We take a look back at our month of encouragement.
“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”
It’s been an incredible month for us. As we’ve encouraged you to reach and go after your dreams. Even though it was challenging, it has most definitely been so rewarding! We’ve had people share that our lettering on instagram has encouraged them in times when they haven’t felt good enough for their passions. We’ve had friends share that having our wallpapers has made feel lifted as they progress into a new job. And the response to our “Risk Takers” interviews has been so humbling!
We are so thankful for the friends who shared their wisdom, journey and their dreams with us. We’ve had so many people say that they are inspired to start making their own dreams a reality! And it’s been so fun sharing the new and ambitious projects that we’ve been working on, from a beautiful fashion film, to a watercolour fashion shoot, to the photography of a very special couple’s wedding day.
So what now? This journey has been amazing, so we don’t want you to hop off just yet! After an incredible month, we’re taking you on another adventure. It’s a ride that is not too different from the one that we’ve just been on, but it does have it’s own little flavour.
For the next couple of weeks, we are going to be sharing photoshoots, interviews, lettering and projects based on the concept of the world and it’s beauty. Surely this seems like an obvious thing to most people, but what we want to try and highlight are Two Things;
1) To remind ourselves daily to see the beauty in the little things.
2) To encourage all of us, that we have the capacity and the potential to bring beauty into this wonderful world.
We admit that this is no small feat!
But we hope that as we journey together we will bring just a little bit more inspiration, creativity, hope and imagination to your very special lives.
Beauty and Love
