When it comes to making a good impression with your design work, presentation is everything and the time spent fussing over every single pixel is time well spent if it lands you a new client or audience. Portfolio Ready Mockups is a new online marketplace that focuses on crafting top-quality mockup collections that make it easy to present your finished designs in technological settings. An Azai Studio's side hustle started by our Design Director, this project strives to make designers’ lives a little easier by providing impeccably-crafted mockup designs that let your work shine. Our agency and this project are born from the pursuit of perfection. As designers ourselves, we're well aware of the agonizing tedium that stems from ensuring a flawless finished presentation.

What's the go-to project management tool for our agency? Monday.com. Given that there are 100s of examples to pick from when it comes to PM tools, for us, Monday.com is what we rely on most. It's quite customizable, so no matter what size your company is, this platform lets you plan, track, collaborate, and create automated reports to give you a proper bird's eye view on whats going on. We really love the automation that we can build into each project's board. It makes each project feel like a well-oiled machine. Given that we operate across continents, Monday has really has made our workflow quite seamless. A few others we recommend to give a try are Smartsheets, Basecamp, and Asana. I thought it might be helpful to add an example of how we set up a full corporate brand and digital revamp project. Naturally, things change along the way, but this is usually a good start!

Our team at Azai Studios has always been motivated and inspired by all different kinds of music. From our Spotify playlists to our artist features, we try sharing any and all CHoonss (tunes) whenever we can. Lately, it's been hard to keep up with all the raw talent coming out of the UAE region. For this week's note, we wanted to showcase the producer, writer, and audio engineer ROBN. His music and lyrics are definitely ones that will leave a mark on the hip-hop industry for years to come. Have a listen...

We always love seeing new concepts, especially when they're happening in our neck of the woods. Future Fair is the new exhibition for leading galleries to curate presentations together. Launching in May 2020, Future Fair stretches across a series of exhibition rooms designed within half of the 31,000 square foot Canoe Studios. The inaugural New York show will host a maximum of 36 galleries. The participating galleries will equally split 35 percent of the fair’s profits, which they can either take in cash, use to sponsor another gallery’s participation in the future or get a credit toward the fair next year.
