JoJo Li

About JoJo Li

JoJo Li was born in Beijing, grew up in Chicago, and has lived and worked in New York for over a decade.

From her studio in Brooklyn, she has fabricated many sets, crafted countless props, and roamed the streets of her favorite city in search of the perfect objects for the job. Working from a background in art and film, she is always looking for a good composition, an extraordinary material, and a new approach. Her favorite projects balance sculptural still life with a bit of surreal disorder. This carries through to her illustrations, which employ both traditional and digital techniques, and have been commissioned by the likes of Dossier Journal and Random House books.

Her collaborations with photographers have been featured in Apple, Rag + Bone, Marc Jacobs, Boots No7, Kiehl’s, Malin + Goetz, Harry’s, Bloomingdale’s, J. Crew, Madewell, Kate Spade New York, Ann Taylor, LOFT, Uniqlo, Onomie, Bauble Bar, Lo & Sons, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, and Rockefeller Center, Vogue, WSJ, Condé Nast Traveler, TIME, New York Times Magazine, Bon Appétit, Real Simple, Italian Vanity Fair, Amica, Bloomberg Pursuits, Consumer Reports, and Men’s Health.

Astrid Chastka

About Astrid Chastka

Astrid Chastka is a prop stylist and set designer based in New York. She studied architecture and printmaking at the University of Virginia and moved to the city to pursue a career in architectural design. After several years in the industry and with a desire for independence and a faster pace, she co-founded a hand dyed textile brand (Upstate) and a line of 3D printed jewelry (Metalepsis Projects). In developing those projects, she realized that the photoshoots were always her favorite part of the design process, and this led to set design becoming her sole focus.

Astrid draws inspiration from her diverse background in jewelry design, architecture, and fine art to define a visual perspective that is bold and often unexpected, usually seeking a balance of technology and natural sensibilities. She believes that the most exciting new ideas can be generated in the gray area where multiple fields meet, and she is constantly trying to weave new connections between set design and materials or processes learned in her other fields of study (3D printing and rendering, paper-making, ceramics). When not on set, she is happiest eating cheese and playing Italian card games.

Clients include Makeup.com, M.GEMI, Bose, Pepsi, Phaidon, West Elm, Hearst Digital Media, Architectural Digest, Bon Appetit, POPSUGAR, Real Simple, Refinery29, and West Elm.

Heather Greene

About Heather Greene

Heather Greene is a New York based Soft Goods & Prop Stylist and Set/Production Designer. Heather moved to NYC in 1998 to pursue a career as a fashion stylist. She began working at the Issey Miyake Boutique and then moved on to assist their buyer in Paris. Deciding to broaden her professional career, she combined her passion for art, fashion, and the craft of documentation by transitioning to production. Her production credits began with working on the live shows and film projects of Fischerspooner and Vanessa Beecroft at Deitch Projects and also on location in London and Germany. Heather then went on to produce many art-based and commercial live events, documentary, feature, and television projects both domestically and internationally.

Throughout these experiences she often gravitated toward and worked on sets and props, eventually leading her to happily shift focus to set design and prop styling for the still and moving image. Now a full-time stylist, she applies her combined experience of production, travel, fashion, art & design to each and every project she takes on. Heather lives with her husband and two sons in Brooklyn, NY.

Olga Naiman

About Olga Naiman

Olga’s work is deeply informed by her background in installation art and set design. Her art installations evoke spaces existing just beyond the five senses, alchemical landscapes of magic and possibility. Olga’s commercial work is infused with the same seeds. She strives to create poetry in space and form. Pulling inspiration from a tapestry of art references, she weaves opposing elements for unusual juxtapositions. Olga works confidently across the design spectrum from concept to shoot, designing spaces for events, styling catalogs, magazine editorial, advertising and consulting brands for visual reboots. She designed a restaurant in Brooklyn and her home will be featured in Domino Magazine in Fall 2017.

Olga holds an MA in Installation Art from Central St. Martins in London, a postgraduate degree in Set Design from Motley in London and a BA in clinical psychology from Tufts University. Olga was born in the USSR and lives in Brooklyn with her partner and two children.
