  • Advice For Future Employees

    An open letter to my future employees. We’ve had a number of employees at You&Me. Each one has left their mark on us and the company. And this is how it should be. I’d like to believe that as much as an employee has learnt from us during their time here, we have learnt just…

  • I’m Still Learning

    Being the child of a teacher has deeply instilled the value of knowledge in me for as long as I can remember. My reading books in my spare time was encouraged, and going to varsity after high school was a given. I still remember our weekly trips to the library, and look back on those…

  • Keeping Up With The Podcasts

    Owning and running a creative business has its perks. Being surrounded by like-minded creative people is what makes me get up in the morning. Being able to have a conversation with someone that can articulate their view on the world is a breath of fresh air, even if their view on the world seems to…

  • Running Your Own Business Is Not For Sissies

    Life has taught me many lessons throughout my 28 years on this Earth. People close to me have taught me different things over those years too, but I have truly learnt the most important lessons from running my own company. Lessons not only about “how not to be a shitty business woman”, but important lessons…

  • Mzwakhe Ndlovu on “The Chain of Command”

    Yup, we’ve added another fine specimen to the team at You&Me. As per usual we’ve asked him to answer a few questions about his first two weeks in the office, what he thinks about us and what he loves – and because it’s his job to do what we tell him to do, here it…

  • April Fools’ Day – As Told by the Internet

    When April Fools’ rolls around, our office becomes a battlefield. But then again, we never did need an excuse to prank our unfortunate male counterparts in the office. Shame. Trust no one. However, when that fateful day comes around, everyone is on high alert. Especially on the web and social media. We’ve collected some of…

  • Lorian Clare on “The Pecking Order”

    Meet our shiny, happy Intern Lorian Clare! She’s been with us for two weeks now, but because interns can be unpredictable and because she’s a bit of a shady character, we decided that we should wait two weeks before introducing her as a part of the team – just in case she ended up being…

  • Sock it to the system

    There’s an unspoken code that lurks in the world of men’s fashion, waiting to attach itself to anyone slightly unsure about colour coordination or the appropriate length for one’s pants. Simply put, the code translates “well-dressed” into “beige-slacks-and-matching-socks” – a wonderfully safe space for the male mind, and a terribly tedious one too. Enter Nic…

  • Out with the Old, In with the New – 5 bad advertising habits we need to quit this year.

    Hey, we get it – 2014 was a long year. We all let a few things slide. (Our gym memberships, for example). But it’s a new season! A season for change and growth and all those lovely-sounding things! And we’re talking about a whole lot more than signing up for a spinning class. We’re talking…

  • So, it’s January again?

    It’s difficult to believe that we’re back here again – we’re both happy and sad to see your face, January. Last year was one for the books! We learned many things, taught a few lessons, fell and got back up again – and we wouldn’t change a thing about it. Through it all we had great clients…
