Our Solutions

Solution 1

When talking to Muhammadu about his aspirations and goals, we learned that he wanted to achieve his goal of being the biggest agricultural farm in his community. While thinking of ways to help him, it became obvious that the promotional side of his business needed work. To solve this issue, we decided to help him create ways to get his name out to his community and become more noticed. We started by working to create a logo that could be put onto flyers, business cards, etc. This logo will help make his business unforgettable to consumers. After plenty of back and forth communication, we created a beautiful logo that fulfilled all of our business partners wishes.

After creating a logo, we decided to love forward with the business cards. With business cards, Muhammadu will be able to expand his business throughout his entire community and as a  result, he will receive more business.
