My collaboration with Smiling began in 2019 and their second album Politely. At the time me and my husband were running a combined record label and production studio and wanted to help the band build a world around their music.

On Politely we started by filming a video to the album’s main single Windowsill. The single got a matching cover photo portraying a window from my mother’s dollhouse, which also acted as the setting for the rest of the album artwork.

The music video is starring fellow creative Lamia Karic.
