From the horse’s mouth…

Most people approach consultants with their BS filters turned up. Or at least they should. Which means, although we’ve tried not to sugar-coat our site, we understand that simply taking our word at face value is asking a lot. So, here are actual endorsements from some of our clients.

Adam Touni, Broker Associate/Attorney, Zane, Menlo Park CA

ADAM-112“Zane had long been a respected name in Palo Alto real estate. But with the Peninsula market on fire, we wanted to make our image and especially our website more relevant and engaging. We saw what a positive change One Degree had done for another company and we wanted the same. After some research, they came back with a very cool new brand image that suited exactly who we are and where we want to go. The new logo, website and marketing really get noticed…the first week we launched the new brand materials, we received great feedback at our agent tours and open houses. Since then, we’ve received tremendous feedback from clients — past, present and prospective. Best of all, the new yard signs designed for our open houses help us drive maximum traffic for our sellers. We’re totally satisfied with the new work. In fact, we’re already planning to do more.”

Troy Turvy, Partner, Mediterraneo Design Build, Menlo Park CA

TROY-112“Does a 6 month backlog of construction projects during one of the deepest recessions of all time mean you are doing something right? One Degree dissected our company from the inside out and told us who we were from every possible perspective. They then created a marketing and branding strategy that showed us how to appeal to the architects, homeowners, and designers that we always dreamed of working with. One Degree didn’t just help us to re-invent our company, they raised the bar and coaxed us to rise up and over it. We would not be where we are today without the vision and intellect they bring to the table.”

Eric Fisk, CEO, Fisk Alloy, Hawthorne NJ

ERIC-56“Fisk Alloy is a true niche manufacturer producing highly specialized finish wire products for a highly specialized, but global market. Given this specialization, our historical sales and marketing effort has been the shoe leather strategy, and while we have over the years engaged marketing consultants and ad agencies they never really tried to change our behavior or thinking. In contrast, One Degree worked hard to get inside our “box” and then quickly started to think outside it in ways that are truly original, not only for this business but for our industry as a whole. The One Degree team has capabilities, commitment and an adherence to high quality that all sum to create real impact and real value. They are a class act and I would highly recommend them to any organization, business or otherwise.”

Jane McConnell, Property Owner, Casa Querencia, Punta de Mita Mexico

JANE-112“One Degree worked with us to create a website for our luxury rental property in Mexico. Our existing website simply showed static photos of the house. One Degree, on the other hand, sold us on the idea of communicating the experience of staying there. That’s exactly what they were able to accomplish, through artistic and inviting photos and video (which they shot themselves) in an interactive and dynamic format. Now prospective guests can start their vacation the minute they click on the website, and get a real preview of their experience. I feel it’s worth noting that the first week the site was live we received a lead that converted into a sale.”

Brian Emery, CEO, Mediterraneo Design Build, Menlo Park CA

Dr Paul Turek, Executive Director, The Turek Clinic, San Francisco and Los Angeles CA

PAUL-56“After seeing the strategic insight and creative taste that One Degree brought to another client, we immediately short-listed them for our new business venture. After interviewing several firms, we committed to working with them because we found they were the most straight-forward. We sensed we would get both more streamlined and more senior attention from them than the other firms…and we have. We have been consistently impressed with the caliber of logo and web design from One Degree.”

Andrea Herrera, VP Marketing, Senturus, Burlingame CA

ANDREA-112“We are incredibly pleased with the outcome of our re-branding and website engagement. The look is fabulous. Professional, sleek, confidence-inspiring, unique, beautiful. Your strategic guidance will be felt for years. You have taken our business up many notches. This website is head and shoulders better than what we had or what we would have gotten without One Degree, and it has really improved our lead generation and development process. We are already receiving great feedback at industry events. Thank you, thank you!”

Medea Bern, Executive Director, Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance, San Francisco CA

MEDEA-112“I had the pleasure of working with this team as Director of Hillsborough Schools Foundation’s Concours d’Elegance. Our goal was to modernize a 52-year old classic car show with an entirely new identity and brand personality to better compete with our rivals, the Pebble Beach and Palo Alto Concours. Mike Sperry designed a complete and elegant identity system that worked beautifully not just for the 52nd Show, but has become the foundation for a yearly update. In addition, their team provided seamless project management, cost-effective production, and aggressive media negotiations.”

Eliza Gibson, Project Manager, Clinic by the Bay, San Francisco CA

ELIZA-56“We hired One Degree on the recommendation of one of our Board members who raved about the strategy and web design they had done to launch his business. We worked directly with the principals which allowed them to capture a brand and web experience that perfectly reflects our mission, as well as the sensibility of the community we serve. One Degree was passionate about bringing us innovative ideas to improve our search results, and they were easy and flexible to work with. We couldn’t have been more satisfied. We’re looking forward to expanding our engagement with them as our organization grows.”
