Backbone Media recently had the pleasure of working with Carnelian Cooks for our client TINCUP Whiskey. Over the course of the two campaigns we worked on together, they created and delivered around 100 outstanding video and static assets combined for TINCUP’s Instagram. 

First off, it was an absolute pleasure to work with them. They are super easygoing, organized, always submitted deliverables on time, and are true experts in their craft. The client and the team at Backbone were impressed with how well every asset matched TINCUP’s brand aesthetic and vibe. It was clear that each separate cocktail and food recipe was creatively thought through, taking a unique and delicious approach to how you can incorporate TINCUP Whiskey in your everyday food and cocktail endeavors.  

Overall, both Backbone Media and TINCUP Whiskey would highly recommend Carnelian Cooks to anyone looking for exceptional quality, creativity, and professionalism in their social media content. We are grateful for their exceptional work and look forward to working with them again in the future. Cin Cin and Bon Appétit! 

First off, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Elise & Evan.
