Although this happened a bit ago, I still wanted to share the awesome experience I had working with the Alligator Food Design brand. A friend from a freshman class [tip – always keep up with your contacts, you never know when you might need them//when they’ll need you!] reached out to ask about help with her brand, specifically editorial styling for the product. This brand aligns perfectly with my aesthetic, so it was a perfect match.
We met to discuss how the shoot would work and what her ideas were, and of course I added some. The really cool thing that made this project different than any I’d ever done before was that the brand had different collections based on people, which gave them each personalities. This was a fun dynamic to work with, as we wanted each collections to really speak to the person it was inspired by and of course be visually pleasing.
Once we had our ideas drawn out and we agreed on several visual inspirations, we set up shop in a garage to get the magic going! It took a few hours to get everything right, but it the work definitely paid off. Check out Alligator Food Design’s website to read their story and get some prints! [Of course] I had to get some. Enjoy!!
