Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I work with DesignFive to create assets of all different types - PPTs, one-pagers, videos, ads, banners, etc. - that our internal design team does not have the bandwidth to work on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DesignFive (and Steve in particular) are amazing - they are super nice and accommodating and work their hardest to get you exactly what you want on the first try; and if they don't they welcome your feedback to get the piece where you want it to be. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything I dislike. If I had to say one thing, it would be that sometimes it feels like there's a disconnect between those with a design background and those without. Sometimes it takes a little back and forth to understand what we want or what they're saying would work better. But it all works out in the end! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Work with them! They're awesome! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We send them a ton of work that we need done in relatively short periods of time and they always deliver. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

There are way too many projects that DesignFive has helped out company with. From helping deliver on simple graphic design requests for one-off blogs, to being involved in the visual design of entire research programs, to helping us build out fully fledged product offerings, the DesignFive team has been an integral part of our ability to scale quickly and continuously... and look good while doing it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The team's professionalism, accountability, and consistency are my favorite aspects of working with DesignFive. Steve, our main contact, is an absolute joy to work with, and truly feels like an extension of our team and culture. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They are not the biggest firm, and we ask quite a lot from them across the org, which can stretch them and cause longer timelines than we sometimes prefer :) Not so much a dislike as it is just he reality of a growing business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

DesignFive has been an imperative asset to the growth of our brand over the last two years. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Stephen and team are incredibly responsive and always thinking two steps ahead. From design strategy, long term flexibility and meeting all requirements — the team over-delivers, hits all deadlines and is highly communicative. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I was initially concerned about being halfway around the globe from the team — but it actually ended up not being an issue at all. If anything it's actually a benefit — I always wake up to find assets in my inbox. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

DesignFive has a highly skilled team that can run with minimal or exacting guidance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

DesignFive's involvement in evolving our brand and design system allowed us to scale without having to hire an internal team. Their assistance developing an identity system for both our old and new brands allowed us to move quickly and consistently in order to support revenue growth and brand recognition.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

D5 has assisted our company with many aspects of design and branding, but I've worked with them primarily in static images that support our written blog content, landing pages, and email assets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

D5 is collaborative and timely. They're both useful for when you have something specific in mind and need it executed, and when you have a vague idea and need someone with a better design eye to help you execute. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Typically we have quick turnarounds with them, but there have been times where we've overloaded them to the point that we see work slower than we'd like. I think this is primarily on our fluctuation in needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We've improved the quality and readability of our blog posts significantly by using D5 to build us custom elements. These images often are used by other companies and result in new link backs to our site, and we've seen increased time on page metrics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Design5 has helped us create templates for ongoing work we can recreate ourselves, as well as custom images, infographics, and PDFs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the attention to detail that Steve and his team have. They are truly dedicated to getting the best possible results for their client. He also gives his design feedback and catches things I missed in the brief; they are great to work with no matter what your design experience. They also do all they can to reach

deadlines, and have regular, detailed, communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything. Overall, the level of time it takes to write a brief and give the details is a little work, but it's not much, and that's how you get the best results overall. And, the more you work with them, the less time writing briefs as you can refer to previous projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Beautiful designs that have the same quality as our company's brand and overall marketing. The templates for repeatable work are also great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I've worked with Steve at DesignFive on dozens (if not more) graphic design projects. We've created infographics, storyboards, and other marketing collateral pieces for my customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Working with Steve and his team is always a pleasure. He takes immense pride in the work DesignFive puts out and is incredibly detail oriented. He's patient as well, always willing to make the "one last change" that ends up being four or five last changes. Most of all, though, the design always looks incredible. Whether we're using our own branding or our customer's guidelines, the pieces we deliver are impeccable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside to working with DesignFive is that there is limited resources compared to what we would like them to produce for us. We have so much we want to have DesignFive's hands on, but there are only so many people on the team (and only so many hours in the day). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

DesignFive has really become an extension of our internal design team. They've allowed us to create custom pieces for our customers at an incredible rate. Without Steve and the DesignFive team we would not be able to take on as much business or produce as much for our customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I've worked with D5 on a variety of design projects, including infographics, reports, webpages, motion graphics, and images. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

D5's responsiveness, talent, and breadth of abilities are unparalleled. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Many people and departments at our company leverage D5's services, so there can sometimes be a bit of a backlog in terms of project prioritization. (But this isn't necessarily a bad thing, since everyone wants to use the service!) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Whether you choose to be as thorough as possible with your requirements, or let D5 take the reins in terms of project direction, you won't be disappointed with the results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We outsource much of our design work to D5, freeing us up for other tasks and responsibilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We request creative assets from them. In the past, we've had them create graphics & GIF files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Their response time is great, especially for not operating in the same time zone as us. Steve, is also super helpful. It was the first time I had ever created a GIF file and he walked me through each step! They work with us in our current platforms, so we have an Asana integration where we submit requests and communicate there Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really struggle finding anything, if anything I struggled a bit with figuring out the best etiquette in our Asana integration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Use them they're great & easy to work with! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

DesignFive works with my organization on almost all of our visual creative, but they specifically worked with me to create a narrative slideshow ad for Facebook. It was a great cooperative project and we were able to nail down the base requirements quickly so they could get to work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DesignFive's speed and willingness to work around your needs are my two favorite parts of working with them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes getting a meeting scheduled can be difficult across time zones but this team puts in the effort and their works more than makes up for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We use DesignFive for our social advertising creative as well as more general branding needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

DesignFive has helped us create custom creative for all our email/social/etc. assets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They are very good at understanding the feel of a company. We recently rebranded and both their designs before and after the rebrand always felt like our vibe. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think they do it because they have so many clients but the folder convention they use is fairly confusing. Sometimes even if there is just one iteration of a project you have to drill down into 8 different folders to get to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

They made our creative assets better and are easy to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

DesignFive creates new content for our company constantly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DesignFive keeps a very open line of communication with our company. They set a timeline for our requests, and keep to them - sometimes even having content ready earlier than expected. They are very knowledgeable in design parameters and pay attention to minor details. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only difficulty of working with them, is the difference in time zones. However, they ensure to maintain all contacts timely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Various deliverables for our customers and sales collateral Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Steve, our main contact at DesignFive, is communicative and prompt. He is transparent with his team's bandwidth and sets reasonable and clear expectations. I also like that they are in a different time zone from us - it helps when we need to "overnight" some projects or requests. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at the moment. As stated above, I am happy with their responsiveness and work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I have worked with DesignFive on various projects that I need a complex and in-depth image for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DesignFive takes direction extremely well and all of the images they have given me have been exactly what I was envisioning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the timezone difference can make communication difficult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

They are solving the problem of me not being nearly as good with design programs and they build-out the graphics that are much more detail-oriented than I ever could. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Digital use content & infographics, digital ads, print content, and storytelling with data graphics. We would handle ideation and scoping internally for these items and utilized Design5 for creative confirmation / ideation and then execution of the deliverables. We used the deliverables as direct sale items to our own customers as well as content for our own product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The service. Design5 delivers on the type of service that is unfortunately fading fast in our current culture. They are professional, prompt, creative, intelligent, and experts in their area of expertise and they do it all while being affordable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Time-zone differences based on location can cause some difficulty when looking to find meeting times. But on every single engagement this has been mitigated by their flexibility, efficiency in digital communications, and commitment to deadlines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Be clear in your goals and vision, but flexible to allow creativity from the team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
