The pressure is on, we have challenged ourselves to write a blog post every week for the shop and naturally mine came after everyone else. I’d like to ask a question, where does inspiration come from?
My muse is travel and opening myself up to new experiences, talking to new people, making new friends and living outside the comfort and sometimes stiffing confines of work. EMRL is not just a job, of course, and it is sometimes very demanding when, after landing a cool client, I need to restrain myself and be patient while the creatives work out their demons and develop a brand that I cannot wait to see come to life.

I love this place, and the process, but often it is more than enough to drive me crazy and I need to recharge. Perhaps it’s just an escape instead of an edifying adventure but a few times a year I pack up the kids and head someplace different.
Over the last few years we have camped on Oahu (and almost been blown away by pounding wind and rain), walked and ate our way through Mexico City, found an apartment in the Marais in Paris (and walked), and trekked through ancient ruins in Rome. It takes alot of work to put it all together and actually get there but it’s all worth it.
Where to next?
