Client Review on Clutch

The client submitted this review online. 

I’m the president of Hudson Advisors LLC, a new consulting firm focused on arts and culture philanthropic consulting. We mainly work with institutions to help them build or expand their fundraising capacities. Still, we also advise individual philanthropists seeking to make an impact in the arts and culture field.

Given that ours is a new firm, I wanted to launch a website and a social media presence.

Flamingo Agency has designed a website for me. Initially, we engaged in some thoughtful conversations about my goals with this website, which helped us outline the three main objectives of the project. Additionally, we had a conversation about the look and feel that I wanted on the site, during which I got very specific about my idea.

During the development, I was in charge of writing the copy. Chris (Founder) took that copy and the input I provided during the discovery process and turned them into a beautiful website. He also implemented on-site SEO during this process.

We’ve already finished the website, but we haven’t launched it. Now, Flamingo Agency is going to be in charge of designing some business cards for me, as well as some imagery that I’ll use for my initial social media posts and giclee prints.

I work directly with Chris.

When I was looking for a partner, I reached out to various colleagues and asked them for their recommendations. Still, I also did my own Google search for the best web design firms in Chicago, and Flamingo Agency was one of them.

I looked at the firms I found, as well as at their past projects, and I narrowed them down to three. I reached out to these firms and some of the other firms that were recommended to me. Still, Flamingo Agency’s work and proposal stood out from the rest.

During one of our early email exchanges, Chris asked me what did I like and dislike about certain websites I had searched. No other agency asked me these kinds of questions, which made me realize that Chris was very interested in my opinion — it really impressed me.

I first engaged with Flamingo Agency in October 2021, but the work started in April 2022. Starting the project was lengthy because I was fortunate enough to secure some early clients, who kept me happily distracted with work from focusing on my web presence. Still, our engagement is ongoing.

Flamingo Agency’s work quality is fantastic, and it has impacted my business very positively. I had a standard for what I wanted, and Flamingo Agency still exceeded it. They were able to take my vision and interpret what I wanted really well. There are certain aspects of the site that I love through which Chris’ creativity came shining. Overall, they’ve been an ideal partner for me.

Flamingo Agency has performed very well. While we were doing changes and tweaks to the site during the development process, Chris was a good listener and presented me with various options.

Flamingo Agency has also been very flexible regarding our meetings. On occasions, I’ve had to push meetings backward or forward, and they’ve always been very understanding. We communicate via phone and email.

Flamingo Agency excels at listening to their clients and understanding their vision. Additionally, they’re very creative and nimble.

No, they’re a real delight to work with.

Be honest and open in your conversation with Flamingo Agency; they respond very well to that.

" Chris Granat and the Flamingo Agency were outstanding partners in developing my firm's website. A true creative and a keen listener, Chris understood and executed all of the objectives of his brief ~ And then exceeded them. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and couldn't recommend Chris and Flamingo more highly. "
