A quick update in the midst of shuffling boxes around… The change from June to July meant far more than turning a page in the calendar this year. Not only did I move house over the long weekend, but I’m stoked to now have a proper office space tucked in the corner of Unit 8 – 280 Perry Street (aka Page Design). I’m still an independent Creative Free Agent, but benefit from the great creative energy and space the Page crew have. They’ve been very welcoming and it should be barrels of fun… micro-scooter races anyone? If you’re in the neighbourhood, stop in and say hi!
On the topic, I have to give a big thanks to Katie who let me set up shop in her home office for the month of June while I was between workspaces. Big thanks too, to Lisa and Marlon who graciously hosted my daughter and myself for a few days. I’m lucky to have such great people to call friends.
This time of year sees several of my winter sport clients moving into a rebuilding phase in their yearly cycle – taking stock of their material, evaluating the previous efforts and developing new marketing to build on momentum from the past year. There’s some exciting projects in the works, including a set of athlete trading cards for Cross Country Canada. This is also the time of year when most of the organisation-level material gets it’s due – handbooks, stationery, sponsorship material, etc. If you are in a similar position, now is a great time to get in touch and start planning for next season.
July promises to be steady away from the desk, too. Training is (slowly) shifting into high gear for a couple upcoming cycling events. The Noble Pursuit will be a 150km ramble through Peterborough County, ending up with a night at Brio Gusto swapping war stories. August will see Ride for Africycle, 5-day trip to Kingston and back with a slight detour through the treasures of Prince Edward County, can anyone say wine tour? I’ll be sending out emails in the next while looking for people interested in supporting this great cause.
Finally, I’ve really come to love having an iPhone in my back pocket on the bike. So many great pics around every corner in Peterborough County. These are just 3 from the last month or so.
