I truly believe my marketing and branding is some of the best in the business, thanks in large part to Lauren’s vision. She’s smart, innovative, creative and efficient, and when she says work will be done, it is always done. I am thrilled to have Lauren on my team, and would recommend her to any broker." 

Development, branding and e-commerce strategy for lifestyle brand

As a new-to-the-market product, Pinky needed all the trappings of a lifestyle brand, but fast, and on a tight budget. As a line of all-natural dry skin relief products, Pinky was looking for beautiful, yet trustworthy and functional branding. After thorough market and target consumer analyses, we developed the brand voice and identity. Next came the actual deliverables of logo, brand story, and label design...brought to market in less than one month! With product's packaging in place, we then setup Pinky's e-commerce, sales collateral, photography, and social media. 

Work completed: Product packaging, logo, brand story, e-commerce and photography.
