Carissa and Andrew Gallo, the creative duo behind Sea Chant, share a distinct curiosity that comes through in their photography and motion pictures. They play with subjects related to nature and human interaction through both their client and personal work. In an effort to share their latest creative endeavors in a tangible form, we created a biannual publication—the first naturally being titled First. The publication features general musings, behind the scene looks, personal projects, client work, short essays and more.

We wanted the publication to feel a bit playful, experimental and not overly precious, so we opted for a three-book structure. This created natural sections for the variety of content, it allowed the piece to feel dynamic while being handling, and most importantly it mimicked a narrative arc by guiding you through five sections with the most impressive work featured in the largest center section (the climax, so to speak).
