The FRAMED Series
We asked Detroit raised, and New York based photographer Libby Gray to help us introduce some New
York creatives & friends (come brand ambassadors ;)) by capturing them in their Smoke x Mirrors frames. We
topped it off with an interview answered via a mood board. We're visual people.

* Hand guns (from Romeo and Juliet), cause' you have to look cool killing zombies.
** A satellite phone so I can call the army to come pick me up.
*** A swiss army knife, cause' I can do everything under the sun with this thing.
**** Portable solar panels to power stuff as I go. Especially my Bullet to make smoothies with.
