Ahoy, matey! Pirate Energy, a cocktail-inspired line of energy drinks, has partnered alongside the HMG Creative team to create a highly custom ssh client , energetic and industry-disrupting web experience. A division of Blue Matrix Labs – the brainchild of Kendall Harter – Pirate Energy brings the party to your taste buds with five tasty, healthy and outright exciting energy shots.
In an effort to break into the market in a revolutionary way, we crafted a carefully formulated digital experience for Pirate and its customers. At the nucleus, a responsive, informative and user engaging site with custom animations and an easy-to-navigate user experience. But the site wouldn’t be as enthralling if it wasn’t for the compelling copy. Aligning ourselves with the party theme of the brand, we used a tongue-in-cheek approach to content creation. Using hilarious pirate innuendos, we created informative product-specific copy while portraying the quirky company culture and instilling it into the readers’ minds.

Mark Twain had Huckleberry Finn in the late 1800’s. You (read: everyone) had the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in middle school. And in 2014, we all have Huckleberry- the leading website for professional quality facial treatments delivered to your door.
But let’s rewind a bit to Chapter 1 of our Huckleberry tale. It was a warm September afternoon when Joyce, the founder of Huckleberry, and I sat down to discuss her business idea. A Princeton grad and entrepreneur at heart, Joyce is no stranger to determining her goals and carefully executing on her plans to reach them. The goal on this particular day: world domination. Kidding, she chose to save that for 2015. The idea she approached me with was simple: provide high-end products and services at an affordable price to everyday folks in the convenience of their own home. What type of products and services you ask? The types you’d find at your favorite luxury spa- facial treatments. In the comfort of my own living room, you say? Yes indeed! But this plan needed a team that could deliver the functionality she envisioned in an easy-to-use platform and, for lack of a better word, badass website. Enter HMG Creative.

In a sales-driven world, it can be hard to remember that the majority of salespersons are not the run-of-the-mill wheeling and dealing sharks you may have heard of. In fact, the best salespersons are the complete opposite. They have mastered what the stereotypical salespeople have not: listening. Yes, you read that right- listening is the cornerstone to building a business relationship. Hell, it’s probably the foundation for any type of relationship but I’ll leave that for a future post.
