The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize, empathize, synthesize, and glean insights that enable him or her to ‘make the invisible visible.

The Benefits of Collaborating

What Businesses Need & Want
Pursuing targeted solutions for your business starts with knowing what challenges you're facing. As most businesses want to generate more quality leads, grow a successful team, create a culture that engages people and builds a positive reputation, your marketing approach needs to be strategic, outlining your goals and challenges, and develop the right combination of tactics and metrics to achieve the success you seek. Investing in a designer to assist you with this, is money well spent.
If your aims and goals are to generate more sales leads, then consider your prospective clients in two ways; those who know they need your products or services to solve their problem, and those who may not even know they have a problem, let alone that you have the perfect solution for them. Each have the potential to be your best customer, but each needs a different approach. For attracting customers who are actively seeking your product, ranking well with the terms they’re searching for to find you, so they get to your website and see what you have to offer over the competition, is vital. For the other kind, those who haven’t discovered your solution yet, your marketing strategy involves finding them and getting in front of them to let them know you have what they didn’t even know they needed. Either way, once you get them to your website, you need to give them answers quickly and make it easy for them to reach out, converting them into a viable lead for you to pursue.
Therefore, do all the elements of your brand speak with a unified voice? It's a crucial aspect in your brand strategy and corporate identity that resonates with your clientele and is clearly recognizable to the general public. It makes it easier to achieve your business objectives by creating a visual presence in the marketplace, using your brand and trademarks as cornerstones. There may be elements of your brand that are clearly communicated, and therefore, may not need to change, but is there consistency across the board for your brand to have the desired impact? A designer can make a world of difference when trying to achieve this goal.

We embrace change (but not for change’s sake), always looking for effective alternatives and new ideas, to bring a project to its fruition.

Artists can have greater access to reality; they can see patterns and details and connections that other people, distracted by the blur of life, might miss. Just sharing that truth can be a very powerful thing.
Your logo is a visual representation of your brand’s message and your company’s value proposition. It exists to communicate what your brand represents by providing an emotional shortcut to remind people of all the benefits of your business’s products and services. A logo will (should) appear on every promotional piece your company produces, including your business card, website and the signage at your location, making a definitive statement about what you do.
If you read our reference page, you will now know that a logo is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol commonly used by commercial enterprises, organisations, and even individuals to aid and promote instant public recognition. Your investment in a unique Logo Design for your business is essential to make a mark on the world and separate you from your competition. A logo is a design symbolising an organisation. It is a design that is used by an organisation for its letterhead, advertising material, and signs as an emblem by which the organisation can easily be recognised.
Creating a logo involves crafting a shape that makes this statement and is distinct in a world full of images and symbols and can be a very precise and challenging aspect of design.
A brand is powerful when it stands for a word in the mind of the consumer. It doesn’t matter if that brand is a product, a company, or a person—the same laws apply.

With digital technologies at the forefront of day-to-day operations, it is increasingly likely that more people will visit your website as opposed to your collateral and advertising combined. The digital age has moved marketing into a new phase, where online presence and visibility has become a vital element in any marketing strategy. Improving your online visibility through internet marketing is therefore a crucial addition to a good website. As part of your website design plan, primary tools such as Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), AdWords and Search Engine Marketing (SEM), are essential.
SEO – Search Engine Optimisation- utilises and manages the content of your website to organically increase traffic from search engines. It can increase your online inquiries and/or sales without the use of paid advertising. Research shows, even though technology is available everywhere and is extremely tangible, the majority of search engine users don’t scroll past the first page of search results. Therefore, the need for SEO becomes pivotal.
AdWords– are an online advertising service, placing advertising copy with search results as displayed by Google. Relevant and effective search terms that ultimately have the capacity to link potential customers with your product or service is the main goal, by stepping into the shoes of a target market in an attempt to understand the go-to search terms, ultimately deciphering the link between a brand/company and the desired clientele, a capacity to pull quality traffic to a website.
SEM – Search Engine Marketing– as a strategy, can radically boost conversion rates by increasing visibility in search engine results pages through optimisation and advertising.
It is imperative that your website works for you and not only your brand but also the growth of your business.

One of the most important parts of a restaurant business is its menu, whether you are a dine-in or takeaway establishment. A restaurant menu design should reflect the restaurant itself and its specific cuisine. A menu is what will lure new customers to try your restaurant or keep bringing back your regular clientele.

Infographics (a clipped compound of "information" and "graphics") are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They have evolved in recent years as a means of mass communication, designed to reach a wider audience by simplifying complex subjects and arranging them in an easy to digest format, unlike other types of visualizations. Infographics can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system's ability to see patterns and trends, making the data easily understandable at a first glance. Infographics are a powerful tool for displaying data, explaining concepts, simplifying presentations, mapping relationships, showing trends and providing essential insights.
The way you use social media will be unique to your business and industry. Social media can help personify your corporate voice, but it takes a significant investment in time and resources to be managed effectively. In today’s modern business world, social media should be a part of any digital and marketing strategy. Companies need to be present where customers are spending time, and customers spend a lot of their time on social media. Whether or not a company’s strategy is to communicate their latest product/service offering, broadcasting inspiring company news, or maintaining an open dialogue with clients, social media provides a powerful marketing tool that can reap measurable rewards. But, like so many modern inventions, social media is multifaceted and is a distinct difference between user-based and corporate-based social media, whether it is strategic content creation, content scheduling, social media advertising or platform engagement. It’s not just a broadcasting medium, but a technical exercise of engaging and communicating with your clients.
Social media is an extension of your online presence. If your social profiles have been left to stagnate, it makes your company seem disengaged. It is also one of the first places that potential clients go to find out more about your business. Therefore, you should consider the following:
What impression do you want potential clients to have?
How to know which platforms are right for your business to use?
How do you create useful/effective content for your audience?
How can you best use social media as a means to expand awareness about your brand and cultivate new leads?
Consumers these days have the right to public opinion given the freedom of speech within social media, and therefore how a company responds is imperative to their online reputation, whether the situation is positive feedback and sharing customer satisfaction with networks or broadcasting a negative experience to the masses.
Today, the majority of consumers can't Imagine their lives without social media. It's been woven into our society and has transformed the way we communicate. Throughout the 21st century, social media as a whole has adapted to meet the needs of its users. Brands also joined the arena, battling for consumers' attention. With all of these changes, audiences have become more distracted and discerning when deciding whom to follow and whom to trust.
To maximize audience engagement with your social media posts, companies need to set goals, identify their target audience, understand how your audiences differ between platforms, give call-to-action options and ensure they upload optimal content. Essentially, a company must segment their social media strategy in order to successfully interact with potential and existing customers online, and as the modern way your audience communicates, it's essential that your brand knows how to connect and talk with them while considering each social network's limitations.

Including Proofreading and Editing
Effectively communicating your brand through the power of text, can often become a challenge, and involves considerations on wording, tone, detail and flow, which can all affect the readability of a document, whether or not it’s online or offline. As the saying suggests, the pen is mightier than the sword, therefore, whether the text/copyright is online or offline it needs to clearly communicate your brand objectives in a welcoming and easy to read way, with clarity, personality and professionalism, ensuring your brand is represented in the best possible light.
The way text is written ultimately depends on the platform it is used on. Print collateral and advertising materials need to be snappy enough to cater to short attention spans; websites are more non-linear and need to consider which page a customer lands on when they visit a website; while, Search Engine Optimisation using text can impact traffic and conversions.
While building a database is crucial, so is the content you provide them. We create and deliver compelling email marketing campaigns that are responsive on all devices. Consider it a digital version of a flyer, where the receiver can interact with the content created and included, such as downloading brochures, watching videos and making immediate contact to enquire about prices and more details. Electronic Direct Mail Email Marketing Campaigns are a highly cost-effective form of digital marketing and used to develop relationships with potential customers and/or clients. Particular groups of customers can be targeted or even individuals, offering individual special deals on merchandise and/or services. When building a brand or aiming to get more traffic, email marketing campaigns, are an inexpensive way to advertise your company and its products and/or services. 94% of Internet users use email, while only 61% use social media. 75% of adult online users say that email marketing is their preferred marketing method. While we advocate the use of both, the catch is that email has a huge advantage over social media in that prospects and customers are more likely to see an email than social media, and when attached (included), it's a a great way to get more visits and/or revisits your website, followers on your social media channels, both which could equate to more interest, sales and income.
With everyone being so time poor these days and reaching clients and customers can become an endless struggle for any business. Research shows that 85% of people are more likely to buy a product after viewing a video, therefore video production is a highly effective tool for any marketing strategy. Videos can be executed in a variety of styles – including narrative, music, documentary or animation/doodles, while using motion graphics and the correct formatting of the final output for any specific file format or viewing platform. Our videos, despite their length, are both visually stunning and persuasive. Videos are a great way to “talk” to an audience as they can be viewed on all devices (particularly mobile) at the prospect’s leisure, often in times of commuter boredom. Posting such videos on social media channels, also reaches a wider audience in one hit.
