Urban Outfitters Studio

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

I was responsible for the global UO site photography look and feel, as well as hiring, directing and managing teams of art directors, photographers, producers, stylists, and studio talent.

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

Our talented team was able to create freely within this new flexible framework while maintaining an efficient workflow. The resulting visceral, natural photography contributed to the recognizable look and feel of the brand.
