Dry Patch

Working on the Catalyst team means a lot of variety in terms of clients, and usually when you’re given a new project you also find yourself learning about a completely new sector. However, when I met Chris Gomez aka Dry Patch in April, I felt at home. We were sitting in Grind in Covent Garden sipping artisan coffee and discussing commuting on two wheels. I left our first meeting buzzing because Chris’s product was targeted to a group of people I had a lot in common with, and hence my new project was to become a mixture of work and fun. ​The name Dry Patch raises a lot of questions and eyebrows, but it is exactly what it stands for—nothing less, nothing more. Dry Patch is a brand for the cool

Mastering the World of Work

An unusual start with the Catalyst Team

I’m quite sure that I had a rather unusual first week as part of the Catalyst team at SInC. My first day was almost fully devoted to the team moving office within the building. I heard stories from the ‘old office’ during this process, but all I saw was how it was taken apart, hearing cries as paint was peeled off the wall, laptop chargers mysteriously disappeared temporarily and a conundrum was had over mismatching wireless mice and keyboards. Before I knew it, the working day had ended and I was cycling home under the commonly absent British sun. ​ The following day the office was fully set up and I was provided with a laptop, email account and everything else that I would need. I was re
