In this age of continuous content, creative agencies are faced with improving their production environments to meet increasing client demands while remaining competitive. With both budgets and timelines shrinking, agencies need to be as efficient as possible to maintain quality and creativity without falling behind. HAKUHODO i-studio, the digital creative agency for Hakuhodo DY Group in Japan, recognized that it needed to evolve, but many solutions that help make life simpler and more efficient for design teams can unfortunately put client data at risk.
Data security practices are more than just a financial concern. HAKUHODO i-studio often works with proprietary information and must adhere to the strict security regulations of its parent company. So when Adobe gave the agency the opportunity to pilot Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise with managed services, it was a no brainer. The mobile workflows and cloud services gave designers more freedom and helped them work together on projects with ease, while the single tenant server hosted behind a firewall helps keep client content and assets more secure.
Creative directors assemble Creative Cloud Libraries for each project, making it easier for designers to access the correct assets, helping result in fewer errors and less rework. Since starting to use Creative Cloud for enterprise, HAKUHODO i-studio has achieved its goal of eliminating many of the roadblocks that interrupt design workflows. The creative team can collaborate more easily, increase project turnaround times, and create more of the web content and digital assets that contribute to client success.
“Using managed services, we can use Adobe Creative Cloud to its fullest,” says Tsuyoshi Kasuya, Corporate Planning Department, HAKUHODO i-studio Inc. “We’re also looking forward to seeing how our creative work will change with the implementation of the stock photo service, Adobe Stock Enterprise.”
