After developing the Brand Book, I led a naming workshop where we arrived at the name Built Property Co. This classic, strong new name communicates the brand values both in style and tone.

Architectural and Lifestyle Photography Guidelines

For architectural photography, shoot at an angle that elevates the building to fine art. Emphasize luxury and highlight design details while composing high end imagery. Reinforce the level of quality and sophistication with occasional B&W imagery. For lifestyle photography, showcase an idealized setting for the target customer and include an anonymous human presence in the photos to spark the imaginations of the audience and prompt them to insert themselves into this visual story. Capture foliage, brick, wood, or light sources for added warmth as needed.


Social Media Content Strategy

The content strategy defines what and when to post on social media. From content categories and storytelling concepts to strategic hashtags, this guide addresses how to use social media as a powerful tool to connect with your audience, grow relationships, and increase brand awareness. While designing Built Co’s social media content strategy, I kept commercial and residential tenants and investors top of mind.

With categories such as Eduction, Inspiration, Behind the Scenes, and Community, the content works to establish expertise, inspire longing, build trust, and foster belonging between the brand and their audience.
