Compare Us to Our Competitors

Arizona IdeaWorks was born out of a clear “need” for a better solution than what traditional design consultancies could offer. Specifically, we’ve rewritten the business model in order to streamline the design process. At the same time, we provide a caliber of service once offered only to deep-pocket corporations. Here are just a few advantages of using us:

Other Firms

Some firms employ 1-2 experienced designers to oversee the efforts of many younger, entry-level designers. This allows them to charge higher rates while maintaining lower payroll expenditures.

At Arizona IdeaWorks

Comparatively, we cherry-pick and network with design professionals who have been in the industry at least 10 years. This helps to ensure that important design decisions are never made by someone still learning the ropes.

Comp-Cherry

Other Firms

Some design firms isolate their customers from their manufacturers. This “turn-key” strategy allows them to silently turn a significant profit from every order you place, both now and in the future.

At Arizona IdeaWorks

We’re happy to let YOU interface with our favorite factories. This means you’ll see a cost savings while also maintaining free control to negotiate your own terms with the supplier of your choice.

Comp-Mid

Other Firms

Some firms maintain large facilities designed to induce trust from new prospects through apparent past success. This added overhead is often offset by higher rates and fewer “behind the curtain” resources for the staff.

At Arizona IdeaWorks

Robust video collaboration and desktop-sharing tools allow our designers to work remotely. This results in significantly lower overhead while also giving our designers the tools they need to work efficiently.

Comp-trim

Other Firms

Some design firms maintain a secretive bubble around themselves. In so doing, they block involvement of any outside specialists in favor of letting their in-house staff “learn as they go”.

At Arizona IdeaWorks

On the other hand, we have partnerships with specialists in the industry. We reach out to them, for instance, whenever a project is in need of a skill set we cannot provide.  This partnership ensures fewer revisions and quicker turn-around.

Comp-Bubble

Other Firms

Some design firms strategically position intermediaries between designers and clients. For example, you may hear the terms “Directors” or “Account Reps”. In so doing, they obscure staff reassignments and/or filter communication through a single point contact or salesman.

At Arizona IdeaWorks

In contrast, we believe that a direct line of communication is the only way the designer can truly understand the needs of the client. Therefore, we work to maintain an open channel, assuring the most efficient design cycle.
