Case Study: The Unlikely Hero in the Journey of a Tiffany’s Diamond

Jack Morris (@doyoutravel) is someone you might think of as “the cute boy next door.” The 27-year-old travel influencer is frequently pictured barefoot and shirtless with a bandana around his head as he savors the stunning scenery that surrounds him. The boyish charm really comes to life in action shots such as Morris swinging on a rope in the Philippines, skateboarding through the hills of Turkey, and jumping from ocean cliffs in Greece. With images like these, it isn’t hard to see why Jack Morris has amassed 2.8 million Instagram followers.

Morris’ casual, boy-next-door appeal makes him an obvious candidate for promoting millennial-focused brands with products for millennial-sized budgets. Less obvious is Morris’ fit as an influencer for luxury brands, so it may come as a surprise that he recently collaborated with high-end jewelry retailer Tiffany and Co. But look a little deeper and you’ll see plenty of reasons why Morris and Tiffany’s is an unlikely match made in heaven.
