method has always been about purposeful design. But that ethos took on an ever deeper meaning when method partnered with Creative Growth, a non-profit arts center for adults with disabilities based in Oakland, California. As Director of Brand Voice, I developed the partnership messaging and ensured that it was consistently executed across all consumer touchpoints.
method + CREATIVE GROWTH
bareMinerals Stroke of Light
bareMinerals Stroke of Light Illuminating Eye Brightener was a brilliant addition to the brand's portfolio of eye concealers. As the Lead Copywriter, I was responsible for product naming and concept-to-counter messaging. The ultimate in-store goal was to drive awareness and trial of the entire concealer assortment and leverage peak bareMinerals foundation seasonality to link-sell new products.
People Against Dirty®
In 2012, method and Ecover joined forces to become People Against Dirty—two brands under one umbrella with the collective mission to pioneer a cleaner, greener future where doing business means doing good for all. As Director of Brand Voice, my job was to help articulate this mission and use the voice to inspire and empower company culture.
