The market does not
determine the value of art.
Cultivate value beyond the commercial: cultural, historical, philosophical. Your work needs a mature voice before others speak for it and an articulate vision before viewers encounter it. Clear vision and coherent curation cements your legacy whatever the art-form.
The contemporary world demands a well-leveraged network and mastery of media and communications to create a successful enterprise and build this legacy. You need a creative and strategic partner with experience in all the other production elements to bring coordinated clarity, sophisticated language, and digestible assets to buttress your work. Together, we can build a deeply engaged contemporary audience that doesn’t muddle your own novelty and vision.
Creative Direction & Support
Because you’re great at what you do, you’re also keenly aware of how many unknown variables can breakdown your audience’s experience. Let’s work together to create clarity and direction for your vision that can not only anticipate and prevent the unknowns, but use context and surroundings as an opportunity to take your audience’s relationship with your work deeper.
- Art direction, curation and consultation.
- Installation support, event planning and timeline management.
- Brand direction and creative strategy for new ventures and projects.
- Construction consulting, support and design for installations and spaces, inside and out.
- Web design renewal or development management and direction.
Communication & Digital Narration
You know how rare it is to meet an audience member who understands deeply. As fellow artists we have a shared interest in uncovering the uncharted depths of life and the world. By unpacking your work together, we’ll develop tools for communicating vision to the audience that inspires them to keep admiring, returning, and sharing your work.
- Fine copy-writing, narratives of work, biographies, new venture vision-casting, short or long-form articles, critique, content and more.
- Copy-editing, revision and editorial support.
- Digital asset design for websites, online galleries, newsletters, podcasts and more.
- Print assets design for exhibitions, events or other productions.
“Dustin was able to seemingly mind-read, translate, and partner with my imagination in a way that I never thought a person could. A careful listener and astute observer, he took in every word and saw possibilities and clarity where I did not. It was profound. Dustin works from a place of deep respect, equally mindful of the viewer and the artist, and how to channel the connection between them through the work itself. He is brilliant at shaping the written context and curating pieces to create a generative, dynamic viewing experience.”

Every project presents unique challenges, but a well-managed process ensures clarity, effective solutions and success:
- DESIGN & CONCEPTUALIZE. Your project needs a comprehensive approach which considers and integrates each element, media form and variable into a coherent whole.
- DEVELOP A PRODUCTION PLAN. We’ll identify the roles, responsibilities, and timeframe which will best facilitate a smooth and successful production maximizing available time and resources.
- PRODUCE, COMMUNICATE, ITERATE. With a plan and timeframe, assets, support, and services materialize with clear communication and exceptional project management.
- DELIVER. Well-executed design and preparation anticipates challenges. When unforeseens arise you’ll have backup plans and a team of support that guarantees successful production.
- FOLLOW-UP. An engaged audience was the original goal. We’ll be intentional about evaluating our success to develop measured objectives and clear trajectories for future work together.
