We wanted a name that was a reflection of the both of us. So we decided on something with two words, like Phil & Karo. One word for Phil. One word for me. A few days of scribbling with markers on coloured paper and scouting for synonyms, we decided on Sunshowers & Bass.
Sunshowers = a natural phenomenon that occurs when it rains and shines at the same time. It’s a symbol for my love for the sunshine (and the rain, hello Vancouver), the outdoors, those natural moments captured while traveling, and the beauty of words.
Bass = Phil loves bass. More specifically, he loves music and a good beat he can dance to.
The name was the perfect fit: ephemeral and nostalgic mixed with something tangible and cool.
Phil is goofy…I’m a little more reserved.
Phil is laid-back…I always have a plan.
Despite this, Phil is more cautious…I like to be spontaneous.
Phil loves music and to dance…I love to travel and explore.
Phil loves movies…I prefer reading a book.
Phil is a videographer and photographer…I’m a writer and marketer.
Because of our little differences, we complement each other, like the beach and bums, music festivals and camping, or Nutella and Nutella.
