Fuel is a full-service hotel marketing agency, that specializes in providing simple and effective e-Commerce solutions for the travel industry.
They are the hospitality-focused branch of a larger group of companies, owned and operated by The Brandon Agency, a well-known advertising firm based in Myrtle Beach, S.C., with offices in Charleston, S.C., Charlotte, Breckenridge, Colo., Chattanooga, Tenn., Cleveland, OH, and Sofia, Bulgaria.
Though I was hired to be part of the MyrtleBeach.com team — which runs several tourism portal sites — I have often contributed outside my given position during my time here.
Serving as the lead designer for the company’s internal marketing efforts, I’ve had the opportunity to work on many projects including building FuelTravel.com, creating a new visual identity for the company and contributing to many whitepapers and research studies as a designer and writer.
In addition, I’ve contributed to designs for Guest Desk, the company’s booking engine software and Guest Express, Fuel’s custom mobile app for hotels, as well as pitching in on projects for hotel clients from time to time.
