TRAVEL - VMWK STYLE
The combination of travel and photography is one of our favorite ways to be inspired for design by capturing pics of our beautiful world. While Facebook has been teasing us with trips down Holiday Road (we love the memories that pop up each day!) and we’ve been able to turn to travel shows, films, and virtual experiences this year to keep wanderlust at bay, there’s simply nothing like the real thing! While we hope to experience more of the globe very soon, 2020 was the year the world went local.
In Australia, we are fortunate to have an entire continent to explore! Since the easing of lockdown restrictions, Australians (and people around the world) have chosen to travel domestically, taking road trips, exploring small towns, scenic drives and nearby natural wonders and beaches. The trend for open spaces and nature is definitely continuing in 2021, and interest in international travel has increased following the news of vaccines. Road trips are expected to remain common (as they guarantee comfort and freedom for self-drive travellers) and homegrown group coach tours will also be popular. Cruise lines are reporting strong bookings for summer 2021 and airline travel is expected to pick up in the second quarter of the year, with international outpacing domestic travel.
Adjusting to travel in a new era after such an unsettling period will require fine-tuning what we do and plan. We will need to learn to be more vigilant about checking travel websites to understand where we can safely go at any given time, wearing masks at airports, packing sanitiser and even carrying vaccination certifications. We will also need to embrace a sense of tolerance and develop (even more) patience - expect health and temperature checks, capacity limits at attractions, timed visits and meals and even quarantine.
With the promise of a return to travel, don’t forget to look back (thanks again Facebook!) and celebrate the adventures you have already enjoyed! Whether that means creating photobooks or wall art with your own travel photos hiding in your camera roll, or by choosing to create a gallery wall of your favorite travel spots with VMWK’s Travel Series range. (Be sure to check out our “7 easy steps for how to hang your Wall Art” blog.

HOW DO WE GET TO KNOW YOU? With our design brief!
After you have placed an order, we work closely with you to get to know your personality and style by asking you to complete our Photo Wall Design Brief. It doesn’t take long, and it is easy to complete online! It provides us an invaluable insight into your family and your theme for your order. It also helps us learn your color preferences and design styles, so that our design team can better understand your family and the placement of your wall art. Ultimately, this will help us know how to best capture your memories (and it’s a fun little exercise!).
The Brief also gives you the chance to make special requests or let us know specific details of what you would like included in your perfect design. (Of course, you can always contact us via email or on our social media if you have any questions!). Once completed our design team take all this
knowledge, your photos, and your product choices, and get to work designing your perfect keepsake.
