On a mission to slow people down and make them smile, you’ll be pleased to meet Daniela and Marcel of Pleased to Meet. This creative power couple met in 1999, while working for design agencies in New York before starting their own. A few years after meeting, they created their first exclusive holiday card collection as a side project, and they’ve published a card collection every year since. Now based in Munich, they’re designing paper and ceramic lifestyle pieces sure to spread all the joy. The team have fully committed to designing and distributing their own products, while also inspiring their followers and clients to live a happier, slower lifestyle along the way.

Inspired by Daniela and Marcel’s quirky and creative lifestyle, we asked them to share how they make the most of food, creativity and inspiration in Munich …
