Best Of Las Vegas Magazine
For 32 years the Las Vegas Review Journal has published an annual magazine featuring the Best that Las Vegas has to offer, as voted by it’s citizens. This year they wanted something a little different, a little extra, a little more visual and something to make a bigger impact. This is a classic case of “they can’t hire you if they don’t know you exist”. I emailed them to say “hey, look at my work and I live in Vegas.” They call me not more than 20 minutes later offering me the cover and the 6 major award category covers. Talk about perfect timing!
Now, my biggest challenge was the limitation they placed upon me. As with any client, they have a direction they want to go in. It is my job to take the tiny idea they have and grow it into a concept. This year they had custom tattoos representing each category. I was given a loose concept and a tattoo and told to run with it. The hardest part was creating a concept that would enable the showcasing of the tattoos. I didn’t want to crowd the shot with too much detail and take away from the focal point. Frustrating at times as I had a few ideas that just wouldn’t of worked with the tattoos.
this is what I produced for them.
