Poster Family Meet And Greet
In partnership with Zennie & Martin and the release of their fourth book Ren (Selv) Kærlighed Med Super Bowls, Poster Family has created the Bonde Collection, that capture some of the philosophies of self-love practiced by Zennie & Martin. The Bonde poster family is rooted in positive thoughts and affirmation tools that drive towards the goals of health and wellness. The design inspiration is an array of colors to evoke a sense of calm and serenity as their focus is to not only eat well with great recipes but to embrace the attitude of 360 degrees of healthy living.

A Q&A with Zennie & Martin Bonde Mogensen
Tell us about who you are and what’s at the core of your work?
We met 12 years ago and the book coming out now, Ren (Selv) Kærlighed Med Super Bowls, is the book we wanted to write back then but we started with the juice, and soup fasting book, along with books on detox. We did this because at our clinic we saw it was a game changer for our clients once they started to feel their own bodies and they get to see that their lives can be different. A life without headaches, joint and back pain for example. And sometimes you have to feel that before you are motivated to change your lifestyle. These lifestyle issue come up slowly, so slowly you don’t recognize them and it becomes normal to have headaches, and have pain in your body. It is quite common to go the local supermarket to get pain relief medication, so the system sends a signal that it is acceptable.
Why do you think people want to see their food in bowls. Do you think it’s a trend?
The recipes can be served on a plate as well but we think the bowl looks so beautiful. We think people are attracted to the bowl because there’s something that reminds us of our childhood. So that feeling of nourishment you feel with your eyes when you see a bowl overflowing with healthy ingredients. You just know you’re eating a bowlful of goodness.
How does your family inspire you?
Our young son motivates us every day to be our best, to lead by example because he is watching. The saying that kids don’t listen but they see what you do, inspires us to live, in and out of our home in a natural way. The word natural here means true to our philosophies of life so he can see that consistency of the life we want to live and wish for him.
Taking inspiration from your new book, Ren (Selv) Kærlighed Med Super Bowls, Poster Family created three posters so far and more to come. Can you give us some insight into the Bonde Poster Family Collection?
We believe the Bonde Poster Family looks beautiful on the wall because they tell a little about your beliefs, and what you want and expect of life.
“Vær tro mod din intuition.”
To “Be true to your intuition,” is most important because that is telling you everything. I have been struggling with that myself for many, many years. To trust what I think, or what I feel when my intuition is talking to me. So if I don’t really take care, my brain can start to take me away from what I’m feeling and find all kinds of excuses from what I’ve learnt instead of what my intuition is telling me. With all my life miracles, it has always been my intuition that has brought me there.
“Lyt til dit hjerte”
We love hearts. Our hearts are our inner GPS. Our heart is much more intelligent than our brain. To “Listen to your heart” means to us that you can’t figure out everything. You cannot sit down and figure out how to solve everything. Sometimes you have to feel. We need to trust what we feel. Taking a moment to write in the heart is a reminder to yourself that you know what feels right, even if you can’t explain exactly why it feels right.
“Husk hver dag”
We have a quote in the clinic that says, “if you can dream it, DO IT!” so we’ve always believed in the power of a poster. We have posters in our house, to remind ourselves. And even if we don’t stop and read it, it’s reminding us on a subconscious level. We’ve seen the power of how a simple reminder can be life-changing for so many people. They make big decisions in their lives, they are listening to their hearts…asking am I on the right track? Sometimes we become so busy forget we forget to see where we are. To “Remember every day” helps you to start to put yourself first.
At Poster Family, we make posters that are pleasing to look and create an interactive tool for people to excel in their lives and with their family. What gets you most excited about partnering with Poster Family?
We were drawn to Poster Family because we believe the mind works best when it’s open like a parachute.These posters help to capture our ideas. The Bonde Collection by Poster Family is telling a story about who we are and who we want to be. We’re excited to share our mission of self-love to the world.
