In the contracts, each individual voluntarily commits to align his or her future deeds with ethical principles such as honesty and reliability.

Happy hunting everyone!

Liberation gives London a leg-up!

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London released the #LondonIsOpen video today to show the world that London “remains entrepreneurial, international, and full of creativity and possibility, while reassuring the more than one million foreign nationals who live in London that they will always be welcome, and that any form of discrimination will not be tolerated.” We’re proud to be a part of this campaign – and in the video – you can see our brief cameo around the four second mark. https://youtu.be/ErLq9nir41E

Jellyfishing in Toronto

We get inspired in the most unusual of places.

We loved the UV jellyfish aquarium at the Toronto Aquarium.

New York, New York

The New York skyline has been changing quickly over the past few years. We love 432 Park Avenue designed by Rafael Viñoly which seems to have popped up from nowhere since we were last here.

We look forward to visiting this fast paced city again in the near future to see how the addition of even more super-skinny skyscrapers change the views.

The High Line

We walked the length of the High Line - a disused railway track converted in to an elevated garden/walkway. We took a stroll through Chelsea form West 34th Street all the way down to the Meat Packing District.

Negroni Pop Up

We were very excited by the news of Shoreditch’s latest pop-up - The Negroni Bar at Red Gallery, just around the corner from our studio. We stopped by last night to take a look at the interior design and to try a couple of the 30 Negroni variations.

Open May 11th until May 21st.

A trip to Berlin definitely involves a visit to East Side Gallery, an international memorial for freedom.

Cocktail

We had a great time at our cocktail making course last week in Shoreditch. Some of us took to it better than others…. Espresso Martini anyone?

Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech

Found a calming retreat within the bustling city of Marrakech, Jardin Majorelle - a dreamy oasis full of exotic plants from five continents. In amongst the garden, I came across this astonishingly vibrant Moorish buliding with a hint of Art Deco, glowing with an intense blue. Beautiful.
