Vivid Candi Case Study

The Sunset Restaurant

We created an aspirational online presence for The Sunset Restaurant.

The Sunset Restaurant is a modern American beachfront restaurant located in the heart of Malibu. The restaurant is famous for its 365 days of oceanview sunsets. Prior to 2018, The Sunset restaurant had almost no social media presence. The website wasn’t user-friendly, didn’t express the restaurant’s appeal, and definitely wasn’t working in their favor. Our agency implemented a cohesive, full-service strategy that would create a strong digitally branded identity and make The Sunset Restaurant a destination for people all over the world.
