I am in charge of sales to retailers such as sundry shops and apparel brands. The process for product delivery is often a difficult one, but it brings me into contact with people in various positions and allows me to get a first-hand feel for trends and consumer shifts. RIVERS is a stimulating company, with aficionados of all kinds of genres — coffee, motorcycles, music, car races, the outdoors — and every day impresses on me the importance of being passionate and selective. I look forward to seeing how much I can intertwine work and play this year.
I am involved in design work, primarily on creating graphics for packages. My involvement in manufacturing in RIVERS has impressed on me how much the everyday act of ‘drinking’ goes beyond mere hydration, instead being inextricably linked with peoples’ lifestyles. Being in this workplace, where we create familiar yet unique objects that transcend being mere tools, is stimulating, and constantly updates my own consciousness and knowledge.
