Lifestyle brand Community 54 has secured Nuscreen as their digital agency of record.
TORONTO, April 13, 2015 /CNW/ - Named one of the top 50 stores in the world by Complex Magazine in 2013, Community 54 has built a cult-like following beyond their physical retail locations in Toronto and New York City, attracting a wide audience including famous musical talents and sports personalities.
Known for creating strong in-store experiences with an exuded effort on the physical retail environment, Community 54 is ready to take the tested business model of brick and mortar success to a new level by expanding their online marketing efforts.
Nuscreen will be responsible for managing digital strategy, UX design, e-commerce and web development. The agency will also be devoting efforts to turning Community54.com into a full-fledged merchandised online store that connects content and commerce, while maintaining the integrity and brand values at the forefront.
While Nuscreen has strong experience in e-commerce and building brands and revenue via increased online sales and targeted consumer engagement, the agency was hired more for their alignment with Community 54's core values and shared vision to build the brand.
"The Nuscreen team was the right fit for us – these guys aren't like other agencies. They are modern, relevant and have digital in their DNA. They care about our brand and our customers in a real way." - Joel Reilly, co-owner at Community 54.
Nuscreen will be working together with Community 54 to uncover opportunities and develop strategies for exponential online growth.

We work with businesses we're passionate about and that we believe in. We care about what our clients care about. Our approach is simple: Set goals. Reach them. Repeat." – Meg Button, Partner at Nuscreen.
