Over the past four years, Sub Rosa has remained steadfast in its belief that the creativity our staff possesses should be shared with the world. Since launching in Fall 2013, our studio has explored new beginnings through Rebirth, tested society’s limits with Taboo, and sought balance through Karma (to name but a few). It seems fitting that for this issue–our eighth–we look to the theme of Commitment as we continue to commit to the creative intellect and design prowess of the Sub Rosa team. Among the highlights of this issue:
“What You Read Affects What You See” – Art Director Jessi Brattengeier’s humorous graphic send-up of click bait headlines.
“Pigments” – Field Producer Julia Sarasola’s touching photo series uncovering “wordless stories of those we do not know.”
“The Night Moves” – Executive Activation Director Kristopher Kowal’s haunting photo series showcasing the outwardly mundane using traditional film cameras and techniques.
“Blockchains” – Chief Operating Officer Jeff Kempler’s essay on a vital component in blockchain thinking–empathy.
“Letters to My Father” – Activation Director Jonathan Bailey’s attempt to connect with his father through the lost art of letter writing.
“+1” – Events Director Jeremiah Clancy and Art Director Isaac Friedman-Heiman’s stunning photo series about the unspoken commitment shared between everyday objects.
