How We Work

Our philosophy is simple. We are good people who do good work. We don’t excessively use marketing buzzwords to sound impressive. We tend to be more focused on promoting you than ourselves and we think that sets us apart.

We could show you videos of us writing on whiteboards and ‘high-fiving’ over the conference table here, but the truth is… the creative process is messy.

Branding, Website Development and Social Media can be a pain, but we love the challenge and learning about new industries. Please view some of our recent work below and let us know if we can help!

The Moore Company

WEBSITE development  |  IDX INTEGRATION  |  SEO  |  MARKETING MATERIALS  |  SIGNAGE  |  LISTING PHOTOGRAPHY  |  VIDEOGRAPHY

The Moore Company, Columbia’s leading boutique real estate firm, and Octagon have been partners for many years. Octagon has provided general web site design and marketing services in addition to marketing specific projects for local housing developments, as well as photography and website design for community projects such as Flip & Give.

During this time, we have been able to see the level of detail and “perfectionism” that goes into everything they do from home renovation to helping clients with their transactions. Building a web site was no different and we hope users of their new site will feel this sense of creativity and continuity flow onto the web. Check out the site and give them a call if you’re buying or selling.

Marcus Lattimore

BRANDING  |  WEBSITE DESIGN  |  SEO  |  PHOTOGRAPHY  |  BLOG

You think you know the man on the field, but Marcus Lattimore’s purpose extends far beyond athletics. Always writing and sharing his insights with others, he called on Octagon to design a new logo and website to act as a safe space for his raw, inspiring thoughts, poetry and tips to living a meaningful life.  His…. “reflections,” as portrayed simplistically in the new logo and site.

Candid photos show the “real” side of this popular face and reinforce the fact that you really don’t know who someone is based on a first impression.

Working closely together, we have started the process and look forward to helping share these writings through social media and his new website blog to inspire and even help others in their own paths to fulfillment.

South Carolina Council on Competitiveness

WEBSITE development  |  SEO  |  INFOGRAPHICS  |  GRAPHICS  |  CLUSTER BRANDING + WEBSITES

Centered around the hefty goal of keeping South Carolina’s growing business sector and economy competitive, “The Council” drives South Carolina’s long-term economic growth by managing the state’s industry clusters and providing the research, network, and resources these industries require to thrive.

With so many different business sectors, projects, and initiatives, the organization tasked Octagon with helping to simplify messaging and create a new website presence that puts the information first, getting users right where they need to be in only a few clicks. Simplicity in web design and messaging makes this website easy to use on desktop, tablets, and mobile devices, and the mission easy to digest for newcomers. 

While we’ve been partners with this organization for more than 10 years, our newest web upgrade provides a central website theme throughout the main website, as well as additional industry cluster sites. See all of them and how the web templates, messaging and graphics are similar but different.

South Carolina Convenience & Petroleum Marketers Association

WEBSITE DESIGN  |  BRANDING |  SEO  |  GRAPHICS

When the South Carolina Association of Convenience Stores and the South Carolina Petroleum Marketers Association merged in January of 2020, this 100-year-old association needed new branding, logo design, and a website design that incorporated many elements in one place.  

Octagon got to work quickly creating a new logo and brand for the SCCPMA, using elements based around South Carolina, SC state government, petroleum and convenience stores. Once the logo design was complete, we created a new website with a password-protected member area, giving members access to directories and private documents. 

The public-facing part of the website features online event registration and payments, industry news, and an online application for membership and renewals. Octagon continues to provide ongoing web development for SCCPMA.
