Mindful marketing to amplify mindful living.

Dot Think’s digital partnership helps Elephant Journal spread the good life beyond the choir.

Elephant Journal is the internet’s leading resource on modern mindful living and has been working to share unique perspectives, eco-living and mindfulness for almost twenty years.

In a technology-driven design partnership, Dot Think and Elephant Journal work together to  design and develop themed months that speak to target demographics – from self-care and eco-living, to intimacy and motherhood. And every month, Elephant Journal collaborates with a mindful partner innovating in the same space.

Dot Think designs and develops custom landing pages to support monthly themes, complete with unique theme logos and imagery. Working closely with the editorial team at Elephant, we change out imagery, develop creative and ensure pages are optimized across devices and browsers. Once launched, Dot Think assists in campaign rollout with graphics and ad placements across email, social and on-site placements.

With themed landing pages drawing an average of 25,000 visitors per month, Elephant Journal readers are truly enjoying this editorial and design curation of mindful media.

Bridgeport Arts Trail – November 8th – 11th

As a graphic designer, board member at Bridgeport Arts & Cultural Council and the daughter of a career fine artist, I’m excited to invite you to be part of a weekend that’s close to my heart: the Bridgeport Arts Trail, happening the weekend of November 9th.

All across Bridgeport this weekend, artists are opening their studios for a vibrant and exciting weekend that will fuse visual art, live music and curated events. As a graphic designer, board member at Bridgeport Arts & Cultural Council and the daughter of a career fine artist, I’m thrilled to be both a supporter and participant of the Bridgeport Arts Trail.

The Bridgeport Arts & Cultural Council is on a mission to empower the community of Bridgeport to  transcend challenges and thrive through the transformational power of art. Sparked by pain or joy or longing, art can invite us to embrace beauty, rally us to resilience, and unite us in a common experience of our human condition. Created from an artist’s inner song, art holds the power to lift us above our daily grind so we can play sweeter music. This weekend, we support the community of artists that call Bridgeport home … and become part of the collective experience of joy that happens when we celebrate what it means to be creative beings.

Join me on the trail at the following events. Take home a new piece of art, or simply be inspired by the magic of creation.

INTRODUCING: The 2018 color of the year is…Ultra Violet!


Open Your Mind’s Eye to Intuitive Ultra Violet (18-3838)

The 2018 pantone color of the year is confirmed. Selected for its inventive and imaginative qualities, this shade of purple is surely set to influence art, design and the runway. But don’t think this is JUST a fashion statement. Truly setting a “tone”, the pantone color of the year is chosen to reflect current cultural shifts.

We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.

Ultra Violet in Our “Extra” Lives

Associated with technology, mindfulness and spiritual discovery, Ultra Violet encourages us to feel deep and expand out. Taking a step back, we live in amazing times and technology is making astonishing advancements. But of course it is not without growing pains! In an information rich world, little remains below the surface for long. Ultra Violet reminds us that amid much digital stimulation and digging up of truths, we would do well to connect back to ourselves and to each other.

Here at Dot Think, we are so on board. Honoring the power of our combined intuition, we thrive in the realms of discovery, design, and story-telling (all with the seamless integration of technology). We also recognize the sacredness of balance and re-connection. On our downtime you can often catch us in a yoga studio, the beach, or reading up on political #resistance.

As this bluish-purple glow casts a light on our world, we you invite you to look up – The galaxy is the limit!
