RESEARCH

I worked with members of the band to research the history, folklore, and traditions of the holiday. Milanote proved to be a great tool for participatory research, mood boards, and references. We also established Korinya's brand standards, and co-created the script by asking each member to pitch their ideas for key moments of the song.
