Hive Porcelain


photography, social media

Hive Porcelain offers personalized porcelain, as well as other unique personalized gifts. They create in a private studio in the beautiful, tree-lined York Chester Historic District in Gastonia, North Carolina. We worked with them to help them transition from a retail location to an online retailer and wholesaler. Merryman Cassels, the owner, was really defining her brand and who Hive Porcelain was during this time. We photographed content for their social media, website, and advertising for Garden and Gun Magazine. We also did a social media boost campaign to raise Hive’s brand awareness and online sales.

From the Client

Working with GarlandBurks is a dream! I hired Heather and Walter after observing their integrity, passion, and effective action on a local issue. They do not disappoint! Hive Design and Porcelain’s social media presence and engagement skyrocketed under their strategic management. Their beautiful content creation integrates seamlessly to my website further enhancing the continuity of my brand. This team’s direct communication makes it easy to effectively co-create in growing a successful business.
