Our Story

Everybody has a story.

Here’s ours.

I’m Tauhir Jones, founder of Suit & Artist. 

I’m an entrepreneur, a producer, and an artist.

So, when I needed a creative outlet from my corporate day job, I started helping artists and creative professionals promote themselves and produce events.

We developed creative projects, experiences, and interactive media of all kinds: 

Art installations at local galleries, splashy promotional events for liquor brands, short films, private after-hours loft parties, underground (read: illegal) House music sets, block parties, and live performances.

Why did I do this? 

To wake up a side of me that had been dormant. I’d worn the suit and now I was being an artist. 

Marketing and promoting artists and events taught me invaluable lessons about the business of art and entertainment and earned me a reputation for leading projects, building partnerships, marketing, and helping artists develop new revenue streams. 

Clients started to trickle in by word-of-mouth and I realized I was running what was essentially an agency.

So, I recruited a small team to help with the growing workload, incorporated the business, and called it Suit & Artist, Inc, which describes our philosophy and how we approach our endeavors.
