In 2014, we worked with photographer, Justin Chung on the inaugural volume of Faculty Department and released the self published title around the world. It was significant turning point for our then two year old studio, as we got to showcase our work beyond our city and we were very encouraged by the positive response.
Since the 2014 release, Justin has continued to document stories of noteworthy individuals around the world and also in California, his new home since making the move westward. Within these past five years, both Justin and our team have gone through life changes that have shaped the theme for volume two of Faculty Department—“simple living with purpose”.
Moodboard and keywords for Faculty Department Vol.2. Since the release of Vol. 1 in 2014, we felt it was the right time to revisit the visual direction of the brand and realign the brand direction to our vision for its future.
