SERVICES & CASE STUDIES
Case Study: Face Forward
Charged with developing a slate of digital content for NBCU, Maurice led NBCU's Digital Lab and coordinated with our Snapchat partners to create, develop, and pilot, Face Forward, a new and irreverent evolution on the traditional makeover show. Averaging over 5 million views within 48 hours per episode, Face Forward went on to become one of the most popular shows on Snapchat. With its successful Abercrombie & Fitch brand integration, Face Forward drove a 4.5% lift in purchase intent and 40K people into stores...and it even earned a 2018 Webby Award!
Truth is stranger than Fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
