Setting Intentions for 2019


Looking back on 2018, we are immensely grateful to have worked alongside such inspiring talent within our team as well as among our clientele. Our business truly has taken shape through our incredible community as well as our new headquarters helping us to further our capabilities and dreams for 2019. 

This year we worked on infrastructure and that kept us grounded to create a strong foundation for what’s to come. We have experienced such incredible opportunities in the two years since we started and we took 2018 to create a strong base for what we hope to build. We love being able to professionally partake in projects such as hotel expansions and experiential activations and we are excited to hone in on those two aspects which truly define what The Setting does best. In the coming year, our goals are to continue to creatively contribute for our clients, to learn more about production possibilities within the handmade space and to focus on our tailwinds in travel, hospitality and tabletop. 

The Setting aims to enhance consumer and brand experiences and that has become more possible than ever with the appointment of our two newest team members, Tanvi and Reine. These two talented young women have been working alongside us for several months and will transition into integral roles across all projects next year. Which leads us to the most important part of our letter… Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way. We feel more grateful than words can express. We are motivated by our mentors and by those who guide us with their wisdom, experience and insight and we look forward to continuing this amazing journey in 2019! 

Happy New Year!!!!
Amanda & Billur
