was a lifestyle multimedia series, that I started in 2010, where I highlighted (via highly stylized photography and video) Washington, DC area creatives, such as artists, musicians, and DJs, that are making noise within their respective crafts/industries.  Combined, these candid shots and video will tell two stories:

1.) How this person is building their brand
2.) The steps they take to create a branded project

MAKE NO!SE x FILA feat Dannon Cook
 

Dannon Cook is a sought after barber and classically trained violinist who attended Howard University via his musical talents making him the definition of a multihyphenate: a creative who's barbering skills range from your basic lineups and fades to crafting a limitless array of designs into many a head.  And on the flip-side there’s Dannon’s musical abilities as a violinist – who’s been mastering the instrument since the third grade.

MAKE NO!SE x Native Shoes feat Risikat Okedeyi
 

In this edition of MAKE NO!SE I highlight Risikat Okedeyi of Lil SoSo Productions which produces some of the most eclectic and concept driven events (ed. note – she’s NOT a promoter), in addition to managing an array of colorful artists and DJs, the DC area (and the east coast for that matter) has to offer.
