[Creative Types is a new editorial series produced by Smiley Pete Publishing in partnership with Creative Lexington, a local initiative that connects the public with Lexington’s arts community through professionally produced “snapshot bio” videos that highlight local artists and other creative types.]
[This article is the first in a new partnership between Creative Lexington and Smiley Pete Publishing to highlight members of the local creative community. Creative Lexington, a new local initiative profiled in the February issue of this publication, produces high quality “snapshot bio” videos about local artists and other “creative types,” and in this series, we will collaborate with the organization to publish a coinciding print article profiling some of those artists as well.] - Excerpt from article introduction
I had the wonderful opportunity to document an artist who has been documenting the intricate details of his life, and other people's lives since the 70's. A 5 minute video is only a drop in the ocean in regards to everything Louis Zoellar Bickett II has done, but take a look. -S
A couple of months ago I met Bryan Mullins during a photoshoot for Smiley Pete Publishing. I was taking photos for an article (coming soon) about a company he started called Creative Lexington. We started talking and I loved what his goals were for the company. We learned quickly that we would make a great team. I got to work right away on the redesign and branding of his website and we launched after the new year. *For designer recognition, Shaan Azeem designed the Creative Lexington logo. I designed the Snapshot Bios and Positive Change logos.
Since working with Bryan I have gotten more involved with video in Lexington as well. We just launched a video for Sword and I am currently working on a Snapshot Bio which will be released in a couple of weeks. Take a look at the website- the Snapshot Bios are especially neat. Enjoy!
