Brinson+Banks photograph designer and illustrator Laina Miller for their ongoing series, “LA Woman”

“When we say our LA Woman project is about creative women, it is to the power of 10 with this one,” says Brinson+Banks. “This is what Laina Miller of Happenings Co. does, y’know, just for fun: textile design (from hand-painted prints to hook + latch rugs) and illustration (she’s done two lifestyle and activity books, stationery, and beautiful journals). She has studied ballet and contemporary dance for more than 23(!) years and started as a painter and illustrator. Laina pays the bills with all those skills and then some, wears an art director hat for beauty and fashion brands, and also is the creative director for Happenings Co. Remember that zip-tie backdrop we used in our Key & Peele shoot? That was Happenings Co.’s magic.”
