Detroit-based creatives are invited to apply for Jägermeister’s Concept56 campaign until January 30th. Originally launched in Amsterdam, Concept56 is coming to America for the first time and has selected Detroit as its first stop.

Concept56 puts together a team of 5 talented creatives, aged 21 and up, to go through a process of 6 months during which they design and produce the event of a lifetime. Once hired, the team will operate out of a pop-up office and receive a salary and full-time coaching from local professionals. They will also participate in weekly inspiration sessions lead by influential members of the community.

Since early December Andrey Douthard, of Paramita Sound, and local tastemaker Julian
Spradlin have been scouting the city for qualified applicants across Detroit’s many
communities. Concept56 is also working with a small select number of home-grown
photographers throughout the campaign including Detroit-based photographer Justin

“We’re looking for talented and creative individuals,” says Julian. “Most importantly we’re
looking for those who will represent an authentic side of Detroit whether they have
experience in an agency setting or not. ”

Structured like a traineeship, Concept 56 participants will gain a hands-on experience by
truly immersing themselves into the ins and outs of the creative industry. The positions
available include: project manager, copywriter, graphic designer, marketer and event
manager. Applicants must be able to commit to at least three days per week beginning in
February to fully partake in the realization of the event.

To be considered an application form must be submitted by January 30. Before announcing
the team, hopefuls will be invited to interview and make a case for why they’d be the right
person to participate in this unique opportunity. The selection process is highly competitive, only five of Detroit’s top talents will be selected.

Message from Good Sign founder Eric Dennis

by Good Sign on January 18, 2016

10849944_794198912555_3977575090857666790_nMy name is Eric Dennis and I started the Good Sign movement in 2010. My original intention was to create an icon that would serve as a positive reminder, inspire social interaction and give people a reason to be more thankful in any situation.

We are now taking that same message to the masses by marketing the Good Sign brand on consumer goods. This is a very important step because it allows us to become sustainable and to spread our signs quickly in a world that sorely needs them.

Watch for new products like these Good Sign coolers coming soon to all Bed Bath and Beyond stores across the country in March 2016! Perfect for camping, music festivals or a trip to the beach. Now you can keep your beverages chilled in style and help perpetuate our message of hope and gratitude at the same time! 4405132b-2008-4e40-a8fa-5c7b9adc54c0_400

Thank you very much for carrying and sharing our positive message over the years. Please continue to support our movement by sharing this post and visit our Facebook page This is a Good Sign regularly for updates and new product releases.

Summerdance, Nelson Ledges

By Kevin Alan Lamb Music is my moral muse. It has been a rare constant in an inconsistent world. Life is hard; laced with struggle, dissonance, and doubt; but it is also precious, fleeting, and necessitates the prophetic paradigm provided by the love, dedication, and permission to believe everything is going to be alright. We […]

Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers (Interview)

By Kevin Alan Lamb The pulsating heart of Michigan resides within its forests, freshwater, and free-spirited music-makers who instill in us a sense of home, no matter the distances the road takes us.
