PICK & MIX... more lockdown temptations from @yarravalleychocolaterie as they continue to bring their sweet destination to chocolate lovers everywhere via a decadent e-store. This is the Ultimate Chocolate Box — you pick and mix any combo of their couverture choc coated treats you desire online, they hand pack and then ship it to your door. Because chocolate and lockdown were made for each other, are we right? #Qclient #clickforvic #supporthospo #yarravalleychocolaterie #chocolatelover ...

LOBBY LOVE... oh that feeling when you know you’ve arrived somewhere special. One of Q’s favourite lobbies in one of our favourite cities — designed by @jaimehayon for Madrid’s @barcelotorredemadrid ...

COLOUR POP! A bright perspective from above as regional Victoria’s restrictions ease slightly and our state begins to slowly re-open. This candy coloured capture via @Australia is at #littledessertnationalpark and the unmissable natural phenomenon of the #DimboolaPinkLake that only appears when there’s enough water, crystallised salt and microscopic algae...

TELEPORT US TO... atop an elephant to check in to a private villa perched on Taprobane Island, Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka Tourism was one of Q’s foundation clients — we managed a PR program to put the destination on the luxe jet setters map post-Tsunami (remember that devastating event?) The two year long ‘Bounceback’ campaign involved strategic media engagement, media famils, ambassador appointments, celebrity visits, consumer promotions, brand partnerships and more to help generate record visitation numbers from the Australian market. Insights we’re looking forward to drawing on for current projects in the COVID era...
