We had the good fortune of connecting with Daniel Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daniel, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I think the most important factor behind my success is my personality. I was gonna say something about the art, but before that, it’s my personality that gives my brand success. I’m fun to work with, HILARIOUS, and I’m really good at bringing the personality and rawness out of my clients. I can feel the passion you have for your brand, and I take it to a whole ‘nother level. You can feel the enthusiasm I put into every project by the end result. Our clients are on cloud 9 when they receive a project from us, and are just as excited to share our work with everyone they come across. I’m really transparent, and down to earth, so all of my clients and the people I work with are like family. Nah, but for real though, with every client I work with, it feels like we grew up in the same neighborhood or something lol. I ride for my people, and my people ride for me.
Plus, my instagram is hilarious! I’m very in-depth, so you just gotta watch my story to understand lmao
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
See, I went through a lot of growth in my career. I’ve just been through a whole lot, so nowadays I’m excited to celebrate every baby step along the way, instead of keeping track of the things that slowed me down. As I grow as a person, I grow as an artist. As I grow as an artist, I grow as a business man. I’m a very unique person, I think differently in about every way. That translates to my artwork. Whether it be photography, video production, graphic design, etc. I show you a unique perspective, concept, or story you didn’t know you needed to see. I have a long range of art forms that I work in, and techniques I picked up along the way, so i’m built to stand out. Also, I tailor my style to the project, so i’m able to make every project have its own voice, that fits perfectly for the brand, or artist i’m working with. All of this translates to the business. I love a guerrilla approach to my marketing. My moves are very strategic, but appear random. Over time my seeds grow, and people finally understand certain things haha
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Okay so the first thing is we gotta eat at Tassili’s Raw Reality. Their vegan wraps are AMAZING! I go there every time i’m in the city. Also, if you get a hotel, you gotta get a sky view. Looking down at the city gives you a different perspective when you just think about everything the city has to offer. One of my favorite spots when I go out is Bonfire ATL. They have a party going on inside with open mic performances, vendors, etc. and a bonfire going on outside at the same time. It’s lit. The selfie museum is dope too, and there’s hella graffiti walls that are must-sees. My friend Neasy is hella cool to chill with too. She’s a dancer and choreographer, knows about all the artsy vibes in Atlanta.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Lol!!!!! Okay so check this out right, I needed numerous people for their support, guidance, love and presence to make it this far in my career. It really takes a village….. I personally, individually and as a whole thank everyone for contributing to my life and works. in every way that you do.
I’m laughing because at one point in my career I met a big sis who truly has been giving me nothing but guidance, wisdom, friendship and laughter throughout my entire career lol! As I climb to the top, one person I just GOTTA recognize is Shuvona Rembert-Spann. This woman is amazing. A beautiful soul, who gets me lol! As an artist, not everyone is gonna understand you, or your vision. Few people really see the extent of your passions, so you gotta recognize the people that can pour into you, keep you grounded, and believe while you believe. I could go all day, but I promised her a speech when I win my Oscar, so I guess by then I can pick up where I left off. Thank you Shuvona! and thank you Shoutout ATL.
