Branding is more than a logo or a quirky catchphrase. A brand encapsulates the holistic customer experience. Branding is made up of a logo, website, merchandise, social media activity, tone, personality and much more. Essentially, your brand is how your customers and/or target market perceive you.

The Branding and Design team at Octopus understands the vital role that strong branding plays in promoting your business. We have worked alongside organisations in the recruitment, retail, food and tourism sectors. We have worked in partnership with first-time business owners and sole traders with developing their branding from the ground up. We also have an extensive history of working alongside SMEs who wished to move in a totally different direction with a company rebrand. We also know how important branding is to help set you apart from your competition, generating referrals, helping customers to know what to expect and to connect with them on an emotional level. Using our know-how and creativity, we can provide you with a branding and design strategy which adds long-term value to your business.

Even though we are in the full swing of the digital revolution, printed collateral can still be used for anything from supporting sales pitches, launching new products and promoting special offers. High-quality printing continues to have a great impact in the world of business.

At Octopus, we are fortunate enough to work with a Printing expert with over 20 years of experience in the industry. He works in close partnership with our Branding and Design team managing the Print requirements of all our clients. We have an extensive network of print suppliers who help us to ensure excellent results and quick turnaround. If you are looking to go down the traditional route, we can print your work on a commercial press. In terms of quality and higher volumes, this remains the best method. On the other hand, if you are pressed for time or require a low volume, we can also produce your work using a digital press. Regardless of your requirements and timescales, we will endeavour to provide you with print solutions that personify your brand and make your business stand out.
