Summer is officially in full swing, and with it a careful return to socialization that feels both shockingly soon and a long time coming. As we consider dusting off our suitcases and filling up our calendars with out of office notices, we detect a familiar feeling creeping back into our collective psyche: excitement.
For many of us, being away from those we care about was the hardest part of the past year; and as an organization rooted in hospitality, not being able to travel was a close second – which is why we’re thrilled to share our collaboration with the Viceroy Hotel Group, as well as a few of our favorite places to visit on your next long weekend.
Whether your summer plans take you to faraway places or local adventures closer to home, we wish you lots of good times ahead.
Stay cool out there,
SUMMER INSPIRATION The Return to Travel
We’ve partnered with one of our newest clients, Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, to create their 2021 summer campaign. Our multi-channel digital campaign encourages guests to rediscover the magic of travel and make their daydreams a reality, through limited-edition add-ons at every Viceroy destination. From sunrise hot air balloon rides high above the mountains to making cocktails with a top local mixologist, it’s a chance to plan the getaway you’ve been dreaming of.
While July 4th has long been celebrated as the country’s day of independence, this year we finally celebrated the entire country’s independence with the addition of Juneteenth as a national holiday.
The day the President signed the new holiday into law, our studio participated in the first of many all-hands meetings with Think Forward Society. Together, we are honestly and openly discussing what diversity and inclusion means for our organization, and making the necessary adjustments to put inclusivity at the forefront of our company culture.
One of the many ways that we have already begun this process is through the recognition and promotion of our talented peers of all races, ethnicities, genders, and backgrounds. This month we’re happy to highlight a few of the Black creators who have caught our eye.
