Evaluation Criteria: Creative Agencies
Needs Analysis
Needs Analysis
During our evaluation of creative agencies our research team investigates the process that vendors have in onboarding a client or identifying their needs. It is important for a creative agency to understanding the branding requirements, public communication strategy, and the creative needs of their client before they begin the process of designing and producing different creatives.
Design Standards
Design Standards
Our analysis of creative agencies involves a look at the different design standards and processes put into place to ensure creative quality. Each vendor has their own approach into creating different design elements and ensuring that those elements have a consistent quality to them. We analyze how designs are being approved both internally and by the client for their intended use.
Customer Involvement
Customer Involvement
The level of involvement a client has in the design process is an important element of the analysis. Different clients will want to have a different level of involvement and the way the creative agencies enable that is an important part of the creative process. We analyze whether the creative agency requires the direction of their client or if they are able to accommodate it if the client wants it.
Stock Quality
Stock Quality
Different creative agencies will source their stock imagery from different channels. During our analyze we compare how different creative agencies use stock imagery, where they source it from, and whether or not they are capable of creating their own unique imagery to be used in creatives. Does the agency have the ability to create unique imagery using their own in-house resources?
Efficiency
Efficiency
Our benchmarking of different creative agencies also involves a look into how efficient their internal processes are. How long does it take the agency to create their first draft of any given creative? How much time does it take for a design to get approved, for them to produce the final touches, and for them to deliver the creative to be used in a marketing campaign or a print?
