It is here, LOVE ON DESIGNERS 2021. Kim Panella and I started this endeavor in 2018 and have been doing it ever since!
WEEK 1 is ENERGIZE
Pre-Covid I would say take someone to coffee, bring someone a coffee or soda or red bull.
This year you could buy someone a coffee card. Have you seen, https://www.buymeacoffee.com/? Maybe some of your friends have this set up?
Be positive energy for others in meetings this week.
Here are the prompts for this week, try and do one of these this week. Snap a photo and use the hashtag #loveondesigners when you post it. Post an energizing quote and tag a friend who could use some energizing (remember to use the #loveondesigners tag)
Week 2 is ENCOURAGE
Create a post and share an encouraging word on social media specifically to someone who needs a lift. Tag them and use the hashtag #loveondesigners
Send an old fashioned letter to someone who you know who has been killing it in our industry.
Direct message someone and let them know you have seen their work and know how much time and energy they have been putting into it and it isn’t going unnoticed.
Week 3 is RECHARGE
This is a week for you, so focus on you and giving you what you need this week. Shoot a picture and use the hashtag #loveondesigners this week and let us know how you are taking care of yourself this week.
Take a walk or a hike.
Give yourself an at-home spa day.
Watch a movie.
Take a nap.
Do something that refuels you, take a picture and use the #loveondesigners.
Week 4 is CONNECT
This week we want you to reach out to someone you don’t know and tell them how their work / life has inspired you.
Create a Social Media post and tag them (and us) telling them how they have inspired or helped you.
Reach out to a mentor and let them know how much they have meant to you.
Send a card to someone you have looked up to, to their office. Do a little digging and find the address. And craft an incredible envelope to go with the card.
I hope you will join us as we lift up the design community this month and spread the love.
