As Brand and Marketing Director at Mod Op, I helped launch Baha Mar, a new Caribbean resort destination featuring three luxury hotels. We started with strategy and positioning, working our way up to a $25m global launch campaign and the tagline, 'Life Spectacular'. In the subsequent years, we served as the brand guardian and AOR, producing everything from omni-channel marketing campaigns to restaurant logos and in-room videos, all the way down to the resort maps they hand out to guests upon arrival.

launch campaign spots

I wrote and edited our launch spots, which were directed by The Wade Brothers. Our goal was to position Baha Mar as an intimate luxury resort experience, while elevating the overall perception of The Bahamas. ​​​​​​​

From magazine spreads to bus wraps to airport displays to Vegas billboards— we built brand awareness all across America. ​​​​​​​

digital marketing

Our digital campaign was honored during HSMAI 2019's Facebook Mobile Video Award for its highly targeted and sequential deployment of video ad content. 

branded content

From shareable social content to a 30 minute in-room video channel, we crafted stories to support the entire brand universe, including 3 hotels, a golf course, spa, and over 40 bars and restaurants.

We produced over 30 minutes of original in-room video content showcasing all of the resort amenities

Branded content was generated for every platform

brand guardianship

As Baha Mar's AOR, we oversaw every brand touchpoint including print collateral, wedding brochures, maps, in-room tablets, as well as brand guardianship via corporate identity and brand books.

We developed logos, signage, original photography, and video content for Baha Mar's many outlets and programs.
