Instagram Visual Content Strategy case study
I was brought on as the first ever Design Director specifically for Social and Digital design. A large part of my role was pitching concepts and strategies for each social channel. For Instagram, the Content Strategist and I worked together to create a compelling story month by month. Each month's content would consist of a few different themes, that related to seasonality, product launches, new campaigns, inventive ways to re-tout existing product (like best sellers and fan favorites), and User Generated Content. Below is an example of our concept and examples of execution for the month of June.
Featuring product is essential. The fun part about working with a brand with a long history, is digging through the archives to find content that is both fresh (but maybe was just used during a launch), and heritage. For this case study, which was for the month of June, we focussed on product that would be seasonally appropriate–bronzers, illuminating powder, tinted moisturizer, and so forth. Here I used a mix of existing brand photography, UGC product photography, and some creations of my own.
