EndZone Image creative consultancy is a fresh and dynamic company created in 2006 by Mel Leonard and Semone Ballin. EndZone Image specialises in fashion styling, hair design and make-up artistry and more recently Model Management – which is growing in success!
With 15 years of experience in fashion and beauty between them, the duo had a passion and drive to bring something new to the industry and were able to turn their dream into reality with funding from the Princes Trust.
Working with the best
By the end of their first year the company was involved in some exciting and high profile projects such as the prestigious MOBO Awards. Not only did the EndZone team work back stage at the event, but they were also the head creative team for the HMV in store promotions and styled the brand identity shoot for the awards. Since then, the EndZone team have worked on ad campaigns for hair brand Sof N Free and Sta So Fro hair dye collection, Sleek make-up and New Era Global head wear brand to name a few.
Not only does EndZone Image focus on catering to fashion events such as London Fashion Week, Kulture 2 Couture and the Alternative Fashion Week. They are also rooted within the music industry which plays a big part in this fast growing company.
UK favourites Omar, Klashnekoff and Booty Luv are some of the artists to benefit from their skills. Stateside, they have worked on Rapper Busta and R ‘n’ B sensation Joe’s UK tour which also featured garments from the EndZone clothing line. As a company they strive to install the importance of strong image and marketing into the UK music scene. Hard work and determination are the ingredients which have earned this company a reputation for being unique, vibrant and original, always keeping looks fresh and truly inspiring.
Disun Majekodunmi, The European Director of Mapp Records says: ‘Working with EndZone Image on our artist Chanel [track entitled My Life] has been a joy and valuable learning experience in understanding the importance and added value styling and makeover consultants bring to the table.’
‘Mel and Semone throughout the project were on point, accommodating and brought fresh ideas…which can be judged by the continuous complimentary comments we have received from all those who use the images for our various European campaigns and promotional material.’
It is safe to say that EndZone Image are a company to look out for and are growing from strength to strength!
