This year our #BeCreative campaign continued with a really fun photoshoot with creative people from all walks of life. But it’s probably not going to surprise anyone who follows mayamada that cosplayers are one of our favourite groups to speak too!
Creativity comes in so many forms and from such a diverse range of people. Not only with new brands like ourselves, but from the corporate world too.
All types of people have been getting involved in the #BeCreative campaign. The response has been great, and seeing people express their creativity in their own unique way never gets old!
We believe everyone is creative, so seeing people express what creativity means to them for our 2016 #BeCreative campaign has been amazing! We’ve been able to speak to people young and old with a diverse range of talents, each one a creative character in their own right.
We believe everyone is creative so seeing people express what creativity means to them for our 2016 #BeCreative campaign has been amazing! We’ve spoken with everyone from professionals to students, illustrators to cosplayers, and the diversity in creative talent is great to see.
As the co-founders of mayamada, a Japanese inspired character brand, we’ve naturally got big ideas on creativity. We believe everyone is creative but not everyone realises it. We want that to change!
Last year we launched the #BeCreative campaign with the goal of inspiring and developing creativity in young people. Things got off to a great start with the support of 24 illustrators who expressed what creativity means to them through fantastic artwork. It even got featured on London Live TV!
When it comes to photoshoots, this summer has been a real lesson in perseverance.
We recently wrapped up our third and final shoot of the summer. One more than we intended and counting two abandoned attempts due to weather, it’s safe to say things did not go to plan!
The past few month have been a good reminder that when you make plans you can expect them to change, or even scrapped altogether (if the weather is bad enough).
Keep in mind that it’s not about trying to keep your plans from changing, but how to adapt when they do change. Adapt and keep pushing forward.
For us it meant rescheduling multiple photoshoots to get the photos we needed for our shop and lookbook, but it could be dinner with friends, a business project or that big event.
Whatever the plans, stay flexible and don’t get too discouraged if things don’t go smoothly. Oh and it helps to have a good group of people around to support should things don’t go according to plan.
Now, enjoy a few behind the scenes shot from our last shoot of the summer while we put together our plans for the rest of 2014…
After some weather delays we finally got to do our latest photoshoot in Shoreditch, on a sunny day no less.
We had a great team with us and came back with a selection of new photos including shots of our new “SAMURAI” snapback and beanie hats which will be on the ASOS Marketplace later in August.
Check out our sneak peak look at behind the scenes of the shoot.
