Website Redesign + Content Development + Social Strategy - We redeveloped, rebranded & created a platform designed to introduce the newest wave of comedians, creators and comedy stories happening. More importantly we had two goals: turn comedy into a lifestyle experience & create a home for the casual comedy fan. Through daily updates, exclusive interviews, original content, live events, merchandise, podcasts & editorials; Our efforts gave us continuous recognition in the press from The Washington Post to TMZ and growth across all social platforms.
Album Design + Art Direction + Website - is Las Vegas rapper and we love rap. We collaborated to create a responsive, clean design for his web real estate. With social integration and clean design, JimmyHardaway.com allows the listener to get to know Jimmy and the entire city of Sin City.
Website Design + Ecommerce - The sneaker twins needed an online presence to match their newly opened retail store for exclusive sneakers. We built a minimal, user friendly, easy to navigate site making the checkout process easy.
Digital Brand Management - We basically followed Steve Harvey around for a year+. Our responsibility was his digital content, strategy, relationships & creative. Halfway documenting his journey during our time, halfway making him as cool online as he is in person. He works really hard & he doesn't sleep. Yes we shot the jump video, yes we published the Family Feud video, yes we posted the Christmas spoof post (when he made the beauty pageant mistake). We also built a lifestyle site that averaged 2M visitors month & helped him raise 1.5M dollars for his charity foundation.

Emerging 100 of Atlanta Scholarship AwardsContent Production + Direction
Content Production + Direction - Working with the Emerging 100 is great on so many levels. This night was dedicated to the young men who don't come from the greatest environments but decided they wanted their world to be bigger. The Emerging 100 of Atlanta honored 6 students for their hard work and dedication with scholarships paid for by numerous corporations who are heavily active in the community. We also created an overarching video that discusses why the emerging 100's mentorship is so important in bridging the game for these young men.
Puma & Fader MagazineEvent Photography + Recap
Event Photography + Recap - Music has this amazing ability to bring us back to specific moments in time. J. Cole's classic mixtape, "Friday Night Lights" happens to be one. Young college kids trying to make that transition from learning the tools to using the tools with all the doubts & insecurities in between - this free album told that whole story. So when he announced the third rendition of his Dollar and A Dream Tour featuring his classic was making a stop in Atlanta, as a huge fan of his music and rise to stardom, we had already penciled ourselves in as attendees to the $1 fan friendly show. What started as an average day as a casual fan - ended up being an opportunity to assist withcoverage for both brands. Of course we jumped at the chance and took full advantage of the access.
