While it’s not unique to have a related production company as an agency, the dynamic between Harbr and our sister company Oxen Made definitely is. Between taking separate clients and cutting cross company wait time in half, having a separate production company is where it’s at. Check out a few ways Harbr Co. and Oxen Made are a perfect match.
“One brief with team members from both Harbr and Oxen makes things flow just a little bit easier.”
The discovery phase for any client can be a hefty portion of any project. Feeling them out, gathering info and ideas, and nailing down strategy can take a while. The whole process for any client is expedited when we’re able to pull in Oxen Made for all of the production needs. One brief with team members from both Harbr and Oxen makes things flow just a little bit easier. If there is ever a need to pass a project, everyone is already on the same page, so the transition is seamless. Not to mention the fact that both companies can work on the same client at the same time, one for design and development work, and the other for production.
Things can get a little awkward when agencies hire other agencies. Thankfully, a separate production company solves that problem. Oxen Made being it’s own entity, the production team has free reigns over any and all outside production work separate from Harbr Co. Both collaborative work and work that we keep separate is expedited with teams who are willing to step in to help wherever possible.
