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.
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.
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!
