Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a journal, a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them.
2.5 years ago Mackenzie, Abe and I were sitting in Woodcat every day from the time it opened to when it closed trying to figure out how to get people to hire us for a newly formed company we called MOUTHWASH Studio.
This weekend, all 10 of our full time team members took a trip out to Big Bear for our first team retreat in a 9,500 sq ft cabin. It was way too big for us and made me feel like a kid again.
Every day I get to wake up and work on projects that feel meaningful with the most talented and hardworking group of individuals. Here is our team today. Send them all my love.
We asked everyone to send things from their camera roll that they captured throughout the weekend.
When I look at these images, the only thing I can think about is that we’ve come a long way.
