The Challenge

Descente has had a reputation within the outdoor industry as a brand for an older demographic. Hoping to shed the label of a brand for "grandpa pulling groomers", they came to us looking for help in the creation of a more youthful look and feel that would appeal to a wider, and younger, target market.

Our Solution

Creative Direction

We wanted to help Descente emphasize not only their technology and proven excellence, but also establish them as a premier, high-quality brand within the ski outfitter industry. Utilizing simple typography and image-focused design, we helped establish an upscale look and feel for their product lines.

We extended Descente's new creative direction to their website and ecommerce platform, helping them update their existing web properties and create a consistent brand message across all interactive platforms and devices.

The Results

10.1% Increase for Average Time on Site

31.4% Decrease in Bounce Rate

We have a very technical product at Descente and pride ourselves in the materials and fit that goes into every piece we make. Redirect helped us tell that story through our content, while creating a very interactive design and look and feel for our website.
