A Letter to Spring- From A Restless Moth Fairy- Photoshoot

Dear Springtime and Sunshine,

Not sure if you know, but it’s time to  wake up, shake off the rain and get to shining.

These ups and downs of weather have me feeling a little restless. If I’m not able to get outside and play in the sun soon, I may develop a hunchback from all the slouching.

My house is feeling less ‘inspiring nest’ and more ‘bat cave’ by the day.  I need to get out of here. Like all the flowers, I am straining my neck toward you, I’m looking for you, and I’m tired.

Springtime? Sun? Are you guys not talking to each other? Did winter not set the clock for you?

Since I saw you last, I planted all my bulbs, read stories to all my bulbs, told them all about you, and now they are waiting for you, too. I’ve dusted my special things, I’ve made this crazy chandelier with all the gifts you gave me from last year.

I arranged flowers, I baked you treats, and still you don’t come.

I sent you an invite to my tea party, yet still you don’t come.

I just want you to know that I’m ready. Bring on the gardening, flower tending, humming under fresh leaved trees, twirling in the grass,  let’s do this!

With so much love and affection,

Moth Fairy

Mad Science Themed Photoshoot and Weirdos.

Brains1   The birth of my son had a dramatic impact on my business. I’m not talking about having less time (though that certainly is true as well). I gained a new urgency that every project I work on needs to be aligned with what our business is all about. It’s guts. It needs to be meaningful and for Lola Creative, that sort of means it needs to be…. weird.

Our clients… well…they are kind of weirdos.

Just like we are.

I’m not saying we all are wearing our underwear outside our clothing or working our Halloween costumes into regular work rotation. It’s just that our clients seem to want to connect with a little bit of the delightfully unexpected. They want newness and imagination. Something that on paper, might seem a bit odd.

I’ve always known this about our people, but I got to thinking… maybe we are not clear enough on this.

So, to make sure our freak flags are big and loud, we’ve put together some new imagery for our main site that exhibits the values of our company.  They are:

Guts, Brains, and Imagination

This mad science shoot is photographed by Easton Richmond and features the concept of ‘Brains.’ The brains component of our values identifies how essential research and planning is to our process.  Because weird without good planning can be, well, scary.

Enjoy the photos! I’m going to go nurture my inner weirdo.
