 001. Introduction



Since May 2007, I have been working with a marketing & graphic design company called Octagon. They specialise in the promotional marketing of various fairly high-profile clients around Bangor and indeed Northern Ireland, including estate agencies, restaurants, property development companies, the PSNI and Translink to name but a few.



The studio consists of several Apple Mac machines, a central x-serve for storing and updating files (following strict location and naming conventions, of course) and a projector for displaying their impressive array of multimedia services to potential clients, or watching episodes of Scrubs during our generous lunch breaks. 


Octagon is twelve years old. The company originally started as a printing brokers before realising the potential behind graphic design as a marketing medium, and using the already-made connections within the printing world, began offering its new services to current clients.



The staff hierarchy however is rather minimal. Whilst the founder of Octagon has since moved to other pastures, he left behind him two talented professionals to run the company, one of which is an IMD graduate. Ray is responsible mainly for print/editorial/stationery work, whereas Damien concentrates on the electronic/multimedia/web aspects of the creative portfolio. They collaborate on corporate identities.
