reating a monthly magazine sometimes isn’t pretty. But creativity is messy. It is a whole-self experience, as most life-moving endeavors are—fueling our passions, directing our course. As sure as our heartbeat, the creative flame burns within us.

In this edition, we bring special attention to creativity and to artisans, spotlighting not only their work but their passion for material and process. We also share non-traditional stories of makers, like Dr. Scott Porter, Prisma Health Chief of Orthopedic Oncology, who started a scrubs business to give back to the community, and Tom O’Hanlan, an engineer and inventor who is bringing new life to vintage Leslie speakers.

Like a paint-by-number template, we’re slowly seeing color come back to our days. The world is awakening and regaining momentum as the flicker of life grows brighter.

 

We feature a Highlands inn transformed into a modern boutique hotel; a soccer training camp helping women to discover themselves while sharpening their skills; regional gin distillers crafting varied, small-batch bottles; and Greenville’s first-ever rooftop bar devoted to gin cocktails. Additionally, we present our local boutiques and jewelry designers in a style feature celebrating shades of green, March’s signature color.

Like a paint-by-number template, we’re slowly seeing color come back to our days. The world is awakening and regaining momentum as the flicker of life grows brighter. We’re excited by this energy and thrilled by the opportunity to begin anew. Our goal is to produce the most informative, entertaining, and design-forward publication, so I invite you to reach out to us. What do you enjoy about TOWN? What would you like to see more of? We would love to hear from you, dear reader. You are essential to our creative process—and it’s through collaborative conversation that inspired ideas are born.

Meanwhile, we will continue to deliver our best—and we look forward to bringing you along.
