Everything has a place.
Over the years this sentiment has helped me through a career in design; from building brand communities for Nike and Vulcan, to designing and producing at Better Homes and Gardens magazine, to designing books in partnership with the Smithsonian and publishers like Harper Collins, even having my work featured on NBC’s Today Show.
EDITORIAL ART DIRECTION
Someone on set needs to hold the vision for what we’ll create as a team and that’s what I do. I bring clear, ego-less communication to every shoot and promise to deliver images and video that the entire crew will be excited about having created. From translating the assignment across the team to presenting creative to executives, I have experience leading in every stage of bringing location, product and lifestyle photography to press.
SPACE DESIGN & STYLING
Getting into the details of what a space needs and what you want from it is a breeze with my design process. We’ll start with inquisitive conversations that will expand the initial vision you were so excited about the first time you saw it. From coordination with architects to managing contractors we’ll maximize the utility and livability of your space. Once it’s ready for styling I’ll market edit and source pieces nobody else is finding. I have relationships with local shops and global craftsmen creating one-of-a-kind pieces. I’ll relate to the mood you’re after, not just express my personal style, when styling your space.
PUBLICATION BRANDING & DESIGN
From coffee table books to national editorial magazines I direct and design meaningful and effective layouts ensuring your publication is easy to pick up and hard to put down. Whether working inside of a well-developed brand or dialing in art direction from mood boards, I’ll clarify your message, match it to creative and see the piece through press run.
Projects I love taking on:
– creative & brand strategy
– art direction, styling, production (on-set or in-store)
– all-things publishing (from layout & design to business plans)
