Together with a small, collaborative team and lots of participants, we created the First Edition of the Tether Sourcebook. 

For the Sourcebook, the publication consisted of three main sections: Editorial (Showcasing three local entrepreneurs and the behind-the-scenes process of photo shoots); Portfolio (Photo shoot submissions by local image-makers); Directory (Participating talent listing and resource for talent seekers).

For print, Tether had the opportunity for a more expansive art direction. Most notably, using analog materials to create patterns and textures of “ropes” as a supporting element—a connection to process and visual creatives.
