American Express and The Brooklyn Balloon company
I was asked by American Express Open Forum to shoot a story on the Brooklyn Balloon Company for an article about small businesses. I met Robert Moy, at his apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Robert, the owner and talented balloon artist behind company, has a background in fashion, art and design. So it's no surprise his current creations have been inspired by these past experiences.
Beyond standard balloon art, Robert can create a wild variety objects from a Louis Vuitton handbag to a cast of characters from children's cartoons. He has even created a balloon facsimile of Tyrion, his favorite character from the Game of Thrones. My personal favorite piece of Robert's was one he did of Keith Haring's, 'Five Guys Dancing'. All of this has led to working with clients such as Estee Lauder, Marc Jacobs, Brooklyn Museum, Whole Foods and Vogue among many others.
My time with Robert was short, but rewarding. Thank you Robert for making me feel like a kid again!
