Standing in a sunny Tribeca photo studio, I can’t help but chuckle at the scene before me: Our photographer has rented an old-school projector—the kind your high school algebra teacher might have used to lull your class to sleep—and placed upon it a sheet of transparent cellulose, printed with digital code, to cast numbers, letters, and symbols over Jason Wu and model Josefien Rodermans. A striking visual, to be sure, but more than anything, it’s a charmingly antiquated way to look at data.
"I mean, the sense of entitlement!" Giles Deacon announces to a flabbergasted audience at the Madison Avenue showroom of the members-only shopping service Suite 1521. The offending situation? An accordion-pleated, futuristic ball gown that the designer loaned to a certain It girl for a red-carpet event. Armed with scissors, she took it upon herself to abbreviate the centerpiece of Deacon's fall 2015 collection by lopping off its dramatic train.
A couple of months ago, Rachel Cohen and Andres Modak threw a dinner party at their New York apartment to celebrate Cohen's birthday. The spread was what one would expect from a design- conscious, well-heeled, thirtysomething Manhattan couple: The 35 guests were served buffet-style at the dining table—a sleek ebony wood affair outfitted with chic, no-frills white serving platters and meticulously lined stacks of matching dinner plates.
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".
