3rd Annual Hawaiian Holiday Party!

When we say TIKI, you say PARTY!

Last night marked our 3rd annual Hawaiian Holiday Party! We pulled out all the goodies we had collected throughout the year in anticipation for the special occasion. From pink flamingos to our vintage tiki bar borrowed from our friends at The Potting Shed to making the call to The Poke Hut food truck who created a special menu for us - no detail was left untouched without a little Hawaiian flair, a lot of twinkle lights, and plenty of tiki inspired holiday drinks with oh so sassy names.

We couldn't have done it without the love, support, and talent from our fellow creative friends:

Meet the Creative // The Neighborhood Journal

Our clan is growing! In late July we welcomed Eddie & Jordan of The Neighborhood Journal as our new officemates. After working with this dynamic on a number of creative projects and videos, we can contest first hand to their talent and laid back vibe. Well, we'll let them tell you what they're all about...

How did The Neighborhood Journal start?
We started The Neighborhood Journal with the idea that we wanted to document the creative people around us and build an online community where we could honestly showcase their talents and ideas through our own creative ability to tell their story.

What inspires you most about Laguna?
For us Laguna Beach feels like a place that naturally attracts creative people and seeing that happening around us pushes our creativity, naturally making us do better and work harder.

If someone’s visiting from out of town, where do you take them?
For us we most likely would take them to Ruby Street Beach and then grab food at La Sirena, if the beach wasn’t an option we would go to the Packing House in Anaheim or our favorite coffee shop in San Juan Capistrano, Hidden House. 

When you need a boost of creative inspiration how do you get it?
If we need a boost of creative inspiration we usually get it from going and exploring Orange County with our friends, watching short films, or going to live shows.  

What other types of work interests you? 
We like to come up with the best way to tell a brands story through a mix of filmmaking and photography, as well as develop growth strategies through social media and by creating comprehensive integrated web designs.

We know another huge influence for you guys is music and local bands - what are you currently listening to?

Funny you should ask...we just put out our first Summer Playlist using Soundcloud. It has it all!
