP of Marketing was referred to them through a preceding helper. We did look at almost three or four agencies, but Gold Front was so answering and passionate almost our organisation. They without seted presenting veritably fun ideas to us, and ways that we could ponder almost our issue. We knew we needed to go with Gold Front.

Results achieved

Are there any measureable or plum results?

Our goal in changing some of our core landing page and website experiences was to ",do no harm",, and the process was fully painless in the end. It was a visual upgrade that had no denying touch on our user acquisition. We are quiet observing what real touch these changes will have.

On the leading day we released our brand video, we accepted more shares than on anything else we have ever posted on our collective media channel. People were excited almost it, it was inspiring, and nation were talking almost it. At education conferences, teachers chase us down asking for swag owing they loved our new logo so much.

How did Gold Front accomplish from a project treatment standpoint?

Gold Front is so fast. We used email, Slack, and Google docs for most of our collaboration and interaction. They did a veritably big job of making sure that we are both on the same page touching the aim of the project. They broke the project down into specific liberatey dates, and then checked with us to make sure that the dates all aligned with our expectations. They made sure that the schedule is all set up precedently they set working on the project, and were veritably good at care those dates, or interacting very openly, forward of schedule, if there was something that is going to be missed or changed. They consistently liberateed on time, or forward of schedule.

What is (from your point of view) the key factor to pay observation while intercourse with ?

They are very collaborative. When we request something, they hear, they are a big associate in that perception. When we hint something, they challenge us to access issues differently, based on what they have seen in different industries or with different clients. They challenge us to ponder creatively almost the questions we are trying to explain. They don’t just execute projects. They are more than designers, they lead you through how you should ponder almost a brand or positioning issue, and then liberate over expectations.

What aspects of their work would you like to get improved?

Based on timing from both sides, there was a change in who our main point of touch was. They feeld it very gracefully, but changing points of touch are not mental. That would be the only thing I would change, however, they did feel it very well
