HTC Feature

HTC: Pushing the Power of One

In the crowded mobile device market, HTC champions independent spirits and tastemakers, empowering users to think of their digital lives in the same way they do everything else: Set the trend. Lead, don't follow. Swift couldn’t have been more eager to partner with HTC to support this ethos by providing comprehensive social media services from strategy and content creation to global community management.   
Evolution Fresh

Evolution Fresh

In the world of fruit and vegetable juicing, ‘cold pressed’ is a hot commodity. But we wanted to give it meaning outside of high quality nutrition, to stand for great choices that help our community #PressOn. So we took to social media, identifying and rewarding thousands of fans and would-be fans with a free bottle of Evolution Fresh. The result was not just enthusiasm about juice, but a deeply engaged community celebrating the healthy ways that life is fun. 
Starbucks Alt

Starbucks: Siren Stories

Swift has partnered with Starbucks for over a year and a half, delivering integrated digital and social strategy, concepts, content and execution for their seasonal campaigns. Our passion for authentic storytelling, and good coffee, align perfectly with the brand’s sincere dedication to beverages that bring happiness to people’s lives. Highlights include creating their summer #sipface campaign blending social, website, banner and email, celebrating Pumpkin Spice Latte's 10 year anniversary in the fall, multiple campaigns for VIA and launching the #sharejoy campaign to ring in the holiday season.
Swift Case Study: Outshine

OUTSHINE: RAISING THE BAR IN DIGITAL

Is there anything better than a juicy, icy fruit bar? We don’t think so. When Dreyers called on us to refresh Outshine’s digital and social presence, we couldn’t wait to bring our expertise to the table. As Outshine’s digital Agency of Record, we’re reimagining the brand’s website, social strategy, display units, partnerships and loyalty program. “Making it sticky” never tasted so good.

Other Projects

Legacy Health

Legacy Health’s website has become an important resource for patients and providers alike throughout Oregon and southwest Washington. Swift created a responsive site optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile. Built on Sitecore, we migrated all 2,000+ pages to a new CMS platform and implemented search optimization strategy. Swift also launched a multi-platform mobile application called MobileMed for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. MobileMed provides a searchable database of medical test procedures and guidelines for providers.

Embassy Suites Waikiki

In an increasingly competitive tourism environment, Embassy Suites needed to better showcase the beauty and amenities of their Waikiki property. We redesigned their website and launched localized versions in Japan and Korea to highlight their location, features, promotions and the services they offer. We also added personality through copywriting and a more welcoming design. Swift continues to provide strategic support with site improvements and recommendations based on monthly analytics reviews and analysis.

REI

REI is redefining the outdoor experience for a new generation of socially-connected adventurers. Naturally, Swift jumped at the chance to partner with them, indulging our passion for the outdoors and our expertise with the millennial audience. The ongoing relationship has allowed us to deliver creative strategy and execution for a series of integrated seasonal campaigns that span everything from social channels to in-store display to e-commerce.

Nike Golf

Nike Golf’s global community contains some of the most dedicated fans in the world. To them, every detail matters. Tasked with global community management, social strategy and creative, we’re thrilled to partner with Nike Golf to amplify these key details. From new product launches, to The Masters and game tips, the goal is to deliver content that ignites golfers everywhere. By always looking through the lens of the athlete, we create a holistic social experience that only they can deliver.

Wildfang

Tomboy fashion, transformed. It's tough to deny the wild-eyed passion of style visionaries. We paired up with Portland-based Wildfang to design and build a true cultural destination as powerful as their take on menswear for women. Wildfang’s singular aesthetic is alive and kicking in the sleek, fully responsive eCommerce website and lifestyle blog we created. Vibrant personality and engaging social content are everything to these bow-tied trendsetters. We're proud to be part of their pack.

Nike Digital Sport

As a team of tech and fitness enthusiasts, we appreciate the huge enterprise that is Nike+ (and many of us are avid users). We partnered with Nike Digital Sport to revamp their support site, creating a reimagined hub to assist a community 11+ million athletes strong. To make matters more exciting, we made sure the site was localized in 17 languages and optimized for mobile web. Questions about Nike+? We know a few folks who can help.
