"studio tour" inspired by @cmadydesigns 👊😁 

Every designer is different but for me having a work space that's fun to be in is vital to the process. I prefer lots of sound and flashing lights... working in a quiet space free from distractions is quite a bit harder for me 🙂 the more synthwave the better 😁😁😁

Octopus Red provides top notch service for all of your graphic design, marketing and website needs. I’ve worked with them on several projects and my expectations have been exceeded on every level. Their creativity and expertise is unbeatable. Plus they’re extremely easy to work with, responsive to emails and very timely with meeting or exceeding deadlines.

Megan Chipman,

I have worked with Octopus Red, and find their work – and their work ethic – to be outstanding. It was a large project with many moving parts, and Lucas was always ready to jump in whenever we had changes or new ideas. I appreciated his ideas, his fair pricing and of course, loved the final product.

Diana Boal ,
I think Luke and Laura from Octopus Red are totally amazing. They wave their wands and pull all your deepest dreams from your brain, then manage to conceptualize all of this on paper. They work so well together – they even managed to crystallize my very confused thoughts. I am so pleased that we chose to work with you both and am grateful that such an accomplished and professional team is right here in Brantford. As an aside, I have since become aware that they have also done some great work for a number of charitable agencies in town. Kudos to them for being so aware of the community around them.
Alayne Sokolowski,
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Octopus Red on a couple different occasions and have had nothing positive experiences. Beyond being the most creative people that I have ever dealt with, they are also very responsive and passionate about what they do. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
Dwayne Armstrong,
I’ve worked with Octopus Red at my last two companies and been incredibly happy with the results of every engagement. Everyone has been professional and responsive, but why I keep going back is the quality of work; consistently solid creative and polished execution ensure I go straight to Octopus Red when I need help.
Jamie Hari,
I have used Octopus Red for design work for many years to outstanding success. I not only highly recommend them for their exceptional design and creative process, but the generosity they show in sharing their years of experience and knowledge is above and beyond any firm I have ever used before. The team of Laura and Lucas Duguid is nothing less than a powerhouse of creativity, expertise, and business savvy.
Tee McD,
Octopus Red has gone above and beyond with every contract I’ve had with them. They’re produced stellar design work and provided helpful marketing advice along the way. I’ve used their services twice now to help brand a major music festival and they’ve always delivered beyond my expectations.
Ian Maracle,
