Our Process

Welcome to the world of Integrated Communications Engineeringā„¢ (ICEā„¢) by Rain! ICEā„¢ isn’t just your typical marketing, design, and communications approach; it’s like crafting the perfect lemonade, achieving a meticulous blend of lemons, water, sugar, and of course, ice!

ICEā„¢ is our secret sauce, a comprehensive methodology that takes your marketing efforts from sour to sweet. It’s all about planning, designing, executing, and evaluating with maximum impact in mind.

During the discovery phase, we delve deep into understanding our clients' goals, values, and target audience. Through in-depth discussions and research, we uncover insights that guide our creative strategy and inform our design decisions. This phase sets the foundation for a successful partnership and ensures alignment between our clients' vision and our design approach.
In the design and development phase, our team of skilled designers and developers bring concepts to life with creativity and precision. We combine innovative thinking with technical expertise to craft visually stunning and functional solutions tailored to our clients' needs. Through iterative refinement and collaboration, we ensure that every detail is thoughtfully considered and every element serves a purpose.
Once the design is finalized, we transition into the delivery and support phase, where we deliver the final product and provide ongoing support to our clients. Whether it's launching a website, printing marketing collateral, or implementing a branding strategy, we ensure a seamless transition and offer assistance every step of the way. Our commitment to client satisfaction extends beyond delivery, as we continue to support and empower our clients to achieve their business goals.

ICEā„¢ is more than a process; it’s a transformation. We’ve used it to create effective award-winning solutions for global brands and startups alike. So, if you want to take your brand from lukewarm to ice-cold awesome, ICEā„¢ is the way to grow!
