Elevating the Charlotte Brand

Hi there, readers!

As always, it’s great to be able to share the images and experiences we’re capturing right here in South Charlotte.  We are particulalry excited about this issue, “Elevate,” as we have the privilege of featuring some of the most inspiring local entrepreneurs, artists, and philanthropers in our area who are really putting their stamp of quality on everything Charlotte.

We’ve noticed from working with the expert craftsmen at Morrison Smith Fine and Custom Jewelers and individuals like Zack Gudzan – a local entrepreneur branding the Queen City and giving back to it through his new clothing line, CLTivate – that Charlotte is even more special than we thought.  Every time we seek to discover another story around the corner, we find that not only is our city packed to the brim with content, but that an elevated lifestyle seems to be the common thread among our residents and businesses.

Be sure to check out the work of local artist, Andy Rocco, who is quickly blowing our minds with his unique and striking images that capture Charlotte so electrically and reminds us of all of the color our city brings to us!  While you’re at it, check out our “Hops and Vine” section for an inside look at the first few weeks of the 8.2.0 experience, brought to us by our friends at VBGB and the AvidXchange Music Factory.

We are so proud to be a part of this great city, and we thank you, truly, for all you do to add to the life and diversity of our area.  We always welcome your feedback and can’t wait to see what you have in store for us as the holiday season approaches.

Here’s to fellowship and community!  See you soon!
