Clean Cuts installs its second Dolby Atmos mixing suite

Our new Dolby Atmos mixing suite now fully tuned up and sounding fantastic

Clean Cuts upgraded one of our 8 suites in our DC studio with Genelec monitors as a 7.1.4 Atmos configuration. If you’re unfamiliar with Dolby Atmos, it has the ability to create an immersive audio experience, with sound that moves and flows around you in three-dimensional space with its addition of ceiling speakers. That being said, listeners can enjoy a spatial experience on headphones as well.

While Dolby Atmos has long been associated with video projects…it’s in fact not just limited to visuals, opening up thrilling opportunities for podcasts and the like as well. The possibilities are limitless.

We are excited to offer our clients the opportunity to experience Dolby Atmos firsthand in our newly installed room. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, we highly recommend that you do so.

Did You Know Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 includes 7 ear-level speakers, 1 subwoofer channel, and 4 overhead speakers

Our Lady of Lourdes is a private Catholic school based in Bethesda, Maryland, serving pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. Gigawatt Group was approached by the school to design their new website, with the intended goal of making it look modern, mobile-friendly and user-centered.

Our team, led by Creative Director Jim McNulty, and Graphic Designer Yasmine Bouchlaghem, explored creative solutions to deliver an enhanced user experience for both the school’s faculty members and parents. The design process involved multiple phases from the discovery and user research to the creation of the prototypes and the website’s launch.

The team chose Squarespace as the hosting platform, based on its ease of use for future content authoring by the school administration, as well as its ability to integrate e-commerce into the site.  Gigawatt Group is a member of the Squarespace Circle partner program.

With both user experience and interface working hand-in-hand, the Gigawatt team was able to design a user-friendly and responsive website for the most optimal user experience, while still capturing the school’s culture, identity, and values.

“The team at Gigawatt was incredible. Their proactive, flexible and creative approach is wonderful. The results are fabulous.”
Principal, Our Lady of Lourdes

Dolly & Dylan Join the Mix

Clean Cuts Completes DC Expansion, Adding Two New Suites

Clean Cuts is thrilled to announce the completion of our D.C. expansion! The two new suites, named after Dolly Parton and Bob Dylan, continue our long-standing tradition of theming suites after legendary artists and albums.

Acoustically designed by Clean Cuts President Paul Perret, and art directed by Cerebral Lounge creative director Giles D’Souza, the suites feature large recording booths that not only sound great, but look great too. Today’s increased options of acoustic fabrics allowed us to execute a really fun visual aesthetic.

The inspiration for the Bob Dylan suite came from the Milton Glaser designed poster that was included with the 1967 Greatest Hits album.

The Dolly Parton suite was inspired by her Jolene album. While the recording booth features Dolly’s favorite Smoky Mountains.

These rooms already feel like instant classics!

We can’t wait to share these rooms with you. Whether it be VO, ADR, game audio, podcast, audiobooks or Foley, come schedule your next session in our DC studios and experience these great new suites for yourself!

Gigawatt Group Sparks Holiday Rush

Redwood + Co.
A Social E-Commerce Success Story

Let’s light this candle!

Redwood + Co. is a Virginia candle company that was looking to identify and retarget customers on social media who had engaged solely through influencer marketing without visiting their own social media pages.

Our team, led by Senior Digital Strategist Orlando Trott, used our proprietary attribution framework, FOURCORE, to identify how the brand’s audience was engaging across various web properties.

Next, we implemented a content strategy focused on vertical video, to be uploaded across Instagram Reels and TikTok.

We then extracted key data points to optimize marketing initiatives both on and offline.

The results highlight Gigawatt Group’s ability to not only increase social engagement and brand visibility, but also execute a hands-on-keyboard approach to running a brand’s paid social across social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok—driving conversions both online and in-store, and generating increased sales.

“Advertising with Gigawatt not only helped our online strategy but jump started our in person traffic with many of the customers mentioning the ads when engaging with team members. In addition, we truly felt many in person customers were coming from far and wide specifically to buy from Redwood + Co. and making a weekend of their trip here in the Shenandoah Valley. Through online marketing efforts, Redwood + Co. has become a destination.”
CHRISTOPHER WOOD, Co-Founder & CEO, Redwood + Co.
