Hi, I’m Mitra Khayyam.
I am a Creative Director and Brand Strategist based in Los Angeles. With over a decade in branding, management, marketing and product development, I curate authentic brand experiences.
Named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s top emerging entrepreneurs in 2011, I founded the art collective brand Blood is the New Black, revived country legend Waylon Jennings, celebrated American icons like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and paid it forward to up-and-coming brands in a series of panel discussions and lectures.
My work has been found in Urban Outfitters, Fred Segal, Planet Blue, Modcloth, Selfridges, Nordstrom and better boutiques internationally and covered in the NY Times, Nylon, Teen Vogue, Refinery29, the NY Post, Fox News and others.
To keep things fun, I can be found DJing at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs, riding bikes with Levi’s in DTLA, partying with Jawbone at SxSWi, and walking my dogs in Echo Park.
