The Holstee Manifesto put words to much of how I consider my own life, and how I live. Naturally by extension of that, it is also infused in how we have built Carrot, our brand. We have the Manifesto proudly displayed centrally in our office, because it is a reminder that if you don’t love what you’re doing and the people you do it with as much as we do, something is wrong. Carrot Creative is an agency in practice, which produces excellent work that our staff is very proud of. However, the Carrot way of life is why we are (honored to have) the attraction of so many talented people. For me, and the people who choose to grow their talents and spend their time with us, it’s about DOING, about sharing the passion for doing, and enjoying every minute of it. If ever there was a poster to explain us, or poster children for a manifesto, this is it.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
