For four years, Mockingbird Domestics was a can’t-miss stop on South Lamar for anyone looking to buy a clipboard to hang interchangeable art or have a custom dining table made. When the retail store and shop, owned by Jeff and Laura Daly, closed in August 2016 due to rising rent, decor enthusiasts and artisans mourned. “Change is hard,” one fan wrote on Instagram. But a little more than a year later, the Dalys are back in business—albeit with some modifications.
Amazing. That was the first of two reactions that Shane Adams had when, late in 2016, he and his wife, Lisa, saw the real estate photos of a three-bedroom condo that was for sale on the 29th floor of The Residences at W Austin. What elicited that reaction? The online photos showed a 3,482-square-foot unit that was beautifully finished, with a gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry and two balconies as well as spectacular, panoramic views of Lady Bird Lake and the Texas Hill Country.
As soon as Kyle Adams hired interior designer Komal Sheth to completely overhaul his newly purchased condo in the W Residences in 2016, she gave Adams an important assignment. “I asked him to go around Austin, check out some art festivals and look for something that’s unique and different,” Sheth recalls. Adams obliged and found a 5-by-5 abstract painting of a woman from the shoulders up. The piece of art is so massive that it is painted on four pieces of wood.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
