HOLLAND AMERICA LINE

Creative Director, Copywriter

When the client came to us, they had two styles of work on social media: low-quality user-generated content and heavily-branded sales videos.

 

To elevate creative and create a deeper connection with the audience, we developed a suite of concepts that highlight cultural nuance, ladder up to the brand's Higher Purpose, uncover destination highlights, and frame beautiful landscapes as moments of wanderlust.

 

By diving deep into audience demographics and platform behavior, we also gave each channel a distinct purpose, built a library of higher-quality UGC, and established a sophisticated, storied brand voice.
