I believe creative people should keep lively and meaningful connections to be able to produce meaningful work. 
Here you can find a short-list of friends, colleagues, enemies and projects I wholeheartedly ❤️ support and I would totally advice you to check out. Most of them are other creatives I know and worked with or that I genuinely admire. Mostly are working on socially engaged projects at the intersections of art and design and are literally doing a great job out there! 💥
