This November, as the temperatures start to drop, the leaves pile up, and we pull out our scarves and sweaters, we’re finding solace and inspiration from what we’re calling “The Great American Road Trip.” With the global pandemic now converging with the winter season and drawing us all back indoors, we’re craving the freedom of the open road and the promise of adventure; the freedom to set our own destination, and to determine whatever path we choose to get there; the freedom to explore, get lost, discover, connect, and create.
We’re thinking of the freedom we have to make our voices heard, and the freedom we have as individuals to contribute to the greater good of our communities, our cities, and our society. This gets to the heart of what we believe in here at Brand Bureau—that as designers, strategists, artists, and makers, we have the incredible opportunity to make the world a better, happier, more hospitable place for everyone. As we all think about what it means to shape our own journeys, be it our next road trip or the future of our country, we hope you’ll join us in making each vote count.
As we head into November, our collective is turning its sights on The Great American Road Trip. Dedicated to all of the fellow ramblers, wanderers, and pioneers at heart, this month's inspiration features our favorite travel journals, the on-the-road essentials, and a curated 61-song playlist to help spark your next big adventure.
