Showcasing talent beyond the runway
For over two decades, IMG Models has dominated the international model management industry, boasting a roster that includes global superstars such as Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, Karlie Kloss, Ashley Graham, and Gigi Hadid. Created as a division of IMG Worldwide, the agency was founded on the simple yet innovative philosophy that models could be managed as talent in the same vein as professional athletes, actors, and other entertainers. That beyond the pages of a magazine or a runway show, their popularity could be leveraged into strong personal brands.
Tasked with translating this vision into the digital space, Doublespace transformed IMGmodels.com into the new standard of model agency websites. Nominated for a 2014 Webby award in the beauty and fashion space, the website has continued to celebrate the breadth and depth of their talent’s work while providing innovative and user-friendly tools for industry veterans, aspiring models, and fashion junkies alike.
