I am so impressed by 55 KNOTS. The quality of their graphic design work is fantastic, especially given the cost is so affordable. Their online platform is easy to use, and the team has always been so helpful and responsive.

Great service, I have briefed in loads of different types of designs briefs, from graphic design and branding, to motion and web design. Great communication, as a designer myself, it has been great for them to relieve me of some of my workload and bring design jobs to life that I don’t have time for. Thank 55 KNOTS team 🙂

I’ve hunted for years for an on-demand creative team like this and used every one of them on the planet. 55 Knots are the best. Not only is the quality of work outstanding, but the communication from the entire team is what gives me peace of mind that we’re in good hands. We’ll continue to work with 55 KNOTS

The team at 55 Knots are well resourced to handle my creative needs. They always show great professionalism, and are highly responsive around content briefs and any amendments requested.

Their output is of a consistently high standard, and the team are happy to go above and beyond to help out with some more ad hoc requests when needed. Special shout out to Charles who has pulled together some great content for us in the past and is an absolute breeze to work with.

I recently had the pleasure of working with 55 Knots, who provided me with a virtual account manager. I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the entire hiring process, onboarding with the team, working with Jasmine, and the quality of the hire.

Firstly, I was impressed with the hiring process. The team at 55 Knots took the time to understand my business needs and requirements, ensuring that they found a virtual account manager who would be a good fit for my company. They were responsive, helpful, and professional throughout the process, which made it a stress-free experience for me.

The onboarding process with the 55 Knots team was also excellent. They were thorough in explaining their processes, tools, and expectations, and made sure that I had everything I needed to work with my virtual account manager smoothly.

Speaking of my virtual account manager, Jasmine was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was knowledgeable, professional, and proactive in her approach to managing my account. I felt that she genuinely cared about my business, and she went above and beyond to make sure that my needs were met.

Finally, I was impressed with the quality of the hire provided by 55 Knots. Jasmine was a perfect fit for my company, and I could not have asked for a better virtual account manager. Her expertise and work ethic were outstanding, and I am grateful to 55 Knots for finding her for me.

Overall, I highly recommend 55 Knots to anyone who is looking for a virtual account manager or any other virtual staffing services. Their hiring process, onboarding, and team management are top-notch, and they truly care about their clients’ success. Thank you, 55 Knots, for the excellent service!

Not to mention working with the likes of cool people like Ben is a true treat!

Pilgrim Sailing signed up to the 55 Knots subscription in January 2020 and continues to be wowed by the work produced by 55 Knots.

This is the first time our small business has outsourced anything and we have not looked back.

The designs we receive, we could never dream of creating ourselves. Everything looks so professional and has an creative edge to it, which amazes us each time we receive a new piece.

Highly Recommended.

Ben, Kurt and the team were exceptional in finding me a quality staff member for my growing business. They did all the hard work and ensured we found the best candidates for the role. Hazel has joined my team a few months ago and i couldn’t be happier!

I will definitely utilise their services again as my business continues to grow. I felt safe, supported and i know i could not have got the same outcome if not for them

Aaron Fuda

Director, Fuda Finance

I had been struggling to find the right talent for my company, and decided to try using the services of 55Knots. I was impressed from the very start by the professionalism and responsiveness of their team. They listened carefully to my needs and provided me with multiple options to choose from and screened candidates and did the design tests.

The team was in constant communication with me, updating me on their progress and any issues that arose and were quick to find more candidates for our project if any didn’t seem suitable.

Overall, I have had a great experience working with 55Knots and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional and high-quality services. If you’re struggling to find the right talent, give 55Knots a try – you won’t be disappointed!
