London-based polymath working across music, fashion and pop culture

Hit me up: russelldeanstone@gmail.com

Pronouns: He/Him



EDITOR: I have edited some of the most innovative titles in independent publishing. I first cut my teeth as junior editor at now defunct style mag Sleazenation, going on to captain new rave bible Super Super, was online editor for BEAT, and breathed new life into music quarterly Notion,

WRITER: As a writer I have given my voice to publications including Highsnobiety, Attitude, i-D, and Vice. Profiled everyone from Lil Peep to Lil Miquela, Dennis Cooper, Lykke Li, Dita Von Teese, Kerwin Frost,
Kali Uchis, Yungblud, Dominic Fike and many, many more.

DIRECTION: The visual has always been a key element in my work. I’ve collaborated with some of the most exciting photography, styling, hair and make-up talent to bring to life ambitious creatives.

I’ve delivered creatives – including press bios, artwork, images, video treatments and merch designs – for artists and record labels like Virgin, PIAS, and Secretly Canadian

With extensive experience directing photographic work I am now bringing my vision to film and video as a director in my own right.


CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: I'm all about creative solutions and have delivered branded activations for some of the best – Apple Music, BEATS, Coach, Puma, Nike, Adidas, Clarks Originals and Seiko (via The Guardian Labs). This work has also included rebranding, script writing, and delivering creative concepts, like the name and editorial direction for Amazon Music’s +44 Playlist.

This portfolio is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to capturing my work and articulating what I bring to the table. Almost two decades of experience have allowed me to flex my skills in many other ways – including as a producer, stylist, set designer, commissioner, and lecturer, as well as hosting Q&A’s and events for the likes of London’s iconic Metropolis Studios.
