brand culture by suzi9mm brand culture by suzi9mm
this piece was/is really important to me. i wanted a make-up ad kinda feel to it...and those of u who don't know, it's the logo of Chanel on her cheek, a prestige cosmetics brand.



the idea is from a postcard, but i doubt if that was the first time this idea was applied. it had a Nike logo, and was very different in style.



the image itself has gone through a lot of small adjustments, but the logo is absolutely untouched. it was very important for me to do it with such precision it could stand a close up look and no need for manip. so please check the raw 1:1 close-up here [link] :) (i used special wax, make up, fake blood and thread to do it)



thank u to `superkev for the support during this long process :lol:


she is Sanna, a girl from my swedish class. i knew she'd be perfect for this :)

//EDIT 27th sep 04 !!
sorry i realized the photo was in adobe RGB when it was supposed to be in sRGB :blushes: ///
