A Plant Influencer Gets A Digital Home 

BRAND STRATEGY, BRAND IDENTITY, Photo Curation, WEBSITE DESIGN, & E-Commerce integration 

the scope:

Phoebe of Welcome to the Jungle Home was running a successful plant-focused Instagram account with around 20K followers. As she began to sell her one-of-a-kind plant tarp product, followers expressed frustration with her sales method which included a Google Sheet and a personal Venmo account. 

With plans to expand her product line, we worked together to develop the brand's visual identity, which all came together on a new website with e-commerce features.

—There was no consistent brand experience

An Expanded Resources Page:

A Media Kit Page:

Users began asking for links to products beyond the Amazon storefront. We plan to build out separate sections for affiliate-linked products in the categories of Home, Style, and Gardening as Phoebe expands as an influencer.

Instead of sending a static PDF Media Kit, I proposed a web page highlighting social media stats, email metrics, brand collaboration case studies, and examples of press features. This way, the client has full control over updating the metrics and it encourages viewers to stay on the website.
