The Challenge

Before partnering with GraphicsZoo, The D² Group faced several creative challenges that impacted their business operations and core competencies:

Creative Challenges:

Limited Design Talent Pool: The companzy had a restricted number of designers, hindering their ability to take on multiple or complex design projects simultaneously.

Pace of Project Delivery: Due to the limited design resources, project turnaround times were slower, affecting their ability to meet client deadlines efficiently.

Quality and Variety of Designs: While they had talented designers, the limited team size restricted the diversity and creativity of design outputs, essential for catering to a wide range of client preferences.

Scaling Limitations: The restricted design capacity hindered their ability to scale up operations and accept more contracts, especially those requiring extensive or specialized design work.
These creative challenges had a significant impact on The D² Group's ability to deliver their core competencies and expertise, affecting their brand strategy development, communication enhancement, and overall reputation. Financially, they experienced revenue fluctuations, missed opportunities, and potential issues with client retention and acquisition.
