Last Thursday Jess, Sean and I packed up nearly 40 portfolios and headed to the Big Apple. We had four meetings squeezed into a tight schedule, with our first starting at 9:30 am. (This meant that our day started at 5:45 am.) We loaded up and drove straight to Addison, a branding and design firm, where we met up with art producer Marcie Heffron. Addison's focus is on information simplification with a long list of financial clients including Wells Fargo, Liberty Mutual, American Express and Bank of America.
Last month we sent 56,511 emailers to 28,415 unique art buyers at ad agencies, magazines, and corporations in the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Click on the thumbnails below to view the full versions. This month, in addition to our regular photographer bio emailers, we sent out emailers featuring our Home & Garden, Automotive, Beauty, and Food & Drink specialties.

Corporations tend to use photography in two main ways: to illustrate their internal communications (like company newsletters whose audience is primarily employees) and in external communications (like annual reports, capabilities brochures, sales brochures and press kits whose audience is shareholders, clients, vendors or the general public). Before the advent of digital photography and desktop publishing, most big corporations had a steady need for professional photography and design for their internal communications. But advances in technology have made it easier for ordinary employees to do what they once hired professionals to do. And though the level of quality may not be the same, it is often considered good enough. Thats rarely the case for external communications which can often have a significant impact on the perception of the company, and ultimately their bottom line.

Originally from New York state, Kathryn Russell headed west towards Colorado for the great skiing. It was there that she fell in love with taking pictures and ended up a state away, attending the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After graduating, she opened her own studio in the Los Angeles area, where she specialized in food and product work for clients ranging from Target to Random House...
In the past, Kathryn had been savvy enough to create her own promos and send them out to a personal mailing list shed built up over the years. However, she came to realize that it was time to change the way they actually looked. Her old type treatment and promos felt a bit bland and lacked the emotion that a lot of her work had.
Thats where I came in. Kathryn wanted a new brand and felt that doing an email promo using the new look would be a great start. I was excited to help her create something eye-catching that a lot of potential clients would really enjoy receiving in their inboxes.
