We love finding out more about creative darlings who inspire us, enter the Smack Bang Studio Stopover! Every now and then we will be sticky-beaking into some lovely people’s creative process and see what makes them tick. We’re all about expanding our creative community, what better way to break down some walls than to share some everyday routines and pearls of wisdom from special people we admire. This week we have a chat to the amazing sister duo behind Zulu & Zephyr (a studio fave!), Candice and Karla…
WHAT DO YOU CALL ‘WORK’?
We pour all of our creativity into four collections per year to cater to a global audience of beach lovers under the name of Zulu & Zephyr.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DO EVERY MORNING?
Two words. Strong coffee.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT’S THE BEST TIME OF THE DAY?
Early mornings, high tide, walking on the beach. After swinging by our local for strong coffee!
DO YOU HAVE ANY SUNDAY EVENING RITUALS BEFORE THE WEEK STARTS?
Just tiding up the loose ends of the weekend – time spent with dear friends, family, at our homes in Byron Bay.
WHAT’S YOUR IDEA OF WORK/LIFE BALANCE?
It’s important for us to live our brand. We spend many days doused in saltwater, surrounding ourselves with like minded creative people in and out of work.
EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL? WHY?
Early risers. You never regret a morning swim.
DO YOU EVER FEEL THE WORK/HOME LINES BLUR?
When you live and breathe your brand, it’s constantly on your mind. Where to shoot the next campaign, how does it all come together, who does the brand identify with on our social media, what plants can I pull from the garden to grow in the office… our work and home environments are an extension of our lives, so it’s only natural the two would parallel.
YOU’VE GOT A COFFEE DATE WITH YOUR 20 YEAR OLD SELF, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM?
What happens between here and now, will teach you everything you need to know for your best life yet.
