AUGUST
MEDIA

PROCESS

“There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story.”

At August Media, we truly believe in the power of a compelling story. We are an enthusiastic and competitive team of storytellers, strategists, editors and designers in downtown Toronto, committed to translating your story into visuals that will represent your voice and get people’s attention.

Our diverse team is united by the same belief that the right visuals can change everything. We are here to help you develop a strategy to tell your story in a way that is entirely unique to you and your brand. Being a boutique agency, we care about every client and understand that small businesses are the backbone of our society.

You want to create meaningful and impactful content for your company. Our goal is to deliver content that works for you, your brand, your timeline, and your ideal customer. Whether you need a set of new photos for your website, video for your look book or to upgrade your social media game, we are just a few clicks away and would love to hear more.

Individual Projects

You have an existing photo, video or social need. You may already have a firm idea in place or want some assistance developing the concept. Whether you need photos, videos, social media strategy or a mix of the three; let’s talk about your specific project! We’ll work together to build a customized package to meet your style, needs and business objectives.

Ongoing Content Creation

Do you require ongoing assistance creating consistent, high-quality content on a regular basis? We offer packages to create beautiful, memorable imagery and videos on a monthly basis for your social media and web channels. In our current fast-paced, plugged-in world, brands have to be adaptable, quick to react to evolving trends in the digital space, and able to deliver consistent content to their fans and customers. Let us help you make it all happen, with a strategy in mind to scale your business and attract new clients and followers along the way.

FRESH IDEA

You know you need assistance communicating your brand’s story through visuals, and maybe you could use some help with social media, but aren’t sure where to begin. Whether you’re just starting out or need a complete refresh for your existing brand, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to create custom visuals (bye bye stock imagery!) that are as unique as your brand is.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We’ll get to know you, your existing branding, website + social media platforms, and any dreams you have for your company. After that, our team will do a deep dive on the market, any competitors, your target audience and then offer some feedback on content gaps, ideas and opportunities.

STRATEGY CREATION

Together, we’ll establish the frequency of your content needs (is this a one-time shoot or do you require ongoing content creation?) and the medium of the content required for your various channels (photos, videos, or a mix of the two?). Then, we’ll identify a colour scheme and key elements for your visuals and send over a moodboard of what we intend to capture for you. Once that’s approved, we’ll make a plan for our shoot, taking care of every detail from broader creative direction and a shot list for the day, to nitty-gritty items like location scouting, prop sourcing, talent hiring and more.

CONTENT PRODUCTION

Let’s make some magic! Our team of professionals each have a unique set of talents, and when working with us, you have access to all of them. With in-house creative & art direction, fashion styling, photographers, cinematographers, copywriters and social media managers, we handle everything as a one stop shop. We’ll execute your photo and video shoot with the end result in mind; optimizing your content for your website, core branding, Facebook, Instagram Stories and beyond.

IMPLEMENTATION

You’ll receive all the assets with a game plan for incorporating them in your existing website and social media accounts. Need help creating a social media directive outlining best practices, or for the content to be scheduled and rolled out with the help of a social media manager? We’ve got you. Our team is happy to help with the management and marketing of your visuals, too.
