Marketing Information

To help small and start-up businesses, Mark Hardy is offering free design and marketing advice at the Zetagram design office in Carracastle, County Mayo.

Free Design Consultation

Zetagram's free design consultations are held at our offices in Carracastle, County Mayo, and can last up to 30 minutes without charge or obligation, at a pre-arranged appointment to suit both parties.

At Zetagram we like to talk, and believe that this is an integral part of the design process. It is an unfiltered and natural method that helps the designer understand your needs much better than any prepared written brief.

So, to remove any obstacle in exploring your ideas, Zetagram is offering 30 minutes free time to discuss the practical implications in relation to the design and marketing of your idea.

Pick our brain. We will do our best to provide both independent advice, and our own perspective from experience, to determine how you could move forward with your idea.

We like to provide practical, cost-effective solutions, and help our clients to see the whole process broken down step-by-step into smaller, easier to manage parts.


All meetings and consultations are by appointment only.

By attending any design consultation or meeting held at the premises of Zetagram (formerly Infiniti) the customer agrees:-

a) Free design consultations are without charge for the duration of 30 minutes, after which, at the customer's request to continue, the remainder of the meeting shall then be charged by the minute at the normal hourly rate.

b) Any ideas generated as a result of a free design consultation may be used by the customer under licence without obligation, but intellectual property rights of design and campaign ideas are retained by Zetagram (formerly Infiniti) for future applications and development.*

c) Zetagram (formerly Infiniti) shall in no circumstances be liable - i) for any indirect or consequential loss while on Zetagram premises. ii) or for any claims related to death or personal injury while on Zetagram premises. Clients shall attend meetings at their own risk.

*This just means you don't solely own the ideas, but you can use them. We like to retain ownership of our ideas so we can let other clients use them as well.


To get the most out of your free design consultation, we would suggest you bring as much information with you as possible, so we can quickly get a clear and accurate idea of what you are trying to achieve.

This allows more time for discussion, and more potential time for ideas. Useful information might include:-

  • A prepared outline of your idea
  • Your business plan or mission statement
  • Examples of your products
  • A list of direct competitors
  • Any existing brochures or adverts
  • Any existing stationery or business cards
  • Photos of your van (all sides)
  • Photos of your premises (for signage)
  • Examples of designs you like
  • Examples of websites you like
  • Any content you already have (text or images)

This doesn't have to be anything fancy. Hand-written notes and camera phone shots are perfectly fine, so you don't have to invest a great deal of time.
