"Give me three words, and I'll write it into a poem."
Our founder and resident poet, Adam, typewrites you a custom poem on a vintage Corona, in an envelope adorned with a wax seal. It is a perfect gift for yourself or someone you cherish.
A collection of his poems inspired by strangers (titled Finders & Keepers) was published and is available in our online store & bookstores across Singapore.
Adam has been invited to typewrite customised poems at weddings, festivals and branding activations & events such as Formula One, Fresh Beauty, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz and Club Monaco. Want him at an upcoming event? Get in touch!
