Courtney Rust Chicago styling, hair, makeup

Courtney Rust absolutely loves her job of telling stories through wardrobe and prop styling. Working with top ad agencies, magazines, catalogue houses, photographers, directors and costume departments, she feels lucky to have a job that she didn’t even know existed back when she wrote her 2nd grade essay about wanting to become a fighter pilot.

To Courtney, it is the details that tell the stories and showcase the concepts, which makes it her goal for all the elements in the frame to work together harmoniously. When she is hired for an assignment she leaves no rock unturned and tries to make everyone's job a little easier by going above her job description. She is very creative, resourceful, always budget minded, and enjoys nothing more than collaborating with other creatives.

Being based out of Chicago has allowed Courtney to work with production crews all over the map. Her clients include Coca-Cola, AT&T, SC Johnson, Draft FCB, BlackBerry, VSA Partners, American Express, Lands End, Razorfish, Playboy Magazine, Winkreative, Burger King, Delta, Modem, USPS, Windex, Cintas, Volkswagen, Young & Rubicam, Audi, Harley Davidson, Esquire Magazine and Rolling Stone Magazine.
