After years of working with Nike in Portland, OR as Creative Directors, Keith Crawford and David Odusanya co-founded Solace Cremation in 2019. The idea came about after their own personal experiences with the death of a loved one and this inspired them to integrate their design expertise and innovative consumer-driven approach to the funeral industry.
The concept of the service they provide to families is the acceptance that they cannot make the loss any easier and take away grief, but Solace can make this part of the loss a lot easier and less confusing. This is another great interview by the Glam Reaper, in which she aims to help people to make informed decisions on the methods of disposition available these days.
