We have a huge push ahead of us that we’re starting to prepare ourselves for. We’re moving to Toronto. We’ve been in Vancouver for about three years now, and though we fell inlove with this place, we never intended to stay. Thought Bubble was born out of ideas that were planted in this city, so we’ll forever be grateful to this mountainous paradise for that. We nurtured the idea, and turned it into something real, and now we’re ready to take that home. Though Vancouver would serve as a perfect launching point for Thought Bubble 3.0 (the final phase that includes our cafe), we’re just as excited to unleash it on Toronto. I personally think that the growing shift towards awareness isn’t specific to any single place, but a trend that’s spreading across the whole world. No matter where we are, we will reach our audience, and that’s largely thanks to our main broadcast mechanism, the internet (which I lovingly call the ethernet, even though I realize that doesn’t make any IT-technical sense).
In Toronto we plan to launch a full studio as downtown as we can get. We also plan to begin building our cafe, one latte at a time. Don’t mourn us Vancouverites, if things go well, we hope to open a second location in Vancouver someday soon. Not that we’d need an excuse to come back here every summer for the beautiful beaches, mountain hikes and west-coast vibe.
We had planned to have five Thought Bubbles completed before our move, and we’re going to have seven. Not only that, but we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some incredible clients that we’d always dreamed of working with. Three of those seven are in the works, and one is due for release in a week.
With our new home in Toronto this April, we’ll also launch a brand, spanking new website. A real one. This blog was always meant to be a temporary home to our progress and growth, but the time has come to build a website that will inspire our visitors to explore our work, carry forth our mission and stay in touch. We also plan to roll out a donation program, which will further help us subsidize Thought Bubbles for the thinkers you care about.
Thanks for all your support thus far, and Vancouver, we’ll always love you.
