OoOtie - OoOtie Bow Ties
OoOtie Branding & Social Content
OoOtie (pronounced Oh-tie) came to us to help define their e-commerce brand. Bow ties are cool, so we jumped at the chance to brand OoOtie, the Boston-based custom bow tie maker with MIT roots. In order to revamp their visual identity and create a digital content strategy for this lifestyle brand, we needed to layout a plan that included logo designs, branded photography for their social channels and website (both prop-based and with models), short videos, gifs, and animations. This massive content outline all had to fit with their positioning in the accessories market and with their specific buyer personas.
With a series of educational content videos, consistent social content creation, product videos, and photography, we equipped OoOtie with the tools to establish themselves as the go-to bow tie provider for shoppers in the market for a cool, quirky, and unique look. We created their logo to stand out in all kinds of media settings, giving it a slightly different look for each platform, and developed a logo mark designed to be used when the brand needs to be compact and essential. Being an e-commerce brand, we focused on creating content around holidays and specific buying times throughout the year to maximize OoOtie's sales. To celebrate the changing seasons and moods we created playful tie animations for important tie-wearing occasions like Back-to-School and Formal Events. And to coincide with OoOtie's humorous brand positioning, we created a rap-style parody video titled "How To Tie a Bow Tie", which currently has 4.6k views on their Facebook page (scroll down to check-out the video, you won't be disappointed!).
Now, are you ready for these numbers!? In total we created:
- 4 How-To Videos
- 1 Behind The Scenes Video
