Its been a pretty wild year. Two months to go, and these 2 photos kind of show how far we’ve come already. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what the place looked like in January. Since then, we’ve built up the space, grown the company with an awesome community team, launched 2.5 online magazines, managed to host both the Philippine Aeropress Championship and NAPCON board game convention, and — of course — design and build a line of our own workplace furniture too, together with collaborator, Artesania.
I just came from a meeting with our partner, Injap and we finally have set a grand launch for HoneycombManila on January 9. I’m already coming up with some crazy stuff for that, plus a new consumer-focused Coffee and Art Festival in Q1, 2020.
Stay tuned, because that’s gonna be a strong, strong start to the new decade. If we do everything correctly next year, Honeycomb will be producing three festivals and several other new internet programs. And ART! Always public art.
But we ain’t done yet with 2019. There’s still quite a bit we’re working on, including one more festival: PopExpo, celebrating pop culture and the coming together of all the things we geek out on. Join us on Nov 17 in Eastwood City. My next 2 weeks are almost exclusively dedicated to that project, which is in its third year now. Follow along, and do be sure to catch the entire team there.
PS. Showin’ my Fear Of God moccasins by Jerry Lorenzo today because I’m licking my wounds having missed out of the beautiful Air Fear Of God One in Oatmeal that I took an “L” on today. huhu
