It has certainly been a year to remember.
Each one of us entered 2022 not knowing if it would be another year of Covid chaos, lockdowns, and social distancing. Not without its challenges and the loss of our admired Queen, thank goodness we’ve come out of the pandemic and as the festive season is upon us, we can gather together and enjoy the splendour of community this Christmas.
It’s also been a huge year of development as we celebrated Recognised’s 4th birthday and perhaps more than ever have seen the power of Recognition at work. In January, Anneka and I found ourselves on the beautiful coast of Cornwall where we reflected on the journey so far. Thousands of people have experienced recognition through the jewellery, and yet, we knew there is so much more!
And so we set out in 2022 to discover what that could look like - new and creative ways to bring the gift of recognition into our daily lives. We’ve never been so excited about what the future holds as we enter a new year and continue to branch out into new meaningful gifts for you to enjoy and give to loved ones.
This Christmas we launched the Recognised Mirrors and have been blown away by the response to them. If you like them, wait and see what’s coming in 2023!
2022 has also been a year where we’ve met with and spoken to tens of thousands of people through our infamous Recognition Popups and we were thrilled to bring these to Harvey Nichols for the first time this year as well as 19 other locations.
It was in September the team were able to celebrate all our hard work as we got suited and booted for the Retail Jewellery Awards. It was here that Recognised was awarded the Highly Commended Customer Event of the Year Award for our Symbols of Hope Pop-up Tour with John Lewis, something we will cherish and have as a marker for many years to come.
In November we saw The World of Recognised come to life. It is here we aim to bring you many more helpful articles in your journey of recognition and equip you with the tools and inspiration you need in order to live a more thoughtful life and help you recognise those around you. If you haven’t yet had a chance to do so, grab a cup of tea and explore the many articles already in there!
And so as one year comes to close and another awaits, we hope this finds you well and that whatever 2022 has looked like for you - the great moments and the sad ones, know that you matter, you are enough, and that you are recognised.
