Episode 20 : The WKNDRs

Don’t dip your toe. Cannonball into your next endeavor.
— Rachel Rivera
The hardest thing is to start. Just start.
— Claire Ouchi

Rachel and Claire are artists, designers and entrepreneurs based in Vancouver, Canada. They’ve been friends since college and their first business together was a vintage clothing shop. Today they are equal artists and entrepreneurs behind the WKNDRS an Art & design lifestyle brand - which is super lighthearted & where they express their fun side and get to collaborate with their favorite artists and brands. On this episode we discuss the value of having a creative partner, what it means to build a creative community around you, and why having fun should always be a priority.

If you would like to connect with the WKNDRS to say hello or to hire them to collaborate on design projects (which I highly recommend) you can:
