What we do

STRATEGIC

THINKING

We push. We make you nervous.

We get results. Let's get to work.

Go to THE WORKS or THE LAB to take a peek.

- and why

 
logo_edited.jpg

 

Making a creative impact from the seed of an idea to the meteoric launch of your product.

 

We work with people who want to do big things: bring culture and enlightenment to the world; create products that rewrite the rules of their sector; change minds and change lives. 

Now the key questions we ask of our work are: is it different, is it differentiating, and will it make a difference?

 

We inspire. We build. We create.

the name behind POLLONAIS  

- meet Hope Pollonais.

 

"I am an artist, illustrator, educator and independent designer living and working in Atlanta GA. My academic background, coupled with my relevant work experience, has given me the tools and ability necessary to add value to any position, given the opportunity. If I were to describe myself beyond a resume, I would say I am " a modern-day renaissance woman," who is constantly looking for new programs, new sites, new methodologies or new ways to do my work. I’m determined to find out, even if I have to try a few times to get the best outcome. I am extremely interested in blending my design and engineering background to work on challenging and impactful projects: shifting attitudes from impossible to I’m possible. "

HOW WE WORK

DESIGN PROCESS SIMPLIFIED

Our design process is fluid and changing, just like the technology and methodology we build and create with. The flowchart outlines the general process we use to develop ideas. This process stems from our team make-up, our tools, and our work flow.

  • Talk with client and gather expectations about the project.

  • Define and determine goals, evaluating technical requirements and content.

  • Establish content priority, style and a visual guide for the product.

  • Finalize Design; create assets based on needs and it is often a cyclical collaboration between client and designer.

  • Launch; release the creation to the world.

STRATEGY

Create A Foundation For Success

Connect with us to discuss where you’re at, what you need, and how we can help you achieve your goals. We can design with purpose.

BRAND

Create An Identity

Ultimately a brand isn’t a logo or a tagline. It is the feeling a customer has about your company. We’ll design a system that has identity, communicates clearly, and establishes trust.

ART DIRECTION

Pulling The Pieces Together

We collaborate with our network of professional artists and illustrators to develop work that is truly special and uniquely you. We oversee the set design, color theory, and composition to ensure all elements adhere to your brand standards and reinforce identity.

'OUT OF THE BOX'

Create a Reason To Believe

With proper strategy, messaging, design, development and visuals, your idea can reach new audiences and establish a competitive advantage in the market. At POLLONAIS, we’ll be here for you every step of the way: from concept to execution.

 

The Works.

We are here, there and everywhere.
