This week we bring you not one, but two #WCW’s, the bad-ass branding maven team consisting of Katie Mullen and Jordan Pintar.
I originally came across Jordan under a Facebook post calling for all the boss ladies, creatives, and leaders in our community. A few google searches (Google is your friend!) I was brought to the website blackpaintstudios.com.
“Not your mother’s creative studio” the two state, black paint studios is a progressive boutique advertising and branding agency based out of our very own MKE. BlackPaint Studios prides itself with what they would call “exciting and empathetic work” their designs and style are all focused on culture and the human experience. Trust, this isn't your Colgate toothpaste ad team.
Katie and Jordan aim to break the norms and stuffy culture of the advertisement business as we know. They aim to inspire more women to not only break into the creative directing industry but own it. The “Boss Lady Project” aims to break down the creative industries "white male" power structure through street level campaigning. (Check out the blog http://bossladyproject.com/)
They're all about the artistic integrity and stories behind the work they produce. Katie and Jordan are giving creative directing the soul and realness we see lacking at many other agencies ( The rest of you....#DoBetter). Did we mention they do community work as well? Black Paint volunteers time to aid FROM HERE TO HER Artist Collective. FROM HERE TO HER is an artist collective of women aiming to empower their communities making them safer, happier, and healthier through art. Now that's definitely something we can rock with.
#WCW worthy, we certainly think so Boss Ladies.
We're completely obsessed with there work for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Check out the mural ("The Goddess of FIerce Protection") they projected on the building below and follow there Instagram for all dope things from the boss ladies.
