South Carolina Council on Competitiveness

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 web presence that puts the information first, getting users right where they need to be in only a few clicks. Simplicity in design and messaging makes this site 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 theme throughout the main site, as well as additional industry cluster sites. See all of them and how the templates, messaging and graphics are similar, but different below.

Marcus Lattimore

Marcus Lattimore

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.

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 blog to inspire and even help others in their own paths to fulfillment. 

Imperial Custom Clothiers

Octagon is proud to have a longtime partnership with Imperial Custom Clothiers. This close relationship allowed our team to easily create a marketing plan, an upgraded online presence and an e-commerce web store that represents the upscale South Carolina boutique clothier, headquartered in Columbia, SC.  

Imperial is known for extreme attention to detail, easy customer service and top-notch style.  It is our hope that the website allows the customer an easy, pleasurable experience, just as if you were in their stylish downtown loft.

South Carolina Convenience & Petroleum Marketers Association

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 web site with 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.

Columbia Tranquility CBD

CBD is a growing industry that has taken over the marketplace with stores locally and online. Columbia Tranquility is veteran-owned and takes overall health and wellbeing into the utmost consideration when selling CBD products.

To better serve its current customers and grow outside of South Carolina, Columbia Tranquility hired Octagon to setup a robust, but clean and simple web store that’s easy on the customer and makes on-the-go mobile purchasing a breeze.

Sejwad Hospitality

If you’ve been out and about or stayed in a hotel in South Carolina, odds are you visited a Sejwad Hospitality establishment.

From the iconic Sheraton downtown Columbia with rooftop bar and underground Starbucks, to their high-end wedding venues and entertainment spaces, Sejwad’s quality is unmatched. We hope their new website and location photography lets you feel the warmth of true Southern Hospitality.  If it doesn’t, just book a stay and you’ll instantly feel the vibe.

Octagon continues to provide web, graphic and marketing support as well as photography for Sejwad Hospitality.

Garners Ferry Dentistry

Octagon handled the website design, staff and office photography, as well as all signage and marketing materials for the practice. We continue to provide ongoing web site, marketing and Search Engine Optimization services.

Manufactured Housing Institute of SC

MHISC is a dynamic association with many audiences, the number one being their members.  Octagon created a new logo and brand for MHISC playing off of the “manufactured” and “housing” pieces.  Once the logo design was complete, we created a brand new web site with password-protected member area, giving members access to the directory, a library of tagged publications and articles and more.  

The public-facing part of the website features online event registration and payments, industry news, a “find a retailer” map to locate a housing retailer in your area of the state,  and online application for membership and renewals.

South Carolina Automobile
Dealers Association

SCADA and Octagon began a partnership over the association’s need for a new brand.  We worked together to created a new logo and helped integrate it into all digital and print materials  (note: it looks great on an ice sculpture, too). 

After the brand was in place and the koozies were ordered, Octagon created a new website with a “members only” login area with industry updates and a  full member directory.  The website also has a “find a dealer” map search function, an online store for selling official SC temp tags, a calendar of events and everything an association needs to keep its members up-to-date.

Octagon regularly assists SCADA with staff, event and board member photography, as well as other creative marketing needs.

South Carolina Bankers Association

Octagon has been assisting the South Carolina Bankers Association for more than 10 years with design projects, large and small. 

In addition to a recent overhaul of the organization’s print and digital materials, Octagon developed a streamlined website, giving members quick, easy access to event registrations, directories and logins, while also showcasing the history and honoring the legacy of the association through historic photos and articles throughout.

Octagon’s minimalistic, “to the point” approach gets several audiences where they need to be with fewer clicks and scrolls and automates the whole process.

Flip & Give

Columbia real estate firm, The Moore Company, flipped a Shandon bungalow and allowed the community to help design the home by voting for plans, fixtures and finishes along the way.  When complete, they donated more than $100K of the proceeds to local charities, hence the name: Flip & Give. 

Octagon was there from start to finish, creating the Flip & Give logo, providing web design of the site where the community voted, as well as all print & digital ad materials as needed.  We assisted with before and after photography and  promoted the whole project and weekly design votes on social media, giving supporters regular updates on the renovation.

Noma: The Trestle District

An up-and-coming district in Columbia, South Carolina, “NOMA” represents the longstanding history of a tight-knit business community that has called North Columbia’s Main Street Corridor home for decades.

Octagon was hired to brand this artistic district and created a logo around the historic landmark that ties it all together – the trestle.  In addition to the brand, Octagon created the district’s official website to showcase member businesses, community events and the people who work & play here every day.

Branded street signs, drone photography, marketing materials, loads of swag and daily social media management are just a few of the other services we provided in rebranding this thriving corridor.

South Carolina African American History Calendar

An annual tradition of more than 30 years, The South Carolina African American History Calendar is as much a part of our state’s history as the impacts made by the honorees themselves. 

Each year, the printed calendar honors 12 South Carolinians who have made significant contributions to the African American Community and is distributed to schools, businesses and churches throughout the state.

Octagon is proud to have designed last year’s print calendar, as well as the website with digital download and archive of all previous calendars. We also designed and printed all materials for the unveiling event and presentation and assisted with photography and videography of the event.
