BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Founder and Managing Partner of MyOrganic - an e-commerce store specialized in selling organic cosmetics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire OCTAGRAM?

We contracted Octagram to create our brand identity for MyOrganic and develop our e-commerce website.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to create a brand image that would position MyOrganic as a friendly, healthy and nature-oriented company using a clean and elegant approach. The website had to be very well optimized for SEO, easy to navigate and display information in an elegant and uncluttered manner.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected Octagram for their portfolio and experience of working with global brands and also because we liked their flexibility and friendly way of communicating, something you don't usually find in a large agency.

Describe the project in detail.

We had to go through three different concepts before deciding on the way we wanted to go with our logo and brand identity and from there a couple of more iterations were needed to reach the final design for the logo and a mood board to express the brand's visual language.

In the web development phase, we first put together a technical brief together with Octagram and defined the guidelines for the look & feel of the website. The next steps included wireframes, design proposals, and implementation.

What was the team composition?

From my knowledge, the team that worked on the project was made of one designer and two programmers + the project manager. We communicated directly with the project manager and designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The project duration was 4 months (brand identity + web development) and the website was launched in his initial version but was continuously optimized ever since. We have a very good overall conversion rate for Organic Traffic (2.43%) and Direct Traffic (1.9%), compared to 1.2% the industry average in our country. And according to a survey we ask customers to fill in after they place an order, 79% of them consider they had a very good or excellent shopping experience.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had excellent communication with Octagram and as I mentioned previously I was very happy with their flexibility and the fact that deadlines were met when the brief was not altered along the way. They always communicate clearly when the timeline and budget are affected by a new request and they propose a new deadline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I think there are a few things defining Octagram:

  1. They think together with the client and propose solutions
  2. They provide good quality work and they stand by their products 
  3. They did their best to further optimize the website after it was launched
  4. They reply promptly and do their best to stick to deadlines if deadlines cannot be met, they let me know in time

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nobody is perfect. We wish the website could've been launched sooner, but it was nobody's fault as things had to be adapted along the way.
