Overall Experience
We have been working with Black Bear since the end of June 2020 and they have been extremely helpful with our website re-design and in creating sales/marketing content for our tech startup. We are so happy with how the site turned out! Samantha, our Project Manager, was very organized and helped us stick to our accelerated 60-day timeline to create our new website using our existing content/resources. Our Content Writer, Kevin, helped us to re-phrase our existing verbiage for a more web-friendly format, and Jessica helped us find the right graphic design elements to communicate our message effectively. Thank you Black Bear Design for all of your help!!

Overall Experience
They were very responsive when we were re-designing our logo. They provided us several different variations which I think was a bit overwhelming for them, but they were extremely patient with us.

Overall Experience
Great working with Black Bear and Samantha Hardwick! As customers, Samantha very patient as the process took us a long time to come to conclusion. Samantha had great personality, very knowledgeable, and was able to 'hand hold' us at the company as we worked on a website redesign! Would recommend them to all and will use them again in the future.

Overall Experience
We have used Black Bear for several years to manage most of the digital aspects of our business. They have always been responsive to our needs and work very hard to understand the clients that we are looking for while advertising. Not only have they understood what we look for in our clients, but they have very successfully driven qualified clients to us. The quality of work is outstanding and until our experience with Black Bear, we were not sure if digital advertising / marketing was really able to drive business.

It was an absolute pleasure working with the Black Bear team. Everyone we interfaced with was knowledgeable, responsive, and an overall delight. Leadership stayed connected to keep an eye on progress and support the project, but left it us in the very capable hands of the team including Tony, Marc, and Tracy. Each listened to our needs and opinions and challenged us when necessary by providing wisdom and insight on new technologies and/or approaches to web design. It would be impossible to pick an MVP because each of them over delivered on their respective responsibilities and together built us a wonderful website we are proud to provide to our fans.
