This one is a pretty special project, as the client is Alexis’ Dad. Veryl Oakland is a decorated jazz photographer who shot the jazz greats from the 1960’s through ‘80s – everyone from Miles Davis to Thelonious Monk, Sarah Vaughan to Chet Baker.
The goal: publish a coffee table book to showcase nearly 400 of his photos alongside personal stories of the musicians he worked with. So we sourced a publisher, designed the book layout, and developed his brand across a website, socials, materials for gallery openings and bookstore events, and content for advertising. A true, collective labor of love for his life’s work.
