Bridging the gap between the digital expression of W&D and the physical manifestation of what we’ve built is the ultimate dream for me. And sometimes when you want to tackle a goal that lofty, the pressure to make something AMAZING right out of the gate can be debilitating. Throw your own personal style into the mix and you’ve got yourself a real internal battle of the inner critic and ego! About a year ago, when I started to seriously consider our foray into product development, I spent the next 4 months designing every day. I looked at the brand through a broader lens and brought in voices that aligned with our brand values to see how they interpreted the W&D ethos. All of it helped me finalize a number of product lines that are designed not just with my own personal tastes in mind, but with you, the reader, in full focus. To make something for you feels all the more personal, and as a result, my love for this brand grew tenfold, because, without readers, it’s just me talking to myself and some friends about whatever friends talk about. So, thank you for being the inspiration behind everything we’ve made this year.
Alright. Now, I’m excited to share the first two collections to be released! We have partnered with Target to offer a limited-time Pet and Travel Collection! Both lines will run until the end of the year, December 31, 2017. So, whether you are craving adventure or in search of the perfect sweater for your prized pup, we have a little something for you.
In an effort to say thank you to all our loyal W&D readers, I’m also excited to announce that we are holding a GIVEAWAY today, just for you!
