Hello There-11-11

 We believe that creatives shouldn’t be painted with one brush stroke. The whole, starving artist image is overrated and it needs to be nipped in the bud (or wherever it has settled now).

GETZ is a publication that aims to raise awareness about local creatives that do their own thing and excel.
