The target audience for blue boutique is contemporary, eclectic, savvy, uptown chic meets downtown fashionista. The retail environment is modern, earthy, clean, textural, light and intimate. The blue boutique brand ID included logo, tagline, outdoor signage, interior design direction and wall graphics, advertisements, closet cleanse program and hangtags. Copywriting by Robin Lohkamp
