Ruffneck Scarves is a US-based company that designs and manufactures soccer-style scarves, which are created not only for various sport clubs and teams but also for schools, companies, and other organizations.
On May 1, 2007, we were contacted by Ruffneck's General Manager who asked us if it would be possible for us to design scarves on a per project basis. The discussions with Jeff were quick and productive. He gave us a sample project to design blue 'Yankee Hater' scarves. Two days after our first contact, we sent him the sample designs (below). That same day, we signed an agreement and we now design scarves for the company on a per project basis. Every time Jeff needs a new scarf design, he simply directly contacts his graphic designer at MicroSourcing and provides the project details. We guarantee Jeff his new designs within 48 hours and bill on a monthly basis for the days his designer worked on the project.
Through MicroSourcing, Jeff has found the flexible and low-cost solution he was looking for. He does not have to retain his own full-time graphic designer in the US or use expensive design agencies. He has no fixed costs and can budget the use of his MicroSourcing designer to the penny.
Ruffneck Scarves is the ultimate example of 'Micro Outsourcing' and our ability to deliver custom solutions. Even though this project did not fall within our standard Staff Leasing solutions, we discussed the possibilities with Jeff, did the math, and found a way to provide the services he was looking for.
