Every success starts somewhere, either with big or small steps.
The first step is a fundamental indicator of who you will become. Throughout the journey, you will find yourself in various situations with heaps of barriers to overcome. However, you will also develop skills, characterise ideas, anticipate possibilities and eventually become one who is always flexible in order to achieve the most satisfying result.
In this issue, we explore the theme of Enterprising, where we present stories of journeys and success.
We sourced stories from Marrakesh and Fez, Auckland, Prague, Galle and Dubrovnik. We spoke to entrepreneurs such as Frederik Frede, founder of Berlin's creative digital powerhouse Freunde von Freunden; Mauritius-based Dan Rowden, an aspiring nomadic web developer, designer and a magazine lover; and Dutch entrepreneur and maker of handsome leather brand Mujjo Remy Nagelmaeker.
To introduce a fresh dynamic, we collaborated with Fernando Cobelo, an illustrator based in Turin, through "Ordinary Young Man".
In cultivation of our Enterprise Issue, we are also partnering with two Malaysian standalone brands — Mimpi Kita and Real Material — together with two overseas brands — Orbitkey from Melbourne and The Goods from Los Angeles.
