INFO

Creative direction, album artwork, photography, logotype, packaging design, merch design, tour posters, and copywriting for 070 Shake’s sophomore album “You Can’t Kill Me.” At its core, the project grapples with immateriality of self, formlessness, internal tension, the multiplicity of the ego, and one’s ability to transform themself and continually remold their core. The album artwork was featured in Our Culture Magazine’s “The 50 Best Album Covers of 2022” at #15. Photography featured on Billboard, Rolling Stone, The Fader, Complex, The Guardian, and Pitchfork. (Winter 2022 – Spring 2022)

Paris Texas

Live Tour

Creative Direction · Live · Photography · Fall 2021 · Live Performance Direction · Stage Design · 32 items ·
INFO

Creative direction, stage design, and photography for Paris Texas’ debut live tour. The stage was transformed into a “kill room.” We worked with limited space at smaller venues, striving to create an immersive, narrative-driven experience. Semi-transparent tarp treated with a mix of mud and blood surrounded the stage on three sides, providing a means of lighting diffusion for an ethereal atmosphere. Scrap metal, chains and a variety of junk was strewn across the stage, carefully blocked out to interact with our lighting.
