At that time we were so busy with other projects that we could not fly to HCMC to meet up with Skunkworks, so Thao Nguyen and Quynh Anh (Project Manager at the time) flew to Hanoi to meet us. The friendly meeting took place in an outdoor tea shop/trà chanh (The ladies recommended it because they love this culture in Hanoi). After a discussion we all agreed to work and exchange information online. This method worked out really well because we were responsive, professional, and we were able to deliver everything we promised to Skunkworks.
We have never done mobile UI design before. But that challenge has brought a lot of new inspiration for our team. With prior UX experience and the ability to learn new skills and knowledge quickly by our designers, it did not take long for us to be right on track. In addition to that, the trust and support from Skunkworks (cool guys like Tien Nguyen and Hieu Hua, etc.) helped us a lot when we had problem implementing the designs.
In 3 months we completed our part and Skunkworks brought it in-house for their full development cycle. With a lot of design concepts and revisions, we have helped Skunkworks to decide what’s best for their application UI.
We were very impressed with the environment full of talented people like Skunkworks, and always hoped for the opportunity to work with them again. And we did not have to wait for too long. Shortly after we finished with the UI design project, we received an email from Spenser (Head of Marketing), wanting us to produce a 2D animation clip for Skunkworks marketing campaigns. With the cool experience from our last participation,we are glad to be part of their team again. And there we started one of our most favorite animation project with Skunkworks’s excellent script. The process was pretty smooth with the enthusiasm and the ability to generalize ideas from Spenser, and the product was really cool! (you can view the completed video here).
We want to wish Skunkworks all the best with their cool product. And we will always be ready for any opportunities to partner with Skunkworks and those who work there in the future!
