Aurora Beauty provides hair, skin and nail treatments in a studio located in the Greater Cardiff area. Aurora had generated a decent clientele for their services, however they needed a more consistent PR strategy that was going to strengthen relationships with existing customers, whilst developing new ones. This project required a team to work through the CREATE, COMMUNICATE and CONNECT stages. Brand Audits, Web Design and Social Media Marketing culminated in the successful 3-week campaign known as Aurora Bloom.

The Aurora Bloom campaign was a celebration of the end of Winter, promoting treatments and therapies to help customers get ready for the upcoming Spring season.. A microsite was made to explain the campaign and monitor results, along with a new logo to distinguish Aurora Bloom activities. Aurora's original Facebook, Instagram and Twitter were retained to reach out to existing customers and ensure they could retain new ones once the campaign had concluded.
