World's Leading Swim Coaching Company Gets Design Manipulation Services from Flatworld
The client is a multi-national swimming coaching company based in Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands. The client teaches parents how to train toddlers and babies to swim. They employ underwater photography more than any of their competitors and have been endorsed by Swim England (the national governing body for swimming). For 25 years, the client has used the best-trained swimming coaches - hiring only teachers who received Swim England's highest teaching credential for children less than 5 years old.
Client Requirements and Challenges
The client needed an outsourcing partner to manipulate images taken during an end-of-term photoshoot (usually when babies are 3-9 months old). The photo event often includes a dipographer who is specially trained to swim a baby into position for photos taken by a professional photographer in the client's underwater studio. Photos typically include the family - images are given to parents and also used to showcase coaching methods to prospective customers. Design manipulation requirements included the baby, water, and background.
The project involved this primary challenge for FWS -
- Manipulation involving limbs and background water required a high level of detail
The Flatworld Solutions creative design and photo editing specialists developed this solution -
- Due to the complexity of the full project, Flatworld Solutions (FWS) suggested an initial free trial involving 36 images. The team for the trial portion included two photo design and editing specialists and a quality analyst. The successful trial (including quality checks) was completed within a week
- Based on trial results, the client visited the FWS offices in India and signed a contract for a monthly volume of 45,000 images
- During both the trial phase and full-time project, editing of individual images required varying manipulation levels
This project demonstrates how outsourcing results can vary significantly from one provider to another. In this case, the client observed that the Flatworld Solutions team outperformed previous partners in terms of precision manipulation and cost-effective project pricing. The on-site visit also resulted in a positive assessment of the FWS facility and infrastructure.
