If there's one thing we've learned about this business, it is that every job is different. What works for a Fortune 500 company usually doesn't jive with a restaurant down the street. We understand this, which is why we custom tailor our process to fit your specific needs. Sometimes it just isn't practical (or cost effective) to drag you through a rigid, predetermined, 10 step process if all you need is a blog. Likewise, we avoid jumping into larger projects without following the discovery process with you to make sure we can accurately understand and manage expectations.
It's no secret, we're not a big agency. Instead we focus on producing big results by building the best possible team for each project. With over 14 years in the game, we have built a network of amazingly talented people. Being able to adapt to your requirements on a per project basis allows us (and you) to fully leverage this network. We engage every project with a well defined goal and a transparent approach to pricing.
Having worked with City Zen several times now since 2006, I know first hand I can expect my needs to be met, even surpassed, every time.
