“In art school, I discovered a connection between two loves—art and music,” says designer, illustrator and photographer Sean Mosher-Smith. After 16 years of stints at RCA Records, Virgin/Capitol Records and The Sloan Group, creating album packages, digital platforms and branding for some of the country’s top bands, Sean set out on his own.
Today, Sean’s burgeoning Brooklyn-based firms, Echo Designlab and web-centric theConspiracy, turn out award-winning work. It’s a compelling blend of photography, design, illustration and typography. “Every project starts with defining the mood. I look for ways to extend the impact through different venues. I like to surround a project.”
“Growing up, dinner table talk revolved around marketing and travel. The person I am creatively is definitely based on being in an environment where it was okay to be curious and explore new things. My wife and I try to recreate that for our kids.”
“For inspiration, I look to places I’ve been—Morocco, Iceland, our cabin on Lake Ontario. The colors, landscape, patterns and culture wind their way into my work.”
An old Brooklyn sweater factory, with mangled wood floors and a loud industrial feel, houses his studio. “For me, it’s more about time than space. I get all the crazy stuff done during the day, but my best ideas come to me in the early morning or late at night. I’ve never been good at sitting still.”
