Pattern Indy STREET ExPO VIP Reception!

I recently attended the reception of the well received Pattern Indy STREET ExPO at 416 Wabash in Indianapolis, IN and I was floored by what I saw in regards to branding.

Pattern Indy is currently a 501c3 non-profit organization that is diligently building a community of fashion, arts, media and creatives to move the city and region forward. Pattern is most known for Pattern magazine and events.

View the images in this post to get a better idea of a brand that has a consistent message and marketing design style.

The Confidence of Youth!

This past Friday, I was able to watch a group of young ladies aged 6-14 display their talents, as part of a celebration for the last day of camp. These young ladies were amazingly confident. These young women gave it all they had. The skill level varied amongst them, but the one thing consistent through out was their confidence and sense of self.

con·fi·dence - a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.

Interestingly enough, every single one of the girls that participated in a group performance showed a determination and rigor that should be commended.

Only when the groups relegated down to solo acts did a small dose of shyness, become detectable. In the shadow of shyness, determination and fearlessness still reigned supreme.

The confidence that I saw exuding from the girls on Friday, was admirable. And the youngest children in the groups seemed to be the bravest of all. Confidence is a trait that often times, fades away as you age and gain more exposure to life. Although, we should make sure that our daughters and sons are confident as they go out into the world daily.

Build, nurture and help the people in your life maintain a confidence that is unwavering. A great place to find examples of strong confidence is in the innocence of the youth of today.
