Urban Outfitters Studio

Urban Outfitters' 2015 e-commerce studio relaunch was spearheaded with the goal of elevating the merchandise, reattracting the brand's core customer, and increasing conversion. 

As Executive Creative Director I was responsible for rebuilding the studio, developing the global site photography look and feel, and hiring, directing, and managing teams of art directors, photographers, producers, stylists, and studio talent.

The redesigned physical space involved a cohesive system of surfaces, sets, and backdrops that allowed photographers to take advantage of environmental details and natural light.

Our creators were able to capture moments freely within a flexible light-filled space while maintaining an efficient workflow. The resulting visceral, emotional photography is key to the recognizable look and feel of the brand.
