Not only did the influencers post about Tame The Beast but several of them also featured an additional giveaway on their blog/social media. The campaign reached 180K+, received 17k Likes, and increased followers by +95%. Our Tame The Beast campaign was such a success that many of the influencers asked to be contacted again for future opportunities.

Placing A Hidden Venue Back On The Map

 

The RUINS was established in 1993, by the time that Uncommon Cartography was contacted the venue had become a secret a little too well kept. We immediately set to work by launching a creative focus group which included restaurant industry veterans, a data scientist, a philanthropist, a writer and more. The feedback from the thought leaders led to the development of an action plan which included this photo shoot - a collaboration which brought together an incredible group of 16+ Seattle creatives on the rise! Did we mention that shortly after the shoot, the venue was featured in the Seattle Met and on the cover of the December issue?!

A Ballard bar with a story to tell and food to savor.

 

Brunswick and Hunt is a cozy bar in Ballard with quite a story. The bar and the painting it sits across from have been together for 100 years which is the perfect example of the fact that there are more than a few stories hidden beneath the surface of this establishment.  The bar is located at the end of the same street as The Fat Hen and Delancy, who both seem to get a lot of love, but the local press has neglected Brunswick and Hunt. Uncommon Cartography kicked off the project by partnering with Danny Owens for fresh photography of the amazing food followed by bringing in a series of food bloggers and influencers to amplify efforts reaching a new audience of 100k+ for a 10% growth in sales.

A Series Of Campaigns With A Local Artist

 

Uncommon Cartography stumbled upon Rebekah J Designs at a pop up in a Ballard boutique. We immediately fell in love with her jewelry and her authentic spirit. Before we knew it we had incorporated her jewelry into a photo shoot for Precept Winery, and that was just the beginning. We feel so privileged to work with such strong and
inspiring individuals.
