Hi my name is Ruby and this will be my first ever blog post dedicated to Bow & Arrow and for those who might want a bit more of an insight to who and what Bow & Arrow is. For those who might think I chose the name at random or wanted to be hipster and unique; this is far from the case. Although, it probably would have been easier that way. Believe it or not, this name has a history behind it and probably perfectly sums up the essence of who we are and what we strive to do here at Bow & Arrow.
So Kids, I'm going to tell you an incredible story. The story of how I met your mother. I mean, how Bow & Arrow came about.
Once upon a time, one chilled evening, my partner Josh and I were having a deep conversation. Something we tend to have every now and then, usually after consuming half the kitchen and being defeated by the amount of food we ate which we promised to change and fix the following Monday. We started to talk about life, love and who we were and wanted to be. You know, the usual everyday existential crisis questions. I then asked him, "If you could have a tattoo that would represent different times and stages of your life, what would yours be right now?" Pretty damn good question right? His answer? "I don't know. What do you think mine would be?" (typical lazy guy response). After answering a question with another question, I thought long and hard about it. And I answered, "an arrow". He looked curious, or hungry again, I couldn't tell... but then he asked why. I said, "Because I feel like you have big dreams, you have an idea of the direction you want to go and you want to aim high. Thus an arrow." *mentally hi-fives self with the epic response I had just given*. He smiled and said, "Well, then you're my bow because you help me want to reach those dreams". *Touché*.
And voila! The birth of Bow & Arrow. It's our team, our dreams and motivation for each other. We are two different people, two separate items that have their own purpose, but put us together, utilise our individual strengths and who knows how high we can aim. So there you have it, Bow & Arrow is an idea, it's a driver of what we do and the decisions we make. Always aiming for the stars. Always making sure that we come back to where it all began, and sharing that with those we touch in our date designs.
