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: ///

Wow, awesome shot! Brilliant, even!

I actually recognized it as some image used on some club flyer out here in L.A. I didn't realize it was an actual real photograph though... or that it was made by someone on DA. How cool!

Well I have been researching it it is harder than you might think. Because I have to figure the width and the color of the CC....Some say black is not so good or that it should just be an outline. I don't know:)

So I've been lurking around your gallery and I love it. I came across this and I loved it just as much. And I think you're totally inspiring.

Anyhoo... the reason for my post is because for my "beauty school" we all have to dress up and I was wondering if I could sort of borrow your idea for the whole halloween spirit thing and do this whole "designer chic" thing and make all these designer labels like you did the channel label?
