_We are MangoRed

WELCOME TO THE NEW mangoBLOG.

Our healthy crew is composed of photographers, illustrators, layout artists who are just as passionate about our work as the two of us. We are comfortably and chummily left-of-center. We have to confess that we’ve never been to art schools nor earned a major design degree…coz despite its pluses, we reckon this isn’t for everyone..let alone for us. In our case, the real world is the best course.

Our vision is based on principles of openness, directness, irreverence, democracy and a dislike of institutions and pretensions.

We’re always looking for the culturally relevant work and staying current with the hive mind. It’s intuitive, a lot of it. We think it’s just experiencing how far you can keep your mind open on a daily basis, and paying attention.

We’d like to describe our work as a tickle in your brain. It’s not just the quality of the idea, it’s the quality of the execution, the finish. the unique spin in colors, the lines, perspective..when these elements align, they create a visual perfume.

_Hello 2016!

THANK YOU 2015_
H E L L O 2016!
_EXHALE
INHALE

Please bear with our lengthy sappiness. We stop and reflect in gratitude on the year that has passed.

THANK YOU TO OUR TEAM.

Thanks for being so hard-working!
Thanks for (voluntarily) working in odd shift hours. The tell-tale bloodshot eyes are hard to miss.
While shooting, editing and running around the office is physically tiresome -
it is also full of joy and life :D

We don’t mind you playing your fave Spotify album to death ( as you stare at a screen for hours on end )
We’ve all developed high tolerance for each other – and for schmaltz in effect.

Thank you for bearing with our Dark Ages temper.
We’ll temper it down as we move along (key words: soft encouragement)

We ask for your support in our change to a democratic no-rules, no-bosses, organic, hand-made artisanal mom-&-pop-operated joint.

BIG THANK YOU TO OUR CLIENTS.

Thank you for putting trust in our work.
The shoots, esp the prenups are quite intense.
Thanks for bearing with the boiling heat and muddling through almost anything.
( There’s no getting around it really! )

Thank you for finding humor in every bad situation.
The happy accidents make for much fun & memorable photos.

We’re happy to help enflesh some of your misguided childhood fantasies.
There’s nothing more exciting and rewarding than seeing these MILESTONE EVENTS brought to life.

Because you’re just too genuinely kind to treat us as your own, we share & guard these visions as ours too.
After all, there’s no bigger motivation than working toward a common goal.

THIS IS A ONE SHOT DEAL. We’ll help you do it right.

Thank you for trusting in the outcome. Hope we delivered.

Million thanks again. You guys are legendary!

THANK YOU TO OUR CO-SUPPLIERS.

We want to thank our friends -
The stylists, makeup artists, videographers, coordinators and beloved kins in the industry.

WE’RE ALL IN GOOD COMPANY.
There’s no more rewarding job than working with like-minded folks that you love and inspire you.
The real belly laughs in between sets make work alot easier.

Thanks for trading tips ( like new secret spots to hang out & sink piss with )
Thanks for being the creative catalysts that you are – for helping us hone the ability to look for the next step.

Thanks for imparting precious advice.

We will carry these wisdom to our graves.

WE’RE KEEPING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE FOR the NEW YEAR

Note to self for the nth time : if you’re married to the process of creation – it’s bound to get messy – always.
Never easy. But so much fun plotting outlandish schemes for our adventurous clients.
(Outer space weddings, anyone?)

BIGGER PLANS for THIS YEAR?

We’re a small business.
It’s easy and personal – we’d like to keep it that way.

IT’S INSTINCTUAL.
We’re constant seekers of experiences & fan of the random
We have the convenience not to overthink and to poke fun at ourselves.
We intend to keep it cool and not feel like chased by bees.

ANYWAYS, HERE’S TO CELEBRATING -
WHERE WE HAVE COME FROM & WHERE WE ARE GOING!

We’re more than happy to take you along for the ride.

Cheers from Tweedledee & Tweedledum and the huggably dorky mangoRED team!
