City Weekend: Shanghai's Rat Pack, December 2015

Our final issue 2015 added a unique spin to the usual "end of year" stories by likening locally-influential entrepreneurs to Shanghai's Rat Pack. On the cover, we assembled some of these players to recreate the iconic photo of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin on the Bund waterfront, Shanghai's equivalent to the Old Vegas Strip. The inside story featured individual photoshoots and profiles of the eleven influential characters, all of whom had made some significant local contribution that year. I commissioned the actual copy to a freelancer, but planned, edited and produced the rest of the issue, which included arranging almost a dozen photoshoots within a tight window.
