I graduated May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Advertising Art and a Minor in Marketing from Columbia College Chicago. I have learned how to Art Direct cohesive campaigns, sharpened my photography and increased my design skills in Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator.
MODELING AS AN ART
In my free time during University, I would reach out to photographers and work closely with them for art direction and styling. Together we would develop mood boards, scavenge clothes, props and seek a location that would fit our concept and theme. I have worked with over 30 photographers from Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle and Los Angeles. This includes working with the talented Brando, Cloina and nationwide music artist ZHU.
I was interviewed for Columbia College Chicago's Tumblr page about one of my collaborations with photographer, Diante Thomas that catches a glimpse my process.
Through all my experience with photoshoots, I picked up photography and videography. With my love for music, I combined the three to work with music artists to develop full campaigns for promotion of their newest albums. This includes conceptualizing photoshoots that I develop into album covers, social media promotion with animated GIFs and potential guerrilla advertising that reflect their music persona and a visual representation of their music.
The album artwork I created for music artist Kryptogram on his newest song, ‘Idea of You,’ had over 65k+ plays on Soundcloud within four months.
