I will start this post with something I wrote about my team, our dreams and what we aspire to be through the coming years.
Two years ago, at 9 am, today, www.thepostbox.in went live. With one collaboration, 6 products and 30 designs.
And just one idea- to get people connecting again- through design.
To date, Postbox remains as that idea and we have allowed ourselves to travel through the different avenues of design to understand, what at best and large connects with our people that will empower them to start revisiting the joys of yesterday, experience the unfamiliar excitement of tomorrow and just very simply, getting delighted by what they see, touch and feel, today.
Fast forward and we stand to realize what a beautiful community of family, friends, artists, artisans, designers and just strangers who have come together to acknowledge the presence and beauty of design inspired by our rich and diverse culture.
It is this ever growing community that we are grateful for today. For helping us build our story, along with us, sending us personal emails and messages which has helped us realize the importance of why we all need to create more value today, understanding our mistakes and still believing in us- (especially our Instagram followers), we will always remain indebted to you guys for giving us and being a part of this journey to explore the reach of design in everyday life.
Now, before this gets mistaken for a Vote of Thanks speech, we'd like to just express how this idea is shaping up currently.
For us, design is everyday life. It's a pattern, it's a solution and it's a delight. It makes one wonder, and understand better. It makes one question, analyze and arrive at solutions, if not better ones. It allows us the space to think more, innovate and share it with the society we are a part of. That is the beauty of design. How it enables us to share experiences, conversations, moments and memories.
Through Postbox, through this community, we wish to reach out to as many hearts as possible to share the joy of everyday living.
Year three and many years later, this will still be a journey of this idea. And this community will only be stronger.
So thank you, you. For having our backs and giving us the confidence to keep moving on, stronger and better.
Happy Birthday, The Postbox!
