Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Tony Logan and I’m a Creative Consultant and Fashion Journalist. My passion is creating marketing strategies for campaigns, product launches and promotional events for clients and companies. And I’m also a fashion journalist for The Stndrd magazine which is a men’s lifestyle magazine and I contribute to men’s fashion sites like Man of Many and Vouchmag.
What forms of media have influenced you the most?
I’m always influenced through books, art, documentaries and informative podcast stations. Right now I’m currently reading The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell that I highly recommend and I’m always listening to Nick Oaken “Shoptalk Radio” podcast episodes which is a great source for any entrepreneur, artists or creative who’s trying to find their way and purpose in the creative world. What I enjoy about ShopTalk is how Nick highlights creatives in their industry and really dives deep and dissects each moment of that creative’s life leading up to their success. And the guests are very open and honest about their success and failures giving the listeners a better understanding of the industry while inspiring you at the same time. Great way to start your morning.
What hardware / software do you use?
For the most part I usually just use my Macbook Air for my writing assignments and blogging entries but since I’m always back and fourth between New York and Baltimore I usually just take my iPad Air for the work trips. Besides my computer and tablet I’m always using my Passion Planner which has been a life saver when it comes to me keeping my appointments, writing my to-do list for the day and my monthly outlook.
What would be your dream creative setup?
That’s a great question. My ideal creative setting would be a office with a huge wooden worktable where I can have my coffee, computer, books and plants stored on while still having space for other things. I’m a messy/organized worker so the more space I can move around and work on the better for me. Besides my work space I have to have cool jazz playing in the background because it helps create the creative mood and finally having a huge window overlooking the city. I think being in the city alone helps inspire me but overlooking it every morning would just remind me how important it is to stay on the grind.
