VSCO Artist Initiative™
Launched in 2014, VSCO Artist Initiative™ was a grant program that provided artists with the resources to pursue their creative vision. The Initiative funded over 30 artist projects, ranging from documentaries to stop motion films to fine art. We were a small team, led by Jen Schmitz, who did an excellent job supporting the artists and organizing the fund. Joakim Jansson provided art direction and design. I'm incredibly proud of this program, and the diverse projects created by the talented artists, some of which I've highlighted below.
