ERA404 loves work
HERBRITTS.com features the largest collection of the late photographer’s work online, while offering the opportunity to explore every aspect of his career. Dozens of editorial examples, advertising tear sheets, book spreads, and museum installation photos mixed together demonstrate how Ritts’ work embedded itself into popular culture.

Photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe has produced a wide-ranging body of work examining the ramifications of the historical outcomes of slavery, the expressly intimate moments of a family in the face of personal tragedy and a broad engagement of the history of photography.
ERA404 worked with Jeanne to create an online archive of her work, including hundreds of high-resolution photographs and an anthology of content spanning the length of her career. Visitors are invited to explore the world through her lens and even inquire to purchase fine art prints.

Rand Burrus, of RANDM, approached ERA404 in 2001 to design his vision for the Target Holiday Boat. ERA404 worked on all onsite design work for the USS Target and its adjoining three tents. The event included a display of 92 of the retailer’s hottest products for the holiday season, a redemption center, Internet ordering stations, gift-wrapping, refreshments, and Santa Claus himself, decked head to toe in a Target-dotted suit.
“It is a great benefit to be able to show a client exactly what you have in mind for a project. With my latest project, the comment I heard most often was…‘It looks exactly like the renderings. This is unbelievable!”
Rand Burrus, President
