We had two tasks: attract investments and improve marketing funnel. We developed a pitch deck that helped to attract pre-seed investments and created marketing design templates that we outsourced.

After the business model changed, we decided to clean up the visual style to increase the speed of design iterations.

At the peak, it was a 34% conversion rate increase.
