When it comes to design, sometimes it’s all about sweating the small stuff. Or so says Nick Cronan, a cofounder of San Francisco design and branding agency Branch. With a focus on advanced craft, and a penchant for intelligent work, the studio is giving home tech products exceptional form alongside their futuristic functions. “Design in home tech is now table stakes,” adds Josh Morenstein, the other cofounder of Branch.
Having been creative director of Z Zegna for almost two years, English-born Paul Surridge has managed to carve out his own niche at the Italian menswear label. "It has been a relay race where you sprint as fast as possible for the team," says the 38-year-old Surridge, whose résumé also includes stints at Calvin Klein, Burberry, and Jil Sander. "You always have to be bringing something new and never leaving anything behind."
This desire to visit India wasn’t terribly original for me. I had watched the movie Eat, Pray, Love and read the book (twice). There is a scene where Julia Roberts’ character says to her friend (and I paraphrase): “I used to have a hunger for my life. And it’s just gone.”It didn’t take much more than that to set me off on a quest to find that hunger again – lest I forget that I was hungry at all. At first I cried. A lot. And then I booked the very next flight I could, visa permitting, to Mumbai.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
