magic maker, natural visionary
In her formative years, Lilly found herself naturally falling into design through a myriad of mediums. She places a strong emphasis on continually clearing fear of failure and embracing the process of trial and error. For Lilly, growth is everything, potential is everywhere, and cultivating connection and community with people is the point. She first dove into design in the fashion industry, winning her high school fashion show two years in a row, going on to study at FIDM and FIT, interning for Rodarte in LA and competing in an annual fashion design competition in NYC. As she rerouted and shifted career pursuits toward Marketing and Entrepreneurship, she became a self-taught photographer. Along the way, Lilly has worked on graphic design projects for a local custom builder, captured Who What Wear’s collection launch for Target, and has crafted photo content for I Love Juice Bar, Little James, and Orangetheory Fitness. In her spare time, you can find Lilly in the kitchen whipping up some veggie tacos, painting instead of sleeping, or nose deep in a board game with friends.
The key to brand loyalty is value.
Establishing value, increasing value, sustaining value, retaining value, advertising value, communicating value… and so on. You get it.
The value your product and/or service provides is why the customer continues to come to you. Knowing the ‘why’ helps craft your evolving ‘how’ and the loyalty grows from there.
Brand loyalty requires value to exist, visuals to be recognizable and cohesive, and consistency to carry them all the way home.
We set out to create a mockup for an Interior Design concept called “Studio 27.” The name emulates innovation, sparking a sense of design experimentation and discovery. As seen in the mood board, the firm is eccentric when it comes to design. Unique colors, shapes and patterns are some of the main focal points of the rooms created. This plays into the overall brand as Studio27 remains selective over the projects and clients they choose to work with. When you see the room, you will know it was the work of Studio27.
When we think of storytelling we think of the obvious: words. Words that are shared to recall an event with a friend, words that are written into a journal for one’s future self, words that are typed in courier, size 12, single spaced on the script of a film. The power of storytelling is found in its ability to evoke emotion and move an audience. Film is known best for this power of storytelling.
