Cathedral Creative Studios
Located at L’entrepot, a creative arts hub, gallery and events space located in the center of the arts district, Cathedral Creative Studios uses its own artistic vision to support and promote others’.
Specializing in work that’s “innovative, arresting and effective,” the creative marketing and photography studio routinely tackles challenges including company brochures (they won a Gold Addy Award this year for a leasing brochure for Time Warner), to celebrity photo and fashion shoots (including actress Keri Russell recently seen in the film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
Cathedral was founded by partners Loc Pham and Vic Granata, who created the company in order to fulfill a longtime desire to spend their days doing what they love.
“I regret the time I wasted not doing it,” says Granata. “Growing up, I was always interested in art and design, and as I got older, advertising. But I never pursued it.”
Both agree that their home city plays a big part in fueling their creative spark.
“One of the things we love about New Orleans is it’s unpredictable,” says Pham. “New Orleans refuses to allow anyone a comfortable rut, despite how often we may try and dig one.”
