Kat Von D Beauty is live and looking gorgeous. The new website was designed by D/C for world-renowned tattoo artist Kat Von D, and for Kendo Beauty Group, an LVMH company. Inspired by Kat’s tireless support of other makeup artists, the site is deeply collaborative, with products sitting side-by-side with user-generated photos and illustrations, as well as tweets and videos from the artist and her fans. Curated by Kat herself, KatVonDBeauty.com is a vibrant social newsfeed, as well as fresh product content, all cloaked in alluring, enigmatic glamour.
D/C also designed the Marc Jacobs Beauty site for Kendo and the Formula X site, which recently won an OMMA Award for Web Site Excellence.
