There is something enchanting that happens when pairing perfect copy with engaging imagery – it’s an alchemy of sorts. Crafting typography, finessing the perfect picture and seeing them work together in harmony is a joy perhaps only creative people can appreciate. I have been fortunate enough to work and collaborate with exceptionally talented copywriters, photographers, stylists and designers with whom I have been able to make this magic happen.
