I've discovered recently that I'm somewhat of a cinephile. I thought I just liked things that made me feel nice to watch, but I love the trivia and behind the scenes facts. I find myself deep diving after every season or movie learning things about production and the actors and the various challenges they faced with filming.
Recently, we started our re-watch of Ted Lasso so that we're current for the new season. After the second season in 2021, I started thinking about all the things I loved about the show, and how watching it just didn't feel like enough. I found myself texting quotes back and forth with some friends, and we just felt like we couldn't get enough of the show! So naturally, I started designing some things.
My friend Traci, of Lock & Co., was one of the people who I discovered was a fan like I was, and she just happens to be a phenomenal photographer so we started chatting about our favorite Ted Lasso quotes.
I realized that TV shows can not just be your escape from reality, but can continue to evoke that feeling with products. My entire product line is based around bringing joy - either through order or by being a reminder of something joyful.
I hope to continue to add more products from TV Shows & Movies that speak to me. If there are any that really resonate with you - please do share! I always love adding to my list of "things that I love"!
