Girl Not Included :: Volume 01

By November 3, 2013Girl Not Included

Girl Not Included is a new category we’re starting at Megadeluxe. Featuring women who have a true love of speed, sport and design. “Girl power – Dad!” as my seven-year-old daughter tells me.
 
Update: The response to this post has been unbelievable. It definitely hit a live wire. We’ve been getting some requests about turning this into a book. (A Kickstarter campaign perhaps?) Would love to hear you thoughts. Drop me a line in the comments section (or here) if you think this might be something you’d like to see us produce, or would like to be involved in somehow.

“I’m attracted to underwater photography in the ocean because of the lack control I have in such a massive body of water…It’s somewhere where you have to be completely switched on and be able to adapt to anything it throws at you.”

Girl Not Included :: Volume 01

Girl Not Included was built for my seven-year-old daughter. She’s always been somewhat ho-hum about Megadeluxe and its abundance of “guy stuff.” I knew I had something going when I showed it to her the first time. A huge smile came over her face – it was priceless. Girl included.”

    This feature is fantastic. Keep it up! And PLEASE make it into a book, I’d love to help.

    I tried to use your form but it says it’s “not accepting” any longer. In any case I wanted to submit a lady for you to check out (disclaimer, she is my wife, so I’m biased). http://www.theathleticcommunity.com/theathleticcommunity/2013/11/4/new-kit-day Here are some photos, but her name is Julie Krasniak and she’s been racing bicycles professionally for about 10 years now – Road, Mountain, Cyclocross, whatever. She basically just likes to shred on a bicycle.

    Thanks!
