Borboleta Aftercare Videos

Posted by

Borboleta Beauty built their business on selling lash extensions directly to professional lash artists. However, they saw a unique opportunity to branch into consumer products with aftercare products for daily use. Hint art directed the photography and video for their first consumer targeted campaign “Aftercare that feels like skincare.” The campaign was an instant success, with a 100% boost in sales, selling out multiple times in the first six months.

The Westgate Hotel Website

Located on the edge of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, The Westgate Hotel is a practically untouched 1970s interpretation of the legendary Palace of Versailles. Its distinctively European ambiance is conjured by French antiques, Flemish and French tapestries, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, exquisite French cuisine, and heartfelt hospitality.

As part of the Grand America Hotels and Resorts family, The Westgate needed a website that integrated well with the family of properties, while also retaining their signature brand of hospitality. Our approach was based on three areas of focus: 1. Develop a strategic brand platform that accurately positions the Westgate in the crowded San Diego market, 2. Refresh their brand image with photography that showcases their enchanting environment, 3. Create a website that feels standardized with other properties but customized to The Westgate’s unique experience.

You & Yours Vodka and Gin

Posted by

You & Yours Distilling Co. is located in the East Village of sunny San Diego, California. They are a destination distillery, tasting room, event space and cocktail bar, complete with cocktail program highlighting their signature craft spirits: Y&Y Vodka (a classic vodka) and Sunday Gin (a citrus-noted gin).

They were founded by Laura Johnson, who is one of a handful of female head distillers in the country. Y&Y is a direct result of Laura not being hired as a distiller in a male-dominated industry. So she created her own, and built it around the idea of bringing people together. Laura describes You & Yours’ aesthetic as “approachable yet aspirational. I wanted it to be inviting and pleasing to the eye, yet still be a bit eclectic, relaxed yet sophisticated.”

The packaging reflects the authenticity of the brand. Each spirit was designed to be unique, drawing inspiration from their distinct ingredients. Sunday Gin: citrus-forward with notes of fresh florals and herbs. Y&Y Vodka: a blend of single-source distillates of corn, potato, and grape. The result was a visual system which allows for each spirit family to stand on its own while tying back to You & Yours Distilling Co. family.
