Hello, I'm Linda Russell. My professional career started 15+ years ago when I started as a graphic designer and worked for Sanford B2B, Kohls Corporate and Econoprint. As I progressed as a designer I was interested in working at the Kohls Photo Studio where I learned to style photo and video shoots. I was also able to direct shoots and eventually expanded my skills even further with a Creative Agency called OneKreate where I was promoted to Senior Styling Manager for Under Armour.
From there I not only managed the studio team, but art directed photo shoots and worked directly with the marketing and creative teams at Under Armour.
My career continued to develop when I went freelance and worked for National Geographic for 9 years on a multitude of projects. Now I manage a Global Creative Team in the marketing department for a STEM Company called JoVE. I manage all marketing campaigns, events, creative projects and social media. My expertise includes: art direction, creative direction, wardrobe, editorial, marketing, AI, commercials, film, beauty, social media, branding, and athletes & celebrities.
Some of my clients include National Geographic, Under Armour, McCann, NFL, Verizon, Smartypants, 33mile, CustomInk, Indeed, Boscov's & QVC.
One of the projects I'm most proud of is the book called Attainable Sustainable, by Kris Bordessa, which was published by National Geographic. I was also asked to travel to Iceland for National Geographic's Travel Magazine where I styled and art directed the entire advertising campaign.
I was also the Head of Wardrobe for big Campaigns such as Amtrak's "Get Carried Away" Campaign, provided wardrobe for a Documentary about teens with Eczema featuring the Director from "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", Head of Wardrobe for SuperBowl LIII featuring First Responders, and many commercials for top Healthcare Companies such as HCA and LifeBridge Healthcare.
I'm always looking for new opportunities and collaborations. Please don't hesitate to reach out. I'd be happy to connect.
