Model of the moment Hanne Gaby Odiele graced the cover of creem magazine during my time as Editor-in-Chief of the New York based publication.

The final layout and cover option was chosen by yours truly.

Shlohmo is a figure widely known in the music industry for his vividly emotional synth-slap production. His poetic and dark identity was tantamount to creem, making him the perfect fit for a feature.

Similarily to 'SARAH,' this editorial was aimed at lightening a predominantly darker brand narrative to appeal to advertisers. My role involved creative direction, production and layout for this creem editorial.
This double feature for Bullett and BlackBook came on the cusp of Sewell's breakout in the United States. After topping the charts in Australia with 'Start Again' and winning their prestigious Aria Award, I knew Sewell would soon sweep the globe.

To materialize Sizzy Rocket's brand we settled on a live video featuring two original songs and one cover. I directed, conceptualized and placed this content. I also wrote the copy for the release. The video was published in Bullett.
The absurdity of fashion and beauty comes full circle in this editorial for creem featuring Kid Plotnikova. The editorial was meant to capture how subtleties can change perception and even identity. My role in this was production and layout based.
