Photography and album design for a record label.
A longtime partner of ours, Chocolate Industries has been a cultural touchpoint since the early 2000′s. Having released work by Cool Kids, Lady Sovereign, Mos Def, Diverse, Caural, Vast Aire, Via Tania and many others, Chocolate remains one of the most relevant record labels in Chicago.
Adventures & Misadventures
Having designed, art directed and photographed numerous projects together, here are some of our most notable moments in the past decade: dragging a 400 lbs New York phone booth into the middle of a busy Chicago intersection for a record cover photoshoot without a permit, filming a music video on the CTA without making a sound nor having a permit, hiring professional break dancers to perform on a championship Ping Pong table, spending the night with Lyrics Born and RJD2 in the back of a compact car, and crafting images for the Personal Space record layout using actual NASA astronaut Don Pettit’s photographs.
