Finally it is here, my manifesto.
In the Keyboard CEO course, I did at the Do Lectures, we got an assignment to write a piece and put it out there. But most important, why should anyone read it? Sure I write on social media and on my blog, but this feels different.
Walking around thinking what is important enough for you to read, nothing came out of my head on to paper…
Then I stumbled over my own words on my homepage… they are there for quite some time now, and I just discovered the meaning of them.
In small those lines are my manifesto.
It is what I believe ‘things’ can mean and do for you. I like you to care.
After almost ten years of by gitte I finally put it on paper.
Do you rather just love pieces that become part of your everyday life?
Things of understated design and high quality,
that give you a sense of wellbeing, contentment, and overtime become dear to you?
So do I!
The choices I make determine if I care.
I invest in durable and functional designs.
Materials and the way of making are of the essence, because I know, then you reach longevity, a longstanding friendship with you and my design.
I make it for you, you make it yours.
In the journey we take, with our daily essentials, we feel inspired and capable, at ease with what surrounds us. Organise and protect your tools in your workplace, it will elevate your work.
I believe happiness lies in the little things. Those actions we take every day. They can become rituals. Putting your phone in its sleeve, marks getting off the grid. Getting your pen out of its pouch, marks meaningful time. Improve your life, not just your means.
Be aware of the investment you make. So, choose, you should care.
Because I know, at by gitte, you are in for the long haul!
