I am so excited to get started on creating your beautiful new brand and I'd like to thank you once again for choosing Octarine Design - it is such a privilege to be part of your journey and I can't wait to see the amazing results we'll achieve.
Have a read through this welcome page which will provide you with everything you need to know about what to expect over the next few weeks.
If you have any questions, just hit the chat button and ask away.
LET'S DO THIS!
The first stage of our journey together is spent learning all about your business - your why, your audience, your future plans. You will be given some exploration tasks to complete to start building together ideas, concepts and direction for your branding.
The next stage is all about the strategy and the meaning behind your brand. We will dive into discovering exactly who your target audience is and what we need to create with your branding to make sure it appeals directly to them, developing your messaging and identity.
Time for me to get creative and get to work creating your designs - not only branding that looks beautiful, but branding that inspires your audience; instils confidence in you and creates success for your business.
Once we have finished the branding process, you will have the tools and the confidence to use your brand to position yourself at the forefront of your industry and create the work you are passionate about for the people who are passionate about your business.
Your payment dates have been outlined in our contract and I have also included a link to them at the top of this page. You will be sent an invoice for each payment which will include a link to pay directly. Copies of your invoices can also be found at the top of this page.
Unless previously discussed, payments should be paid on their due date. Failure to complete payments in time may result in project delays and could potentially incur a late fee of £20.
All communication will be done via my website chat function. Copies of our messages will also be sent to your inbox if you prefer to reply via email. I am also more than happy to chat over the phone and will schedule in catch up Zoom calls, as and when needed.

At various stages of the design process, I will be asking you for feedback regarding the concepts I've sent you. Here are a couple of tips that will be really helpful when providing your feedback to ensure that we end up with a result you absolutely love!
The aim of our time together is to create a brand that you truly love. If there are any aspects of designs that I send over that you're not happy with and want to change, please let me know. Sometimes, the tiniest changes can cause a huge impact in how you feel about a design.
The more specific and detailed you are in your feedback, the easier it is for more to make the changes you're looking for. I understand that sometimes it's hard to put down in words exactly what doesn't feel quite right about a design so feel free to be as visual as possible with your feedback.
If you have an idea of how you'd like an element of the design to look, please let me know. This is a collaborative process and I am always happy to hear of ideas you have and try something new.
As part of my process, I like to share small snippets of work I'm in the process of creating on my social media accounts as well as part of my email marketing.
This helps me show real-time examples of my work and gives an insight into my design process. If you are not happy to have small portions of your project shown, please let me know beforehand.
Before we get started on your project, there are a few exploration tasks I'd love you to complete. These will give me a great starting point about what you're looking for from your dream brand. Please let me know if you have any questions about these tasks.
