And so the triptych and the project building journey are complete!
I’m super duper excited to finally be able to share this project with you!
So what are the seas calling, I hear you wondering?
They’re calling all O C E A N E E R S!
Anyone who considers themselves a sea aficionado/-a and who’s against industrial animal farming & large scale fishing – for the sake of our beautiful oceans.
I’ve lived by the ocean my whole life. I’ve paddled in her, dunked my overwhelmed head in her, lost weight with her, talked to her, taught my dog to swim in her, nearly drowned in her, painted her, fell in love in her, cried in her. She’s been my reprieve from the world, my therapist and my coach and too often, a best friend. What kind of friend would I be, if now when she needed me back, I did not also believe in her, create for her, stand up for her and fight for her?
What I love most about this concept is that its focus is on reduction, awareness and empowerment around food choices as opposed to an all or nothing approach. Because let’s face it – we all have different journeys and for many of us (me included), 100% vegan eating doesn’t fully align.
Please go check it out @oceaneers.co. Give us a follow if it’s something that aligns with where your heart is at and also hop on the site at www.oceaneers.co if you’re keen to learn more and subscribe for relevant content on all things ocean.
It’s been a massive privilege and joy to work on and I’m excited for where it goes!
Also a quick shout out to the beautifully talented @sustainablesarah of @transparenci_za for taking my logo concept and making it digital and slick! 🙏🏼 See you in the barrel🌊!
