Locke is a new Graphis contributor. Her “Paul Mitchell Posters” were created to elevate the Paul Mitchell brand imagery with sophisticated and minimalist photography designed to inspire women looking for a new look. The photography highlights the natural movement, texture and fluidity of hair on a diverse range of models and hair types, Locke explained to Graphis.
