Chazz Layne

Designer, Photographer, Author, Adventurist

Welcome to daughtcom! is an experimental site where I share content unhindered by the censors. Here you’ll find artwork and photography, rants and musings, write-ups on DIY projects, and occasionally get a glimpse at new designs I’m testing for unreleased projects. Stick around and explore some of those “what if’s?” they warned us about, and stay in the loop with your social of choice:

Like what you see? Show some love by commenting and sharing—your feedback keeps me inspired to create. Of course grabbing some merch, shopping our creations, or buying us a drink (Patreon) always helps too: all proceeds help offset the costs of making new content.

For business inquiries, please contact me through The Layne Studio.

About Chazz

I’m a creative and adventurist based in Prescott, Arizona. Born in Southern California—but raised with the independent spirit of solo travel—I’ve been gifted with an eccentric mix of aesthetics, logic, minimalism, and wanderlust. I live my life with the philosophy of a curator, and subscribe to the mantra “Less, but better.”

Passion for adventure fuels my work as creative director of The Layne Studio, bringing creative vision to clients in the adventure, automotive, and outdoor industries. In addition to my work as a creative gun-for-hire, I’m a regular contributor to several travel and adventure publications.
