We mix commercial awareness with beautiful design to create powerful brand experiences.

Discovery

A project brief is formed by asking questions, carrying out research and experiencing the service or product first hand. This enables us to determine the project aims and define the target audience.

Concept

The project brief is analysed and researched. This forms the basis for experimentation that leads to the creation of concepts. Creative thinking and problem solving allows us to generate solutions that answer the project brief in a unique manner.

Design

The design concept takes form as it is developed and applied to the appropriate media and relevant formats. Consistency is key to ensuring branding and messaging achieves the goal of maintaining a strong identity.

"Occupying an unusual niche, it was essential that the branding captured the essence of our unusual offer. Agent8 created something that succeeded very well in reflecting our audio based origins but that also was individual and modern – and in keeping with the contemporary, lively design aesthetic of consumer facing mobile content companies."

"Nick is a real find. He quickly understands exactly what the brief requires and responds with elegant, simple, clean, stunning design that is on brief. He is a pleasure to work with and gives 110%. I have personally shared his contact details with many contacts and recommend him highly."

"Nick readily understood the various issues facing a specialised website for the legal profession. Without his insight and excellent advice on branding, design and functionality, the website could not have succeeded. Users of the site often praise its clean, attractive design and ease of use."

"The whole process was quick, efficient and very creative. Nick was helpful with advice and support throughout the life-cycle of the project, from concept to live website. I would have no hesitation in recommending Agent8 to any company looking to start-up or re-invent their web presence."
