Case Study: Myrkur “M”

GOALS

Myrkur is the Black Metal project from Danish artist Amalie Bruun. In the past, Bruun released music under a handful of pseudonyms and Myrkur was the least well-known of all of her artistic projects, so we set out to ensure the release of her latest album, M [Relapse Records], would draw attention to this creative outlet in particular. We aimed to build a strong digital presence for her on all social media platforms, help her communicate with her most passionate fans, and create a steady stream of content for her to share throughout the campaign.  (more…)
