As you may know, we’ve been sharing our London HQ with the cool guys from High Spirit. Josh & John launched their (smartly patented) anti-theft backpack back in 2013. Surprised by the prevalence of pick-pocketing and the subsequent jar to those free spirit feels during a trip to NYC, the guys decided something had to be done. Upon returning home, the sibling duo designed a bag with a sneaky reverse zip enabling travellers to feel secure whilst on the move. Nice one boys!

Aside from sharing laughs – and the studio biscuit tin – we’re keen to share the magic of collaborative working with High Spirit. The entrepreneurial journey is no easy feat and your input could provide pivotal guidance for Josh & John. Ultimately, we want to help them grow a truly kickass brand and we need you to join us.

1. We’re interested to explore the threat of crime in different cities around the world.

You’re in? Great! We’re inviting you to evaluate and share answers to the questions below.

Please tell us which city you live in and the area. Tell us about specific types of crime that you feel most threatened by in your local area. Have you noticed any crime ‘trends’ whilst on the move in your city? Are there any particular times whilst on the move that you’re more anxious about crime than others?

2. We want to know what’s in your bag!

Please take a photograph of your bag and its contents. We’d like you to make a list of all the items in your bag and tell us how you’d feel if you lost these items. Please create two ranked lists of your items; one for financial loss and a second for emotional loss.

3. Finally, if you have a skill, knowledge or network that could assist High Spirit in their journey, please get in touch. We’d love to connect you and make things happen!

Email your answers and photographs to rebecca.dowell@senseworldwide.com. If you have any questions about this project feel free to get in touch.

A quick note; the more feedback we get the richer insight we can share with the High Spirit team. So please, take a few moments out of your busy day to help fellow Sensers!
