"I worked with many product and design people in the past, but never with folks as professional and delivery oriented like Mor and Daniel. Being a startup, getting the product done right, but at the same time at great speed, often causes conflict between the product/design teams and the CEO. But not with PolarHedgehog. These guys are able to churn out high quality work with great speed. They were never the bottleneck. PolarHedgehog designed our website from scratch, including the thorough work of creating design guidelines, choosing typefaces, color scheme, defining the main conversion objectives, refining messaging and more. The combination of product and design skills are the unique factor that keeps things focused on the business."
