Your Global Goodguys

You won’t have missed the countdown and occasional mention of our exotic client on our social media recently, so we thought we’d better tell you all about it.

Our client!

Back in May, Dubai-based Cost Management consultancy Omnium International approached us following a referral from a friend of CRE8’s to quote for some graphic design and printed marketing material. The more we discussed and explored the brief with the company directors, the more it developed and we are now absolutely delighted to be working with Omnium on a full brand consultancy, marketing strategy and web development project; once we’ve concluded what is proving to be a really immersing project for all of the team, we should be able to produce that original graphic design and print job!

This is our first major international project and we’re relishing the challenges that it’s bringing; the opportunity to develop and bring new life to a quality, established business like Omnium is one we are delighted to have been given.

Local values, internationally

It’s important to us to retain all the values that make our business special, and that includes our personal approach. This week, Jonathan and I (VG!) have travelled to Dubai to spend five days onsite with the client, working with its team and presenting our initial research, website wireframes and graphical mock-ups. Whilst there, I’ll be continuing our brand definition work, as well as gathering much of the information I need to develop the written content. Jonathan will be working on the designs with Omnium, ensuring that the website ticks all the right boxes; he’ll then be looking at images and designs for functionality and additional content pages.

Dubai bound!

The journey so far

I’ve written this on the plane but having just realised that we land in 4 hours and it’s the middle of the night, I’d better get some shut-eye! Perhaps once I’ve finished a lovely glass of red wine though. Well, it is Friday… The airport experience was busy but straightforward (apart from transporting Jonathan’s computer – who knew a 27” monitor in a huge case and weighing 20kg would be oversized baggage?!). I even managed some emergency shopping!
