The other day I received an email from Eugen Sakhnenko one half of the duo behind the Toronto online resource for creative professionals called Knock Twice. (You might remember that we own one of Eugen's photograph's. It hangs in our living room above the radiator.) He and his partner Erika Jacob's had just wrapped production on this video for floral studio Sweet Woodruff and wondered if I would be interested in seeing it.
It led me to wanting to know more about this team of two and what kind of work they get up to. It turns out they are powerhouse of ideas and solutions for creative people. Have a question about filing an invoice or doing your taxes? They have the answer. Ever wondered what it's like to be a food stylist? They interviewed someone about it. Curious about curating your own art show, how to raise money through crowdfunding, or when to work for free? These guys have you covered.
As Eugen told me, for the last couple of years they've tried to provide relevant information to freelancers in creative fields about transitioning out of school and into the work world. Through interviews, talks, as well as more technical posts, they have created original content that is useful and actionable. In the process, they've really enjoyed working with others on videos and various projects which has led them towards creating content for other businesses and individuals like Sweet Woodruff.
