How We Built It: The Inspiration Behind the Honest. Wild. Beautiful. Tribe Insiders Program

We are beyond excited to announce the launch of our Honest. Wild. Beautiful. Tribe and Tribe Insiders Program today – an Annmarie Skin Care membership program brimming with exclusive perks, experiences, education, and so much more. Made with love, intention, and our customers at the forefront, we can't wait to share all that's in store with you. 

We wanted to give you a peek into the inspiration and creation that went down behind the scenes of our new program – here's a few of our team members take on the tribe. 

Chandra

I was inspired by the council of sagacious elders found in the majority of tribes in ancient civilizations; this is a group of members that are highly respected within their circle who are often believed to have a connection with the spiritual world and the divine. They are typically viewed as wise and almost omniscient, having special communicative skills to translate important messages they receive to the rest of their community. I see these elders as those who are not just unique, but active seekers and sharers of truth, who feel deeply connected to their tribe.

As I began my design process, I started to connect these notions of information, light, uniqueness, and spirituality. I immediately thought of galaxies and knew I wanted to incorporate this cosmic imagery somehow, but wanted to first come up with a suitable color palette to kickoff the design process. I came up with a dark forest green accented by a subdued metallic gold to evoke a sense of regal earthiness from the combination of the two. Then I brought in more of the cosmic imagery, contrasting the dreamy speckles of light with the lush, robust quality of leaf imagery.

I ultimately wanted to balance the ethereal reality of thought and communication with the deepness of tight-knit connection and cultivation. And with everything combined, this became the final look to visually represent the Tribe Insiders.

Launching our Tribe has been something we've worked on and thought about for the past few years. It began by finding the perfect application that could faciliate our needs and could allow us to create a top tier for our subscription customers. As our company's designated integration specialist I helped to ensure that this program would connect with everything else we do here at ASC. I helped with overseeing implementation and helped to support the team down to the final details. It was really special to be able to work on such a far reaching program that I hope will leave our customers feeling more engaged and connected with us. We hope you love it <3

When I found out that we were re-launching our subscription program and wanted to do a private Facebook group, I was really excited for the opportunity to provide our Tribe Insiders with an intimate and safe place to ask questions and chat about all things green beauty. It also posed a challenge—what are we going to be able to offer this group that we aren't already offering our Facebook Page? We have some exciting things in store and I can't wait to watch this community come together and grow, it will be very special.

As the Marketing Manager at ASC I have absolutely LOVED working on this project. It has brought together different members of the team in order to accomplish our vision of our Honest Wild Beautiful Tribe and Insiders. For our Insiders group we wanted to create a community of people who love our products, ethos, and convenience of getting products replenished and sent directly to their doorsteps.

As an added bonus there are special insider perks that we carefully crafted for our customers (surprise boxes, early samples, eBooks, and more!). Our Honest Wild Beautiful Tribe (previously our loyalty rewards program) also got an update with additional opportunities to earn and redeem points. We hope you love our Honest Wild Beautiful Tribe and Insiders programs as much as we do!

I was tasked with creating a lot of the language behind the Tribe, so I focused on clarity and cohesion, community and connection. I wanted all of the copy to be clear to our audience and completely in-tune with Chandra's unique vision for the project as a whole. It's really been a pleasure to grow and work closely with my entire team on this, and even more exciting to invite the people we know and love into our little circle.

I curate the emails for ASC so when I heard about Honest. Wild. Beautiful. Tribe Insiders I knew we had have something different to show our community. There's a lot of thought for what goes into creating this special group and we need to tell our Insiders as much as we can about their benefits and what it means to be an Insider or they just won't know. Coupled with Chandra's beautiful rebranding, I also dug deep into what emails come from which platform so that we could get new, clear copy and brand images. The details are granular in this project, but it's exactly the type of thing this (Insiders Black Ops) team is perfect for!
