  • SEO - Search Engine Optimization

    Montreal designs accountable image

    Have a website and listed on social media? But just because it is built, are the coming? SEO is 'getting found'.

    Today young and old are using key words to find a solution to business or personal needs - therefore all your marketing media must have the elements that get you to the top of any generic search. We bring special diagnostics into play and then ensure SEO optimizes all the elements to target to your audience. And, once done, we have the electronic trackers to monitor results.

  • Marketing Strategy

    Montreal designs born image

    To plan we first need to understand where you are now and where you want to go. Sometimes this is not too obvious and requires some soul searching. (We have sometimes done in-office discovery sessions with various stake holders, which gave some surprising, and enlightening results. This is the least expensive way to identify opportunities, but obviously there are more complete options).

Services

Marketing and Branding

Ensuring the basics of making your print image and message match and support your web presence to a more robust corporate consistency.

Websites

Optimized, organized, clear and quick to navigate are important requirements aside from an effective design and Search Engine Optimization.

Tradeshows

Competition is fierce and you have little time to grab your audience's attention. An effective design is an absolute with careful attention to deadline and budget.

SEO

Our internet marketing strategy considers a diagnostic list of the latest search engines requirements to targeted your audience when your market searches via Google.

Corporate Identity

The starting point of your whole corporate image. The colours typography and style of a logo will often dictate the corporate look of the rest of a company's literature.

Brochures

One of the most elegant and informative ways of presenting an entire script of products or services with particular attention to the design complementing it with paper textures, mixed inks and die cuts.

Posters

Posters are a great punctuation mark in any campaign or point of purchase. The canvas size alone demands attention but, with a striking design, can become a collector's item.

Catalogues

Grafik strikes the balance between highlighting the product and complementary design elements then delivers it with clarity and organization.

Banners

At Grafik, we design and print banners on a variety of materials from rich silky fabrics to sturdy long lasting gaterboard or foam core for quick hassle-free campaigns.

Packaging

Design, engineering and printing are key elements in executing a winning product!

How we do

our working process in 3 steps

PLANNING & STRATEGY

To plan we first need to understand where you are now and where you want to go. Sometimes this is not too obvious and requires some soul searching. We have sometimes done in-office discovery sessions with various stake holders, which gave some surprising, and enlightening results.

Then comes the plan, which has to encompass marketing, sales, sometimes finance, and of course production or service capability. Strategy is how to implement the plan over time, with various components having to fall into place and time.

DESIGN & DEVELOP

Where we excel is the cohesive design of all the marketing and sales assets. Brand recognition sometimes requires a multifaceted approach, which does not have to be expensive, but does have to clearly communicate value and answer the ?why you?? question in all clients? minds.

TEST & DELIVER

If the marketing investment is going to be large, it is worth test driving the designs on a smaller group first to ensure the message is understood and absorbed. Even a small scale test with just a few select potential clients can give assurance or re-direct the message.

Prices

Go with basic, move up to intermediate, fly to premium.

Pricing does not have to be an obstacle. We have done mini-websites for as little as $600, which will at least give a presence and locate-ability. We have produced 2 copies of a corporate presentation. We can also plan for a very large budget which can be rolled out over time in small, digestible sections, which has the benefit of spreading out cost as well as giving the opportunity to adjust implementation or content. More importantly, initial positive results give confidence to move forward with further investment.
