We were thrilled when Indigenous-women-owned beauty company, Prados, contacted us for product photography and a more functional e-commerce for their annual Indigenous day launches. Since then, we have helped maintain their e-commerce, and supported them with social media, consulting, and ad buying. NMCO even created a campaign video for their latest collection.

Concept & Approach

After developing the website, NMCO produced all of the product photography featured in Prados’s Matriarch catalog. This included hundreds of setups and photos, then thoughtfully edited for commercial use for platforms such as JC Penney and Thirteen Lune. NMCO also hired and directed professional models to sport the new collection for the website to further share their message of inclusivity. 

For their next campaign launch, Sagrado, the production was basically rinse and repeat. We updated the website with the new campaign look, took additional photography and even collaborated with the Prados team and Darklisted Photography on their set to create a campaign launch video written and directed in-house. Now that’s team work.

NMCO helped debuted the campaign while founder Cece celebrating her Best in Beauty title at Allure Magazine.  NMCO later trained up Prados staff so they could continue to connect to their fanbase and operate day to day promotions.
