In 2016 Seattle-based design consultancy Teague turned 90 years old. To celebrate, they decided to throw an anniversary party at Chihuly Garden and Glass under the Space Needle. In addition to celebrating 90 years, Teague wanted to recognize their veteran designers and employees who have been with the company for 10 years or longer.
Working closely with Teague's Director of Marketing, I helped create an artistic vision for capturing portraits of all 50 plus individuals to put on display at the event. Over the course of two weeks I was able to meet and take pictures of these design visionaries. Using a play on Rembrandt lighting and editing in black and white, I personally captured, produced, and edited every photo. The gallery you see here is the result.
The portraits were printed on tall banners and fastened to stands, then placed along an aisle bordering the main museum courtyard. Guests were able to walk through the larger-than-life exhibit while enjoying hors devours, drinks, and a live orchestra.
