The Problem

Osgoode Marley enjoys an exceptional reputation as a maker of classic leather goods designed with style, durability, and craftsmanship, as well as strong retail partnerships. In order to develop a strong e-commerce presence, Osgoode recognized the necessity of an online shopping experience as meticulously crafted as their own bags, as well as a brand presence inclusive of the tastes of Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z consumers.

When a client’s products look as good as Osgoode’s do, it’s not hard to snap a few pretty pics. Catchfire’s visual strategy, however, was about presenting Osgoode’s products in targeted ways unique to each platform and audience.
