This summer we transformed our annual team bike ride "Le Tour D'Essex" into a sponsored cycle, raising funds for a very worthy cause:  Art2Print Studio. This community graphic design studio has been doing wonderful work creating opportunities for volunteers with experience with mental health issues. For the past number of the months, we have been mentoring Art2Print and it was our aim to support them further (given recent funding cuts) by raising £2000 to help them buy much needed software/computers for their studio.

This July, we are cycling around Essex to help raise funds for Art2Print, a community graphic design studio based at Blackfriars Settlement in London.

In a recent article, serial entrepreneur Luke Johnson compared entrepreneurs to homebuyers: there are those that like to build their own houses as opposed to renovating existing properties. Doing it all from scratch is, in many ways, a harder and riskier process – but it allows you to design a house exactly the way you want it.

We’ve all done it.

Swanned into the lobby of a favorite hotel like we’re the stars in our own personal movie.  Wearing our best travelling clothes, hair and make up done, gliding through in sunglasses and an air of importance.

As hotel’s start to understand these consumer behaviors and desires, in particular the way that our experiences create a more compelling part of our identities, these personal narratives are played out in a larger scale in the stories that hotels are beginning to tell to their guests.

Each week to keep our brains ever active, creative and inspired we have a Mid Week Meathead....What is this strange meaty thing you ask? Well simply, each week a member of our team gives a small talk on a topic of their choosing. Behold a man I think is rather wonderful and a great segue into conversation into current social issues...always a good thing.

Our designer Dario had this wonderful bit for us to keep our imaginations hearty, also it makes for great dinner party conversation. Enjoy!
