April was a busy month for us here at Boulevard Artists as we set out West for three weeks, covering the entire coast, as we hosted two portfolio reviews and an array of agency and client visits.
Starting in LA where we visited with the creative team at Saatchi & Saatchi LA, we then hosted our LAFotoWorks Portfolio Review over the next two days, and wrapped up the week with a visit up at Deutsch. It was a pleasure to reconnect with so many familiar creatives out in LA and introduce Boulevard Artists to new creatives.
The next week began with a visit up to 72andSunny in LA where we enjoyed meeting with several new art producers and our friend Cameron Ford who's recently joined the team there. We then hit the road for SF, where we hosted our 2nd Annual SF BLVDSelect Portfolio Review. A list of those who joined us in SF can be seen here: SF REVIEWERS
After a successful review in SF, we continued up to Portland for the first time ever where we met with the creative team and art producers at Wieden & Kennedy. An enormous office building with open layouts and creative spaces, visiting the premier agency in Portland was quite exciting. After meeting with the team at Wieden, we then continued north to Seattle where we met with the creative team at Starbucks in their impressive corporate headquarters and then went on to meet with art producers at Eddie Bauer, both quintessentially Seattle companies.
It was an inspiring experience to get out and connect face-to-face with some many new and familiar creatives out West. Introducing our artists in both BLVDSelect and Boulevard Artists to a bevy of new creatives was exciting to say the least. Hearing their response to the overall concept of Boulevard Artists as a resource for creatives to find and connect with premier photographers across the country reaffirmed our belief in what we're producing for our artists and creative members. Bring stunning work from artists around the country to the creatives directly... what's not to love?!?! Now... on to our NYC Spring Portfolio Review and our next round of agency visits in NYC and Philadelphia!
