The Ostara Approach

At Ostara Studio, our aim is to improve your content through brand strategy. Content, designs and brands that matter, is what achieves client engagement. We assist in achieving your brand goals through a process we call the 3 eyes (or 3 i’s): Idea to Identification to Implementation. Thus we always start with brand strategy, and this is part of our content creation and campaign deliverables. This way we can guarantee that objectives and business goals are met and exceeded.

Types of Deliverables

UX & Web Design

There are various types of websites: online shops, portfolio sites, business sites, news and entertainment sites, blogs and social media platforms. Each website has a purpose and intended style to draw and entice a specific user. The site’s design is focussed on the user’s experience (UX). At Ostara good user design practice dictates the design, interface and architecture of the website. The functionality of your site is there to ensure that your website offers a user friendly, sensible and enjoyable experience to your ideal target audience, making them come back for more.

Strategy & Training

Strategic brand management is at the core of all of our deliverables. We ensure that your 5 year goals are implemented in our design deliverables. Using your business goals, we set up a brand strategy/ marketing plan during your brand strategy consultation.

Additionally, we believe in empowering our clients to manage their brands themselves. In a stifling economy, empowering your staff to manage your social media, ensures that skill development enhances your business capital from the inside.

Photography & Films

From years of experience we have identified that businesses require a holistic approach to branding and marketing. A good logo doesn’t cut it anymore. A good website is only as good as it’s content. A social media site is also only as good as it’s worst piece of content. Therefore, we believe in a holistic approach that does not only offer good design, but also good photographic and film content. With Liz Bharo, a professional at brand, product and profile photography, we can offer you a holistic approach to your complete brand from A-Z.
