Dinovember Mania: A Very Messy Adventure

In case you missed it, Ocean & Sea has dino fever. To celebrate, we partnered with Dinovember and released the exclusive Believe tee (also available in kids sizing). Trying to catch up to speed? Creators Refe & Susan Tuma (authors of 'What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night'), sum it up neatly:

We've convinced our children that their plastic dinosaurs come alive while they sleep.

With November around the corner, they're following up their acclaimed hit classic with a sequel, 'What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night: A Very Messy Adventure,' now available in stores nationwide! Be sure to pick up your copy and head over to our online shop for the exclusive (and limited) Dinovember t-shirt collaboration inspired by Daydream 81.

With any special collaboration, we like to add those small design details to elevate the overall experience for our devoted sailors. However, all the hard work goes to Rex on this one with his custom rubber stamp from the marvelous people at Lumi.

Rex tirelessly stamps every single package that leaves the ship, what a champ.

Sailboat Pop-Up Shop: Time to Dream Again

[spb_video link="https://vimeo.com/137768582" full_width="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"] [spb_single_image image="3147" image_size="full" frame="noframe" lightbox="no" link_target="_self" fullwidth="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"][/spb_single_image] [spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

It’s time to dream again and we're welcoming anyone who desires to rekindle their own dreams to join us in creating that freedom.

Ocean & Sea is seeking help from dreamers across the world to build a sailboat—with a twist. This sailboat will be landlocked. It will function as a mobile Ocean & Sea pop-up shop through which we will sell our clothing, prints, accessories and lifestyle goods.

We're raising funds through our Kickstarter Project—click here to view.

[/spb_text_block] [spb_single_image image="3149" image_size="full" frame="noframe" lightbox="yes" image_link="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oceanandsea/the-sailboat-a-mobile-pop-up-shop" link_target="_blank" fullwidth="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"][/spb_single_image] [spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

We think on some level we can all relate to the purity of dreams as a child. Yet, as Peter Pan warned us—somewhere along the way we grow up and forget about our dreams.

Through our sailboat we will sail to schools, universities, festivals and dock street side; invoking people to pursue their own dreams. Through interactive art workshops, partnerships with strategic non-for-profits and giving back to local communities through our array of sea-worthy goods, we hope to continue inspiring for generations to come.

Ocean & Sea welcomes you aboard. Check out our exclusive Kickstarter incentives below and considering sailing into the unknown, dreams await in the journeys ahead. From all of us at Ocean & Sea, we thank you for your incredible generosity. We hope to see you soon on the road!

Ocean & Sea Awarded a National Gold ADDY

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

It was a long year for Ocean & Sea. The American Advertising Federation recently recognized our hard work in 2014 with a National Gold Addy from the Daydreams Project book. This award comes as both a delightful surprise and an encouragement for us to continue the journey we've embarked upon. We specifically want to thank our local AAF club in Kansas City; their support and generosity is not overlooked. Congratulations to our friends from KC who also won golds (Whiskey Design, Design Ranch, BicMedia, Bazillion PicturesVML and Hallmark).

Along with our successes, we're reminded of our failures and how important they are—we'd argue that they're far more critical than any personal success.

[/spb_text_block] [spb_single_image image="2966" image_size="full" frame="noframe" lightbox="no" link_target="_self" fullwidth="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"][/spb_single_image] [spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

The beautiful outcome of failure is its freeing power to release yourself from a bondage of fear. The fear of failing is the best way to fail in the long run and it is not healthy for sustained growth. Living in creative freedom is the most effective way to have a long and fruitful career, no matter what you do. Life is a marathon, not a race. We owe it to ourselves to enjoy life in the midst of hard work.

Ocean & Sea's #1 goal is to inspire. Not solely for our personal gain but for the simple desire of seeing the dreams in others around us flourish into reality. Maybe it's because our story as a company—and as a family—has not always gone according to plan (the good and bad). We understand on a deep personal level what it takes to make your dreams a reality—the sacrifices are significant. For every success we've accomplished, we leave numerous mistakes in its shadow. But make no mistake, it's worth the journey.

[/spb_text_block] [spb_single_image image="2965" image_size="full" frame="noframe" lightbox="no" link_target="_self" fullwidth="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"][/spb_single_image] [spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

We strive to see the dreams of others realized, even if it's through a simple smile from a Daydream or productOur happiness is in the journey; the mistakes, the successes and those that surround us with joy. We may not live for awards, but we'll take this Gold Addy with a smile.

The Captain Speaks at AAF-KC’s Gas Can Conference

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

In conjunction with AAF-KC, Brendan was recently invited to speak at the Gas Can Conference held in the beautiful Sporting Park event space in Kansas City. It was a special opportunity to reflect upon the Ocean & Sea story and internalize the why behind it all. The speakers were incredibly inspiring, it was truly humbling to be a part of such a talented lineup. Over 250 design professionals were in attendance.

Brendan frequently gives lectures at universities, volunteers at high schools and is always open for speaking in your city at local design events. Contact us for specific availability; we'd love to share our story with you and unfold the rewards of dreaming again, daily.

Let’s Play a Game of Hide & Sea

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom="no" pb_border_bottom="no" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

Ocean & Sea loves to have fun. In light of this, we created a scavenger hunt that is open to all. We call it Hide & Sea. The rules are quite simple:

1.) We hide the treasure
2.) You seek the treasure
3.) Post a photo on Instagram with #hideandsea

Locations vary in the Kansas City metro area (and select cities throughout the year). Photo clues are uploaded via our Instagram account (in addition to Twitter & Facebook) on Saturday mornings. Each winner gets to keep his/her very own Ocean & Sea Sailboat and sometimes even more (see Hide & Sea No. 24).

To join in on the fun, follow us and gather a group of friends to optimize your chances of sailing away with the loot. Dream Again with The Crew!
