Coffee-based skincare that makes babes feel like babes.
Everything. Willow & Blake’s founders created frank body as a case study for what they could do when given complete creative freedom. We put our money where our mouths are, by funding the brand we were building and building the brand we were funding. We think it’s a pretty good case study.
Everything. Name & brand development, tone of voice, social media strategy, art direction, packaging, EDMs, & campaign creative.
The beauty industry is full of jargon, hyperbole and copycats. We decided to buck the trend, being honest, upfront & original. It was this thought process from which the name and personality of frank body evolved. Using this concept we developed a social media strategy focused primarily on user generated content, an original tone of voice and influencer outreach. Four and half years later we have over 690K Instagram followers, 5.4 million searches in google and over 2 million products sold in over 144 countries. The reason frank worked? A great product, good timing and a willingness to develop an original idea, not copy something that was already being done.

When a man loves a grape and another man loves a grape, something beautiful happens.
A brand identity that would stand out from the crowded shelves and connect to younger audiences, away from the BS the wine industry is full of, that articulated their vision for a wine inspired by faith and reason.
Tone of Voice
Partnering with Voice design agency, we developed a story that highlighted the experience and passion of two of their great winemakers, building it into a comprehensive story, or in this case a love story. With a casual yet premium voice, we showed that their wine is made to enjoy, not dissect.

To positively communicate how our choices today impact our children’s future. A choice like choosing a nappy that’s baby and planet friendly. It’s in our hands. And arms.

12 billboards, 45 panels, exposure to 800,000 people. We developed a campaign that positioned nappies as a piece of technology and Tooshies as the future. It encouraged new parents to feel empowered – not scared – about the choices and changes that come with parenting. Apparently, up to 10 changes a day.

We’re now splashing ongoing international campaigns across their offline stores and online touch-points.

A mortgage brokerage that promises not to forget you after they’ve met you.

They even helped our co-founder, Jess, secure a mortgage for her first home.

A small grain doing big things.
Teff had a great product, but they needed a brand identity. They needed a voice that would help them stand out on shelf, on social and in the minds of consumers. Most importantly, they needed to make sure people knew what teff actually was.
Established a voice and message hierarchy for the brand, with a focus on explaining what the unknown grain was and the benefits of it. We developed a style guide for communications and a social strategy to assist their retail team with pitching for ranging.

Make Culture happen.
Created by the Australian government in 2003, ACF funds arts projects of all sizes. But the rise of easy to use crowd-funding platforms had left them out of touch to a large part of the art community. They needed to refresh their brand to appeal to a new generation of art lovers.
Tone of voice
With communications centered around the concept ‘Make Culture Happen’ we removed the high brow government jargon and humanised the arts. In 2016 they raised a record $2.7million to support 340 artists.

Spread the nut.
The Royal Nut Company have been in the nut industry of over 20 years. They wanted a new brand that was modern but would still represent their family values and appeal to health conscience foodies.
We started where the company began; Brunswick. From here came the name NOYA (or North of the Yarra). It's fitting to cement the brand in the roots as now they are stocked all over Australia and the world.

A US Beauty Salon that gives no fuzz.
Laser Away have 48 beauty salons across the USA. In an industry dominated by before & afters pictures and intimidating equipment our challenge was to make the unglamorous glamorous.
Social strategy, social management and influencer outreach.
We created a social strategy centered around the concept of #teamLA and No Fuzz Given.
Traditionally beauty procedures like laser hair removal and botox aren’t talked about, let alone shared across social. To combat this we utilised creative content, influencers and celebrities to create a community of women not afraid to talk and show the treatments they were having done.
From images with LA branding to videos mid-treatment, this strategy removed the fear and mystery of laser and created content for us to utilise across social while simultaneously generating a want and need for these treatments amongst the community. The strategy saw their Instagram page grow to 84.8K followers.

Most baby foods companies seem to think that parent’s only speak in baby talk. They highlight all the benefits of their product for the child and talk in a sing song voice. We built on this to speak to the parents about the benefits to them of using Raised Real, such as the convenience, and knowing exactly what is in each food pack. Plus we talked to them like adults. Turns out parents like that and investors do to with Raised Real raising $5million in their series A funding round.

Copy Rollout (website)
We created a name and tone that walked its talk. A brand that didn’t talk about imagination, but actually had one. One that would stand out amongst the competition, appealing equally to parents and children: Cattywampus. It’s what happens when an elephant has purple hands and green toes. It’s the sound a flower makes when it turns into a spaceship. It’s a plane that can talk, in Spanish. It’s all gone Cattywampus. As it should; in the imagination’s playground.
