Fiery Headdress by Justin Marimon

Headdress is the name given to any element of clothing which is worn on one’s head. Today, we bring you a unique design of a headdress which is created by a graphic designer from Chicago, Justin Marimon along with his graphic designer friend Lillie Templeton. Let us read on and be inspired with their design.

Fiery Headdress is a collaborative project between myself Lillie Templeton, a graphic designer and good friend from art school. The concept was merely to experiment with long shutter-speeds and how it’d create motion with studio strobes. Lillie helped a lot in creating the headdress, wardrobe, and ultimately was the model in the photographs. The Photoshoot ended up being fairly complex, employing four studio strobes and shutter speeds of around 2 seconds to capture the movement. Movement, in combination with the warm-colored feathers, created a ‘fiery’ look that was fairly unique.
