Partnership & Multi-Agency Projects
20+ years littering the web with award-winning sites has taught us a few things.
While we love flying solo and building websites or digital strategy for major organizations across the planet, we’re also grateful to have built dozens and dozens of partnerships for co-creating opportunities! In fact, sometimes it opens up the paradigm with which we see every pixel in a whole new light.
Some of the largest projects we’ve done in fact have either been the offshoot of needing a hand through some of our phenomenal partners (The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation being one). When you trust another company to handle a few high-end pieces of a project, it builds strength and trust. We wouldn’t be where we are today without an entire army of partners we rely upon from time to time for some of their ultra-talent.
Benefits of cooperating with another agency for your digital projects run rampant!
North Studio is 1st and foremost creative, flexible, and adaptable. We’ve opened our minds to change and growth opportunities that allow us to bust through our ol’ crab shell in search of change, excitement, and staying ahead of the curve. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without learning what everyone else out there is doing, taking the best of the best, and shedding the dead-weight.
More Work Means Everyone’s Happy
While we’re notorious for winning projects with very high degrees of complexities (it took us a long time for us to get to this point), we’re even at the point of giving some of our business to other agencies we feel have a stronger advantage with a particular skill than us, and taking a slight back-seat to the project. We always say, “if the shoe don’t fit”, or “don’t try to cram a round peg into a square hole.” This is to say that there are lots of agencies out there that will take any work. This is not us.
Taking Advantage of Strengths
Web has become an art AND a science, with a meticulous amount of precision. Some of our largest projects spanning years of work almost feels like herding 1,000 3-yr old kids and teaching them all how to play the telephone game cohesively… all while getting the right answer at the end. Because of the number of skill sets that run throughout the digital industry, it’s nearly impossible to cover every single one of them in-house. This is why we have our toolkit of partners we lean on for very specific skill sets when the time comes. It’s best to surround yourself with loads of these high-impact, rare skillset types for when you need them to collaborate with you on your projects.
