Here at J.Crew, we work with some seriously creative, inspiring people—so it’s hardly surprising that they get up to some seriously creative, inspiring things outside the office too. In the first of our new series, we meet up with Jose, a production artist by day and a muralist by night.
“The production team makes sure the colors and quality you see in our images accurately reflect our products in real life. We check everything from matchbooks we give away at store parties to billboards of our ad campaigns. No detail is too small. You could say we do for design what a proofreader does
“Making art reminds me to appreciate the little things… And coffee keeps me awake enough to see them.”
“I’ve been painting my whole life. My mother painted portraits when I was younger, and I loved the smell of paint and linseed oil, so I went to art school, where I created mostly canvas work. Mural work is an extension of that—something that lets you expand outside the confines of a frame.”
