Photography, Art Direction


Onigiri Kororin offers onigiris (traditional Japanese rice balls) through their cloud kitchen restaurant, farmer's markets, virtual cooking classes, and DIY onigiri kits. In 2022, just two years after Onigiri Kororin was born, the small business expanded their offering to local Chicago artisan stores, such as Beatrix Market, Andale Market, and Fresh Thyme.

Co-founders Yuta and Cristina approached me for new brand imagery. Barely a year old, Onigiri Kororin was lacking in imagery that told their brand story and educated prospects/customers on onigiri. I had the opportunity to direct, stage, and photograph the company and its co-founders to promote across their website, social media, local food fairs, and event platforms like Tock and Boombox.
