studio SWISH is a DIY studio + communication design practice c/o Will Howell (est. 2016)
When asked about her work, Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, summarized her process beautifully with one monostich: “My energy comes from freedom and a rebellious spirit.”
This design philosophy or lifestyle is something I have tried to embody
with my contemporary art practice. By leaning into experimentation in pursuit of something new, I have grown to appreciate cross-pollinating
mediums such as: painting, illustration, graphic design, motion graphics, and sound. With studio SWISH I aspire to use this platform as a creative outlet and service, facilitating unique experiences and products in conversation with music, sport, culture, and lifestyle.
Will Howell is an African American visual artist, designer, and Dj who embodies a multidisciplinary approach towards creative problem solving. After a decision to study art & design instead of pursuing basketball in college, Will landed at Parsons School of Design (NY) and simultaneously established a brand titled studio S W I S H; with the initial ethos of sharing his ideas and his new sense of self with the community around him. As an artist, Will thrives off of experimentation and the cross-pollinating of mediums. For the past few years Will has been able to produce creative content under studio S W I S H, host art exhibitions, and collaborate with other young creatives between Washington D.C., Miami, and New York City; who like himself find comfort in the DIY approach to modern contemporary art-making.
