"Dare to work differently."
Fat, Slow & Expensive
Look, we all know there are hundreds of display companies out there, and they all say the same thing: "We’re the leaders in innovation. We have lots of retail oriented results based on shopper marketing insights and blah, blah blah."
You get the idea. But here’s the skinny. The majority of those guys have 1 ugly secret:
The cost of overhead and inefficiency for all this fluff will always get passed on to the client.
On top of that, some of these guys are crippled under their own weight, making it impossible for them to react quickly and efficiently, using disjointed remote resources that cannot effectively work together, hit the mark, or the budget.
Nothing in this world is free
That old adage grandma told you is a universal truth: someone somewhere is paying for it, whether they know it or not. Yet time and time again, display manufacturers entice clients with “free” creative.
This has become somewhat of a standard. Sure, you can get a few concepts without spending a penny, but the minute that job becomes an order, you will be paying for that creative. And considering that these companies typically get about 20% hit rate on concepts, not to mention all that “Shopper Marketing Insight” that they pull in, you’ll also be paying for the creative that the last client decided not to have produced.
You know it’s true, or that big display company could not survive. Their over inflated markup is a direct result of the “free” creative that gets dangled in front of you with the hopes of getting that production job.
Dare to look behind the curtain
Our staff of artists, engineers and makers are some of the best in the industry. In fact, if you haven’t guessed it, we're some of the top creative players within the large companies that have Dared to step out, because we knew there was a better way.
Giving away work is not only impractical, but bad business. That’s what makes the Dare Devil model different. You pay for what you need – be it a few concepts, a prototype, or a full production run. Simple eh? You pay for your stuff, not a bunch of cost from the 80% of failed creative that came along before you.
Once the green light has been given on a production run, we fabricate and build internally, or in some cases, source through our network of manufacturers to get the most competitive price available on the market. We manage every step of the production, ensuring everything runs smoothly.
A Better Model
Look, as a design-centric packaging & display agency, we’d love to tell you all about how creative and innovative our work is. But let’s be honest, when it comes down to it, time and price are typically the top-of-mind priorities.
This is where we can help. We are a lean, multi-disciplined group that dares to work differently. The inefficiencies, stifled creativity, tremendous costs, and slow turn time of the massive packaging conglomerates motivated us to create a better model. One that allows us to turn projects quickly while offering the most aggressive pricing.
How? Because with Dare Devil, you get exactly what you pay for.
