Case Study: Ana Claudia Design


When they came to us, Ana Claudia Design was transitioning from mostly New York City-based work to seeking design work in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.

They knew that social media would be key for getting their name out there in the area, forging new connections and winning business.

With such a stunning Brazilian-influenced design aesthetic focusing on custom pieces and artwork, they wanted to make sure the intricacies of their brand were represented.


Wingnut Social created an Instagram strategy focused more on engagement than follower growth to help forge authentic connections. We positioned the brand as being ahead of trends, creating interiors that inspire well-being for those who dwell there.

As a full-service Instagram management client, we supplemented their colorful original design images with bright art and artistic furnishings and textiles. Their feed features local Hudson Valley makers to engage with the community and use key hashtags to reach locals as well as growing their account with design enthusiasts.

We researched hashtags extensively to create posts with viral performance in order to gain the largest exposure to non-followers possible.


The Ana Claudia Design Instagram feed was stunning with many viral posts. The first three months saw an explosion on their account.

They achieved a 1,275% increase in engagement and a 738% increase in impressions, meaning that more people were seeing and interacting with their account than ever before. Their follower growth rate was higher than all of their competitors and more than double the average rate of their competitors.

Their social media reflected their brand values and created a platform for connections in the Hudson Valley area, more press and local opportunities such as participation in design showhouses.

Lovely to work with and always reliable. It’s great for a small business to not have the burden of managing and posting on social media. I really appreciate their services!
