Who printed it?
This specific promotional piece I had printed at Aosaimage.com They do tons of amazing creative printing techniques. My direct contact there is Mike Hill. He is such an awesome guy!
Who designed it?
The design came from a collaboration of myself and Mike Hill. We have worked on a few other creative printing processes in the past on some larger prints on wood and metal and had discussed ideas like this in the past.
Who edited it?
The images were edited and selected by me. This was a personal series i had shot beach camping in San Onofre Camp Pendleton south of San Clemente, CA
How many did you make?
My goal with these pieces was to share something that was close to me, with people whose creative impact I respect and value. So, I only printed this as a limited series of 50 pieces. All of which are hand signed and numbered.
How many times a year do you send out promos?
I have just begun to conceptualize more and more creative promotional series like this one for release in small personal runs. In the past I have done more standard promos in bulk of 500-1,000 and sent out 3-5 times a year between LeBook shows and through direct mail.
How did this concept come about?
The concept behind this piece was to use materials that were natural to the environment of the images. The burlap hand sewn sacks, the handmade and sanded drift wood box and the wood coasters. I wanted something that people would want to have as decoration and consider a series of personal art released. Im not trying to spam my promotional series out. Moving forward, I want to continue creating promos that are intimate and close to my heart. My goal with all my clients is to develop a working relationship on a more personal level. My hopes are that this is felt and seen through this series.
