Creative Directed by David Gensler and Photographed by Phil Knott, this shoot took place for URB magazine. 
We used the famous Electric Lady Studio which was the NYC home of Jimmy Hendrix.  

Erika is one cool lady, allowing us to explore various set ups for half the night.   She also personally shoots with a Leica M8…
which if you have not had the chance to shoot with – it is a truly amazing photographic tool.

These are two of my personal favorite URB covers we produced. The top image of Janelle Monae was shot by Eric Vogel on a 100 degree day in Red Hook Brooklyn. Chuck Anderson did both graphical treatments on the main type face.

About a year ago we took over the creative direction for URB magazine.  For over a year we managed all the creative responsibilities for the magazine. 
It was a great project and we enjoyed working with Ray, Josh, Brandon, Amy and the rest of the team.   These are some of the first images that never ended up being used. 
They are some of my personal favorites.  Phil Knott photographed the lovely, Roxy Cottontail and Josh Vanover did a completely custom type treatment.   We ended up producing enough art per issue to sink a battleship.  I plan to showcase most of the unused work over the next month.

During our time working with URB magazine, over 50 KDU members helped develop the work.  
This custom logo treatment was done by Magomed Dovjenko from Cologne, Germany (www.iammago.com) 

We wanted to attempt push the aesthetics of URB into the realm of the unexpected.

I dont know what it is about Poland, but the country produces some damn talented people. One of my personal favorite KDU members portfolio is owned by Krzysztof Domaradzki (KXX) 
Truly a talent on a different level than most.
