We took a break from word. this week. Our mission is to collect inspiration from around the world that stimulates our thinking and makes us say “word.” But, we’ll be honest, with all of the fallout from Sandy, we didn’t think there was much to say “word.” about.
We were wrong. In fact, we’ve never been quite so inspired as we have been by the camaraderie, team work, support and, yes, creativity that has risen from an unbelievably challenging situation. We saw it in all of the places where you’d least expect it. At M Booth, we’ve always known that we are very lucky to work with such a great team — but we were truly reminded of that fact this week. We saw M Boothers offering each other support, sharing their homes and redefining what it means to be a team.

Our thoughts are with everybody who has been impacted by this storm. If you’re in search of power, food, a shower or just some company feel free to email the word. team and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
We’re on our way back.
