Flower designing is like being part of a huge, colorful family. We might be all over the world, but we bump into each other a lot. It's like having a bunch of friends who get what you love. We help each other out and grow together. I really felt this when I visited Erko Feigl. He's this super famous flower designer from Germany. It was awesome!
Erko is an inspiring personality, speaking the language of flowers, which I try to share here with you. Erko and I share a story and share a journey in the flower industry. This journey has been fostered by a shared love for flowers and a desire to convey this passion to our colleagues in the industry.
Social media is like the glue that sticks us all together even more. We can check out each other's social posts and give props for a job well done. Working with Decofresh roses, I thought it would be neat to send some to Erko. And you know what? That simple thing started a whole bunch of other cool stuff!
Below I share with you Erko's thoughts on our relationship.
An Unyielding Love for Freshness
"Peter and I share a strong bond, a common thread that connects us - our love for freshness. This doesn't just pertain to the freshness of flowers, but also to the freshness of ideas. Innovation and creativity are as integral to our profession as the blooms we work with. We strive to operate as fairly and transparently as possible, ensuring that our love for our craft is both visible and contagious."
Erko is like a superhero of flowers. He's a gardener and a florist, so it's like he's got two hearts. One heart is all about loving plants and flowers - he just can't get enough of them. The other heart beats super-fast for making flowers look extra pretty, that's what floral design is. And you know what? It's this flower-designing thing that's really changed his life. It's what he does for a job and it makes him super happy.
From Floral Design to Floral Photography
Over time, Erko has found his field in floral photography, combining his eye for floral design with a keen sense of aesthetics and commitment. He has been able to channel his passion for floristry into capturing the ethereal beauty of flowers, creating stunning visual narratives that resonate with the emotions of the viewers.
"Working alongside Peter and the myFlorist team, I have been able to fully express my creativity and fervor for floristry. Working with roses from Decofresh is an exciting and enriching experience for me, constantly amazed by the innovative creations of gardeners and breeders."
Our Shared Journey in Floral Design
It's really cool when you see a friend doing something they love and they get better at it. That's how I feel about Erko. He loves flowers so much and works hard at it. When you look at his floral work, you can tell he's really good. It makes me want to try hard and be good at the things I like too.
Even though we might do different things, we're all like a big family because we love the same thing - flowers! They're the prettiest things in nature. Seeing Erko's work is super inspiring and it keeps reminding us that we're all in this together. We're like flowers, we grow and bloom together. That's what being in the flower world is all about.
