About the work

Produced for LA agency Small Green Door during Liu's internship, this branding campaign illustrates four basic creative services – design, shoot, develop, and grow – each in a fresh and unique way. 


United States
Color was used as the initial focal point of the campaign; palettes were chosen to relate and communicate on four pillars. This eventually led to the integration of objects into each shoot, creating a harmonious tonal voice.

Small Green Door is an nteractive web design and product photography studio in Los Angeles, providing 5,000 square feet of modular, open industrial space suitable for photoset construction, gallery showings, and creative events. This work was featured on their website to illustrate their service offerings for clients.
