Do You Have a Lifestyle Oracle?

Unlike B, many of us want the experience but don’t want to do the research, hence the historical benefit of a travel agent. Nowadays people are after so much more than just travelling to a destination; we want an experience of a lifetime, and the inside scoop.

Cheers! There is no ‘I’ in TEAM

Collaborative working is the key to the future success of small creative businesses. But, in an industry known for egocentric ways and a focus on ‘brainstorming over budget’ – how easy is it to bring creatives together to create a winning team to deliver a big vision, manage budgets and ‘make money’ (a phrase that often gets lost with ‘creative purists’) .

Is It Because I’m Black?

For us at SKZeD the answer is YES. Also we love the fact that you are Black but to be frank, in the words of Michael Jackson’s 1991 hit, it doesn’t matter if you are black or white…just don’t let a crisis change what you stand for – be true to yourself; ride the wave, allow the crisis to provide you with ‘brand’ lessons; remind people about ‘the essence’ they loved in the first place; and focus on getting better at enhancing that experience.

Creating Brand Love

As soon as you see Ouigi or walk into Brooklyn Circus you don’t just see – you feel the essence of the brand – ‘classic aesthetics and antique motifs whilst upholding the pillars of modern design’. It seems we aren’t the only ones that are feeling Ouigi Theodore this month. Last week he was captured on The Sartorialist (see picture above) a blog famous for featuring the trendiest people on the street. Love this photo. It’s a beautiful portrait.
