CH2 Magazine Local Marketing Geniuses | The Lills Design

It’s been a wild ride these last nine years! We met in Connecticut in 2005 and a month later we moved to South Carolina to begin our first design company, hand-screen printing original artwork on organic tees. We worked in sales together, jumped to NYC for some eye-opening advertising perspective, bounced to Florida for some priceless life lessons and made it full circle back to SC in 2010, where we said “I Do” and began The Lills Design.

Through every adventure, challenge and experience, we learned something vital to our life and ability to create. As The Lills, we discovered together, our endless opportunity to unite and create positive imagery, good energy and inspirational messages through our work and life.

The Lills 4th Wedding Anniversary | Off Grid Tree House Adventure

For our fourth wedding anniversary we canoed 13 miles down the Edisto river to celebrate and stay in an off grid tree house with no electric or running water. The river trip was beautiful and the house was a treetop heaven. We made ourselves at home, bathed in the river, made food by the fire and used candles, torches and a handy flashlight at night. We felt at home, in peace and privacy and returned to “real life” reassured simple is the way to go.

Check out our adventure below:

Many thanks to Carolina Heritage Outfitters for a wonderful time!

Web Design for Highway 21 Drive In in Beaufort, SC

Did you know, there are only 350 Drive In Movie Theaters in the US and only 450 in the world? Times certainly do change and since movies today are nearly all produced in digital, all drive in theaters were recently forced to lose the old-school film projectors and replace them with expensive new digital projectors.

Many of America’s drive ins couldn’t afford to convert, but lucky for us in Beaufort, South Carolina, the Highway 21 Drive In was able to make the big change.

When we first heard of the local drive in we made it a point to check their website. It was outdated, there was no brand to be found and it turned out they had been using the same website layout for over a decade!

We were too excited to create the new brand and wanted to make sure it was as special as the drive in. Once we had the logo nailed down, we spent many hours creating custom graphic elements and scenes for the website. It was a wonderful chance to show off our skills and imagination.

On their old website, the drive in would simply post the movie covers to show what was playing. The Now Playing page was the biggest user-friendly move we made, allowing viewers to watch full movie trailers on the new website.

Continuing the brand and keeping it consistent, we designed rack cards, t-shirts and are now working on the new website for the up-and-coming Airport Drive In in Colombia, SC. Stay tuned!
