As soon as Downtown’s first issue had been released, the Downtown crew as well as Florian Dobner from FXX Cycles started packing their suitcases for a trip to Shanghai. Our destination? Experiencing, writing and producing stories. After a 36-hour day that started on Monday, counting the journey, arrival at the CO2-neutral URBN Hotel, location checks, and meetings with our contact men and the photographic agency Rimagine, we can finally start today.
Among other things, today’s schedule includes a shooting/meeting with the Senior Creative Director of one of the world’s largest advertising agencies – JWT. We will learn more about creativity, changes in the, by now, biggest sales market in the world, and of course about urban mobility. Stay tuned, stay excited.
