Toward perennial

All we are trying to do is get people to slow down in this fast-paced, dizzying world, and consider our work.

First, we have to earn attention. Then, we have to win trust. Then, we have to convince people to come back without a carrot, flash, or a prompt.

Standing out in a world of ubiquitous ads, SEO hacks, and influencer polluters are hard. 

The machines give people what they think they want: more vulgarity. 

People are unaware of what they want and why they want it.

The dopamine-spitting hooks cultivating attention may be killer. But they’ve already outlined their destination to the end.

Honest, timeless work comes pre-optimized. It races to the top, albeit more in the pace of a tortoise rather than a hare.
