Success stories

A full design service to fuel MetaMap’s growth

MetaMap needed a distinct visual language and a scalable design system for their new website. We assembled a team of 6 specialists for that purpose, and ended up designing landing pages, sales presentations and social media campaigns like there's no tomorrow. Oh, and we also crafted the pitch deck with which MetaMap raised a $70M series B.

Now let’s talk
about you!

What do you want to accomplish? How can we help you?

Case studies

Faq

How is team&tonic different to traditional design agencies?
  1. Instead of sales reps and account managers, we have design strategists. Actual senior designers who will help raise all the important questions to suggest a path forward that meet your objectives and work with whoever is needed to deliver on time and on budget.
  2. Our network includes designers that specialise in UX/UI, Web, Graphic, Motion and Brand Design, as well as User Researchers, Product Managers and Copywriters. Furthermore, we can match you with people that have experience working in your industry and in companies at your same growth stage. Finally, we can tare to your time zone and language preferences. We achieve this by complementing our network of trusted designers (that we have worked with before) with an extensive database of people that have applied to work with us
  3. Unlike with other agencies, you can start with as little as a 1 hour consultation and scale to an entire multidisciplinary team if and when needed.
What do you design?

Our focus is on Websites, apps and branding, but we also regularly help our clients with sales and marketing collateral, as well as pitch decks to raise funds.

Do you do User Research?

Yes. In fact, in most cases we recommend including User Research as part of the design process. We’re not dogmatic though, it all depends on your priorities and budget.

Can you help me design my pitch deck to raise funds?

Yes. We’ve helped multiple clients craft both the narrative and visual storytelling for their pitch decks. We helped MetaMap raise a $70M series B by defining the narrative and design of their pitch deck.

How does the hiring process look like?
  1. You hop on a call with a designer to discuss your goals and challenges, as well as your budget and time constraints.
  2. We’ll get back to you within a week with a proposal that includes a roadmap and the proposed team (it can be just 1 person). You get each candidate’s LinkedIn profile, portfolio, intro video, and design challenge, as well as our assessment of their skills and personality.
  3. We’ll get the ball rolling as soon as we agree on a roadmap and team. You may end or pause the collaboration at any time.
How much time does it take to start a project or hire a designer?

We mostly provide a proposal within a week, but depending on your the complexity of your situation it can take up to 3 weeks. Schedule a call so we can provide an estimate for your case.

Can I hire for project-based work?

Yes, you can hire our talent per day or per week. We’ll suggest and advise  on which profiles are the most appropriate for your project.

Can I hire full-time through team&tonic?

Yes, we can help you hire both freelance or in-house.

Can I hire for any experience level?

Yes, our network includes talented juniors, mid-levels and seniors. In case of hiring a team, a combination of experience levels is usually advised in order to maximise efficiency.

I don’t want remote workers, can you find people to work from my office?

Yes, we can filter candidates that live near your office and those willing to relocate in your area.

Where is your network based? In what regions can you recruit?

We can recruit anywhere in the world and adapt to your timezone and language requirements. However, the larger chunk of our network  is based in Latin America and speak perfect English, which is ideal for US-based clients.

I don’t want to sign a classic employment contract, do you have a solution for that?

When hiring through us, you can either sign a classic contract to employ the person or make an agreement through our company. In the latter case, if you decide to compensate the person through us, you won’t have to worry about taxes, benefits, vacation time, termination costs, etc. We’ll take care of everything for as long as you want and you can decide to stop the agreement with a notice period of 1 week.

I don’t want to manage people, can you do that for me?

Yes, you can hire a design strategist o project manager through us as well, and they will ensure work is moving at the right pace and in the right direction without needing any of your time. However, some degree of  feedback from internal stakeholders is always useful.
