What was your biggest challenge before you started working with Crème Creative?

We were launching a premium product so we wanted - and needed - to make the most of our first ever shoot and social media content. Trying to promote high end products with photography and video isn’t as easy as it may seem – so we were so glad to find a dedicated fashion and footwear creative team that already had a proven track record and didn’t cost a fortune for the finished product you receive.

How did that challenge make you feel?

As we were a new brand we wanted to make maximum impact on our launch with the best quality images so we felt a little lost searching through various photographers until we stumbled across Crème one day while on Instagram.

What were you thinking when you decided to start working with Crème?

Hopeful and eager to see the final result, there wasn’t really any doubts when dealing with Emma and the team.

What changed after we started working together?

We had a great first impression when dealing with Emma and the rest of the team and continuously can’t fault Crème as a company to deal with and on a personal level, we were made to feel very welcome from the start and their input and creative ideas were totally in line with what we wanted from our shoot.

What would you say to somebody who is not sure about whether to start working with us?

I wouldn’t hesitate in making contact. Crème were fantastic to deal with, from the initial contact and mood board to the shoot day, everything was better than you can expect and I would challenge you to find any fault in the whole process.

Anything else you’d like to add?

We can’t wait to shoot our next products when the stock arrives with us!

What was your biggest challenge before you started working with Crème Creative?

  • We had our brand imagery shot by various photographers and the brand’s imagery was not consistent

  • Our social media was being outsourced however the posts were not consistent nor was their much care or creativity with posts and our social media following was not growing nor was their much reaction to the posts

  • Our online store was a very minimalistic and built on a standard theme and although it functioned well it lacked creativity

How did that challenge make you feel?

We were very busy managing other areas of the growing brand and were quite overwhelmed trying to get the companies we outsourced out photography/social media to take care and apply creativity to the photography and social media it was a constant source of unnecessary stress

What were you thinking when you decided to start working with Crème?

Creme had been used on an Ad-hoc basis for lookbooks and  Ecom imagery since our launch in 2015. Mallet’s business manager Lisa and Katie the director at Crème began a relationship in August 2017 when Katie shot a marketing campaign for the the AW18 marketing which was conceptualised by Katie.

Totally impressed by Katie’s creativity, professionalism and the huge amount of care taken with the campaign Lisa asked Katie to manage Mallet’s social media, handle all campaigns, creative projects and photography for the brand. There was apprehension of what would be delivered but this was soon met with a huge relief 3 weeks into the relationship when the social media performance rocketed and we had huge positive feedback on our campaigns.

What changed after we started working together?

  • The Creme team conceptualised every weeks social media posts with great care and original ideas always making themselves available to the Mallet team and working on growing the Mallet brand.

  • Our social media grew from a following of 63k at the takeover to 94.5k with easy to read and digest reporting to help us grow

  • The Ecom imagery was consistent and flawless.

  • Katie has always made herself available on every project and works closely with Lisa to grow the Mallet brand with exceptional and original concepts.

  • In October 2017 Katie quoted Mallet to overhaul the online store which was actioned in early 2018 the results were amazing and Katie put her whole creative heart into the project and Mallet now have an amazing online store that works flawlessly both visually and interactively. Katie will be handling any and all E-commerce projects in the future.

  • The Creme team now handle all Mallet’s creative from Lookbook’s to logo creation. Mallet can now focus on other areas of the brand knowing that we have a creative team that care for the brand as much as the Mallet team.

What would you say to somebody who is not sure about whether to start working with us?

You can completely trust the Creme team to represent your company with utmost care and professionalism with original creative ideas conceptualised by working hand and hand with you, they take a product or idea and deliver to you ideas that work for your brand.
