Ideasmyth’s Ideablog 2016 Themes
JANUARY : BLASTS-OFFS
Ready to launch into 2016 in 5…4…3…2…1…BLAST-OFF! Though you may not be climbing into a literal rocket anytime soon, we like to think that January is a time for blasting off, even for those of us stuck within the boundaries of earth’s atmosphere. In order to help you have an ascendant launch into the new year, we’re celebrating the boisterous, bewildering and breathtaking blast-offs that are interspersed throughout our lives at all times of year.

FEBRUARY : HAND-HOLDING
In a month that’s all about love, we wanted to connect you to one of our favorite displays of affection–hand-holding. Long known for its power to both connect and comfort, hand-holding is a staple for the Valentine’s Day month and a universal symbol for the bonds between people–whether those bonds are romantic, platonic, familial, cultural, etc. Design Process Here!
MARCH : LUCKY
Old Irish legend says that finding a finding a four-leaf clover is a sure sign of luck. But this month, we’re bringing the luck to you and serving up some tales of good fortune that’ll have even the leprechauns feeling jealous. Design Process Here!
APRIL : RAIN MAKING
Instead of waiting for a rainy day, we’ve always liked the idea of being a go-getter and making our own rain. This month we’re all about the rain-making moments that have brought great growth to your life–all through sheer ingenuity and perseverance. Design Process Here!
MAY : MENTORING
This month we’re celebrating the people who’ve helped us blossom into the people we are today. Whether they held the watering can once when you were feeling likely to wilt, spent rigorous outdoor hours watering and weeding, or sat by your side and coached you through your growth, we believe all mentors are worth honoring. Design Process Here!
JUNE : SUMMER LOVIN’
Now that the summer wardrobe’s out of storage and the subway platforms are beginning to feel like the insides of ovens, we thought its time for a little summer positivity. Thus, we bring you this month’s Summer-Lovin’ theme, during which we celebrate all the things we love the most about summer–from the relaxing beach visits to the ice cream cravings. Design Process Here!
JULY: FREAK FLAGS
Here at Ideasmyth, we’re big believers in celebrating innovation–those who boldly go where no one has gone before and pursue their passions–however niche–with heart and confidence. Given that even the deepest hibernators are out enjoying the sun, we thought–what better time than the summer to get out there and let our freak flags fly high? Design Process Here!
AUGUST : SURFING
In honor of one of summer’s most thrilling activities, we’re celebrating moments of grand wave-riding adventure. Though the moments won’t always be about literal surfing, they will be about the brand of boldness required to stand on two feet while there’s nothing but a surfboard under you–and about the tsunami-sized waves you’ve fearlessly (or at least with tamed fear) ridden to the shore. Design Process Here!
SEPTEMBER : REAPING REWARDS
At Ideasmyth, we’re all about celebrating hard work and perseverance. That’s why this September, as we head into the final push before the end of the year, we want to laud the rewards reaped from all that hard work–because there’s nothing like sitting down to eat one of the apples you worked all day to pick. Design Process Here!
OCTOBER : MONSTERS
Since the entire month of October is basically one giant celebration of Halloween (candy included), we thought there was no better time to celebrate the mild and amiable monsters of this world, as well as the people who face the more malevolent monsters head-on. Design Process Here!
NOVEMBER : FAMILY TIME
Given that Thanksgiving is the day when most Americans celebrate their families, this month we’ve decided to celebrate the diverse families that impact our lives–whether they’re made up of people we’ve been stuck with since birth, or whether they’re a hodgepodge group of people we’ve met along the way. Design Process Here!
DECEMBER : GIVING VS. GETTING
Anyone who participates in the gift-giving of the holidays is aware that the giving/getting balance is a difficult and complex one, as oftentimes giving is, in itself, rewarding. This month, we’re exploring the nature of that relationship and the many experiences of those involved in all sides of the gift-giving/getting process. Design Process Here!
