Areas of Expertise
BASIC/DEPT®, Former Director of Operations
Academy has been an invaluable partner to us. Any talent we’ve worked with has shown a deep understanding of digital experiences. They’re able to seamlessly integrate with our team and meet the level of craft that we hold ourselves accountable to. We’re set up to meet our budgets and timelines while exceeding expectations.
Wish, Former VP of Design
I have worked with Academy for about a year and I can say without any hesitation that I can trust their team to bring us great talent. If I start a company - I will reach out to them first - because they are not only professional but also patient, humble, open to feedback, gave me amazing advice, inspired my designers and my managers within a short time. Lastly, even if there is a hiccup, the Academy team always has a solution and is extremely flexible. This is essential for any team to have a plan a, b or c when you work with an agency to get you the right talent. And Academy always does!
Twill (Fomerly Happify), Business Operations & Strategy Senior Manager
Academy has made the otherwise stressful and time-consuming task of staffing so easy. They're always extremely quick to respond to our (often last minute) needs and we can always be confident knowing they provide high-quality talent every time.
Output, VP of People
Output has worked with the Academy team for a number of years. As a small but quickly growing company, we needed a partner embedded in the design community, whose reach was vast, and someone who could quickly assess our team needs and know where to turn for talent. Academy has been that partner to us. A good portion of our Design team at Output is a result of the work that Academy did sourcing, screening and presenting us with viable candidates. We now have a successful design team that we are proud of and know that we wouldn't have them if it weren't for Adam and the Academy team.
