PROJECT
M·A·C Girls​

ROLE
Designer, Art Director

In 2018, M·A·C Cosmetics launched 9 new eyeshadow palettes, with each palette themed around a fictional M·A·C Girl character. As Associate Design Director at M·A·C, I worked with artist and animator Mat Maitland to create six personality-driven animated films to bring each M·A·C Girl to life.
Photographer Amy Troost shot the primary campaign imagery with makeup by Isamaya Ffrench, while I shot supplemental images that were used in stores, on social media and within Mat’s animations.
