Whether that’s through words or visuals (often both), I craft narratives. I work across various disciplines, including poetry, video, illustration, curated experiences –– the message picks the medium.
Bridging creativity and spirituality, I rely on the language of symbolism to understand and reveal the true nature — the kenshō — of this human story.
As a creative director I have collaborated with mission-driven companies and artists to help bring their stories to life – guiding their brand voice and visual identity. Clients include the Alan Watts Organization, NeueHouse, The Wild Unknown, Conscia, amongst others. More project details: Here
And who are you?
The pixels you’re reading originated in the neurons of Sabrina Y. Smith (that’s me!). I’m currently based in Los Angeles, was born in New York City, raised in France, with my roots in North Africa – a global perspective that I carry throughout my projects.
* I was the US Director at the photography and art agency, Probation London. I shepherded visual collaborations with music artists including Beck, Thom Yorke, Coldplay, and Interpol as well as projects for Apple, Persol, and Oakley.
* A curator in New York City, where I worked with Rush Arts Gallery and SCOPE/Miami, among others. During the same time, I was also the Features Editor for the art publication, The Ground.
While Kenshō springs from my vision, it’s fueled by a network of talented collaborators. I’m lucky to work with a diverse community of producers, copywriters, designers, photographers, directors. It’s about co-creation, co-llaboration and co-thriving.
