Case Study: L’Occitane

L'Occitane PhotographyFrench skincare brand L’Occitane capitalises on its heritage in romantic Provence by retailing a range of beautifully-packaged products that are appealing, natural and authentic.

f1 colour worked closely with L’Occitane to undertake digital, in-house photography of the full range of products, according to Marketing Manager, Stacey Trinh.

“Obviously our brand heritage is vitally important to us, which is why we wanted to work with a company that is able to provide first-class imagery,” Stacey explains. “The f1 team provided digital photography services and also post-production retouching and colour balancing – this provided our marketing team with a set of quality images that we can access without limitation or extra cost, using f1’s online asset management system. We were then able to retain these photographic assets for future web projects, catalogues and point of sale materials, safe in the knowledge that the imagery is optimised for all media channels.

“In addition, f1 colour printed the collateral for our marketing projects and also provided location video production at the L’Occitane Head Offices in Cavendish Place, London.

“The multi-service offering that f1 Colour offers makes working with them an easy choice.”
