SHOW  LOVE

SOCIAL CONTENT FOR LOVABLE COMPANIES

Philosophy

Whether it be through documentary film shorts, photography, text, or internal listening sessions, we tell authentic stories. We don’t use scripts and we don’t make stuff up. We do this by choosing to only work for a certain kind of business or project. One that displays one or more of the following traits that we think make a great and honest story for our times:

  • Sustainable: business models that work now, will work in the future, that sustain life on this planet, that make sense for a new more conscientious era
  • Innovative
  • Soulful
  • Community-minded
  • Whimsical
  • Aesthetically Sublime
  • Solves a problem
  • Ethical (always)

We love design, food, farming, agriculture, urban planning, technology, social enterprise, education, fine craftsmanship, thoughtful retail, breakthrough healthcare, medicine, planes, trains, automobiles, and more.

PETER CROSBY
Filmmaker, Editor

With an uncanny sense of direction and a photographic memory of places, Peter grew up among the moors and dales of North Yorkshire, England, spending his twenties and early thirties traveling through Australia and Canada, living for a year or more in London, Zurich, Moscow, Paris, and Barcelona.

Peter honed his film skills at the London Film Academy. He worked as an architectural and landscape photographer, teacher, and advertising location scout before co-founding Show Love in 2010 in Barcelona inspired by the artisanal businesses in the Born neighborhood where they lived.

In 2011, Chauncey and Peter moved their business to the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn where they now live with their twin baby girls Bay and Sky, and their dog Nijinsky.

CHAUNCEY ZALKIN

She was a Webby-nominated pre-blog era blogger on women and design, wrote for magazines, was lauded for her entrepreneurship in The Daily News after 9/11, worked on brands globally, wrote a novel, and in 2010 hosted 10 award-winning female industrial designers and artists from 6 countries, 3 continents at the London Design Festival.

Living most of her adult life in New York, apart from a stint at ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Miami, she went on to spend 2007 through 2011 living in Paris, Biarritz, and then Barcelona where she and Peter combined their talents to start Show Love focusing on artisans and makers.
