Results 

Dockers & Demons is now a well established and recognised brand with strong presences on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

What I Did

I created the brand, designed the website and encouraged professional artists to share videos of classes and workshops for use by the public.  I ran Facebook ad campaigns and held weekly competitions to strengthen brand awareness.

Our regular competitions were well received with strong participation. The outcome of our story and art competitions resulted in a soft covered printed book that was released to the public.
