The OFB Mobile Creative Worklife Tour. Southwest Loop 2010

Big Sur and back. Kerouac, Red Rock country, 50 pawn stops and 4,853.7 miles.


The goal was simple.  Live in my trailer, see the beautiful places in between the big places, live simpler, eat better, sleep more, surf, hike, bike, spend every night by fireside, spend MORE time with family...and well, prove that the the mobile creative worklife is a good life. As far as getting my work done...Of course I did this with my mobile office in tow. I had everything I needed. Computer, mobile internet card, great online communication tools, iPhone and of course my New Mexico Pinon Coffee. 
 
I wont say much other than I have never been so creatively inspired in my life and never felt more refreshed...and I can't wait for the Fall tour! North by Northwest.
 
Living in the trailer, especially with family, makes me realize how much clutter exists in our modern lives. Simplicity = good. And as always, seeing new things brings new ideas. I'm anxious now to execute those ideas. 
 
I took literally thousands of pictures on this loop to the west coast and back via the great US Southwest. I thought it would be fun to post 406 of my favorites shot with my iPhone.

RELATED WORK

CONTACT.

becoming a client.

Through many years of experience, and quite a bit of soul searching, we have found a way to live lives that help us generate our best work. It's why we look so happy in pictures. Our dedication to exploration and being uncomfortable keeps us inspired, constantly expands our world-view, and brings us mindful rest to refuel and rejuvenate our creative thinking. To find the balance between long immersive journeys and having the proper time to craft our work… we limit the number of clients we work with annually to fit within our 9 month work season. We also work hard to work with people who also share a healthy outlook on work and life. Having the right clients (not just big ones) is critical for not just enjoying our work, but generating brands that matter and endure over time. Brand building is mentally draining, in a great way, when you have a healthy working relationship with the people on the other side of the table. We expend all of our energy into making new things for people we work with. It requires trust and aligning what you want out of a partner with who we are. Different firms have different styles, different approaches, different goals, different values, and different definitions of success. We are just plain different on many levels. Finding the right fit can determine a lot about what we can create together. We hope we are a good fit for you. Send us a note and let's find out. We would love to hear about what ideas you need help bringing to life, or reinventing.  

 

Keep Fast, and safe travels.
