MIA again. And this time for good reason. My day job is at the jewelry company Origami Owl, on the creative team, as the Visual Merchandising Manager. We have been working around the clock for the past couple of months putting together our latest Take Out Menu, or catalog. If you knew how many hours, how many late nights, and quite honestly, how many fun memories I have from this, you would be shocked. Caffeine became my friend, and my team became my family.
Working on this catalog was my first experience delving into the entire creative process - from conceptualization, to styling, modeling, managing photography, and dabbling in copy writing and graphic design. At the end of it all, our Take Out Menu feels like a little baby named TOM - made with lots of love and lots of labor. It has finally gone to print, and I am really, really proud of it, along with my amazing team who push me not only creatively every day, but also as a person. I'm so grateful that I get to wake up every day doing what I love, and loving the people I do it with. Work isn't work with that formula. Work is passion.
Before I go, I want to give a quick shout out to my girl Doo Dah, who is the talent behind this little sneak peek video here! Thanks for watching!
