Showplace: Building a National Brand

By | Branding, Design, Marketing
Showplace Cabinetry knows all about building things. As an employee owned company, they’ve become the 13th largest cabinet manufacturer in the United States.

A Renegade Retail Marketing Plan

By | Marketing, Video
HS saddled up with our partners at Renegade Work and Western Store, and came up with a retail marketing plan to help them rope in more shoppers to their Sioux Falls location at the Empire Mall. We loved how their merchandise featured work and western wear that came together with rock ‘n roll flair, so we tailored their message to accentuate the fun clothing and accessories they sell in their store. We helped them develop and refine the voice of their brand, and we created a campaign featuring new radio, Pandora and TV spots, along with ads that will be...
