Last year our team jumpstarted our creative practice by inviting personally motivated projects into the studio. We divided into teams, picked captains and gave ourselves 3 months to execute. And then — because we had all the power and it would’ve been silly not to abuse it — we awarded ourselves a Round 2.
Suffice to say, by the time we wrapped our Pet Projects in Spring, we were fraught from our own good intentions.
To keep the passion and our remaining brain cells alive, we’ve decided to suspend the aforementioned experiments. In their place, we’re setting aside a full day for Social Work this winter, uniting as a team to work on Social Projects for Social’s sake.
As we shed a collective sigh of relief at our new, streamlined approach to collaboration, it’s worth noting the oodles of great stuff that our Pet Projects accomplished this past year:
Countless hours of collecting, correcting and cataloging more than 1,500 images for purchase or download have delivered one helluva stock collection. Check out our newly lowered prices, FREE downloads / desktop backgrounds and updates from a recent cross country trip. Then go get you a FREE fall image now!
Our experimental music discovery app may be based on something as fickle as the weather but, with 836 downloads and a hit tip from HOW magazine, it’s become the go-to music app for a growing legion of loyal fans.
In August we sent out our first fancy proposal using or new, custom system. So far the seamless transition has only been met with one old-school-how-do-I-print-this-thing response. Not too shabby for the proposal system that was once just a dream.
A small project that dared to dream big, we’ve already shipped more than 40 items around the country! After a year of crafting and self-reflection, the time has come to transition the line. Next month the collection moves to a personal site, demandingart.com, where it will continue to ebb, flow and unabashedly freak out!
On behalf of Team Social, we appreciate you supporting our many adventures. We look forward to sharing many more!
