Collaborating is difficult. Trying to get a group of creative people who all think in different ways on board with one singular idea is a task in itself. I have been a part of a few great collabs, however a lot of collaborations that I've done have been good, but not great. Flush was different. With this series, this idea, and the people that I worked with on Flush, everything fell into place. And while we walked away with some damn good work, Flush meant so much more to me than that (and I don't mean to get all mooshy and on my emotions and shit, but this collaboration was like the poster child for collaborations). Everyone had something to bring to the table, be it ideas, or notice, or skills, or anything else. Everyone got equally hype and excitied about sharing what we created with the world. Everyone worked well together. Everyone had the same vision. Everyone was able to communicate and reciprocate that vision in the work. And most importantly, everyone got to see everything that they contributed come to life in the work. Collaborations like this are rare, but they are much appreciated.
