Integrated Agency Bests Wide Field for Major Digital Assignment 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/13 --   After an
extensive review of agencies, Sephora, the world's best-known
specialty beauty retailer, selected Duncan/Channon to design the
website for its new Marc Jacobs Beauty collection. The site goes live
on August 9, 2013, following the launch of a teaser site
(http://marcjacobsbeauty.com), also designed by Duncan/Channon.  
"The Duncan/Channon team came to us with the most inspiring site
concepts and demonstrated a deep understanding of what we want to
accomplish," said Connie Young, senior marketing director for
Sephora. "I truly feel that they are an extension of our team." 
Said Mike Lemme, Duncan/Channon partner and chief creative officer,
who, along with creative director Andrea Bozeman, is leading the
Sephora team: "To be working on a major design project with two major
brands world-famous for design, Sephora and its partner Marc Jacobs
International, is a designer's dream. Add in that this assignment is
another validation of Duncan/Channon's digital chops and integrated
strategy, and you'll begin to understand how proud and excited we
are."
