On making their own rules and being proud of their work
Jerome: I worked on a collaboration with a sugar water company that I would never usually promote usually but they accepted my rules. I told them I wanted to do something that would be proud of doing and something my audience would really love and would love them for it! So we worked with a non-profit company in the Philippines that installed led lights with plastic bottles and solved light poverty with people. I felt this worked really well!
Garance: Exactly, it’s about choosing your projects!
Curtis: Whenever I can I try to incorporate a charity into my work. As far of New York, I support Free Arts, a big art charity, that I try to incorporate them into my projects to have them put money into their projects as well.

Jerome: And now social media is about spreading love.
