Natural Skincare Products: An Ecommerce Store Success Story
Portia Ella is a high-performing beauty store with a focus on ethical and natural skincare. Created in 2014 by Quebec-born Julie Michaud Angelatos, what once was a small e-commerce website coalesced with other like-minded Canadian entrepreneurs to turn Portia Ella into a national Ethical Beauty retailer.
Hiilite’s team collaborated with Portia Ella to augment the expertise of their in-house creative director. Working behind the scenes, we enhance their marketing creative by optimizing their content so it can more easily be found by search engines and, as a result, eager customers. We also assisted with brand awareness campaigns and the refinement and launch of their updated brand.

Through a process of collaboration, Hiilite’s team worked with Portia Ella to update their logo and refine their existing brand. The result was a sense of consistency across online platforms and a logo design that was better reflective of their organic pro-organic ethical values.
