Woodwerds was a local start-up that wanted to achieve an online presence as a lifestyle brand for the millennial adventurer. Their main product line is wooden and bamboo sunglasses, with goals of branching out into additional clothing and other wooden fashion accessories.
The Woodwerds brand operates in the hyper-competitive e-commerce industry. They were concerned that without the right brand and message, their product would get lost in the sea of endless online options. In addition to that, they did not want to ride the “Detroit wave” that was becoming watered down due to oversaturation. They needed a brand that could achieve nationwide reach, while maintaining a personal brand relationship with their audience.
In the end, we delivered a logo to Woodwerds in two different applications, both recognizable as one overall brand presence. The full version with the Woodwerds “W” and supporting copy “wearables, dry goods” was designed for retail packaging and web application. The “W” was distinguishable enough to be used as a stand-alone lettermark on their sunglasses and social media outlets.
The brand was focused around the statement “DO MORE”. The story is now developed around this statement was geared at empowering individuals to do the things in life that they have always wanted to do; whether that was founding a tech start-up, going on a 2-month kayaking trip in Colorado, or facing your fear of heights by skydiving. The point is to do more of what you love to do, and do it often.
Our web team went to work on developing an ecommerce environment geared at conversions. Through A/B testing, we found it most effective to place the Woodwerds “featured projects” above the fold on the homepage on the website, and then utilize lifestyle imagery and copy below the fold to tell the “DO MORE” story. We also went through an extensive analysis on traffic flow and shopping cart abandonment, and made adjustments accordingly to increase conversions.
These efforts were supported via social media in curating outdoor lifestyle content that built the overall Instagram following to over 2,000 users in the United States within 2 weeks. A majority of our focus was connecting with micro-influencers in the action sports and fashion community, and running contests on their page to drive direct website traffic and sales to www.woodwerds.com.
