How can sustainable design be used to lower the carbon footprint of the music and film industries?

We love music. Since Casa Tamarindo began, collaborating with the music industry has been part of our ethos. From firsthand experience designing shows, album covers, and festivals we know the music industry still has a lot it can do to lower its carbon footprint. Over the years we’ve collaborated with incredible musicians that also share our vision for a music industry that sings in harmony with our home planet.

Raveena

We collaborated with the talented musical artist, Raveena, on multiple set designs, including her Lucid album tour, a Tiny Desk Concert, and the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles.
