What’s going on in our world – design, advertising, inspiration and a lot of Swedishness.

Feeling Great and Grateful

Grateful.

That is the one word that I have in mind when reflecting on this past year. We are so lucky to be surrounded by the beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area, work amongst great friends and clients, have a roof over our heads and enough food to eat. Every year I remind myself that this is such a privilege. This privilege is not only achieved alone, but with an intricate ecosystem of people, places and experiences that fill our hearts, minds and spirits. It reminds me of the need to support this ecosystem and our community networks that give us so much.

So however you celebrate the holidays, let’s think about how we can give something back to the people and communities that make our worlds so special. Give an extra hug to a loved one, tell someone how much they mean to you, volunteer at your local food bank, donate to your local Goodwill or support your favorite arts organization. Let’s all build a stronger community together because all of this gives us life. 

Here’s to making 2016 the best year ever.
