We’ll try and keep things brief because, you know, you guys are busy looking out of other people’s windows, waiting for Bebo to relaunch or checking the price of $GME.

This month we delve further into the world of #influence - how it’s changing, what this now means, and who is doing it well. We’re hosting a free briefing of our INFLUENCE report on 17th February which covers all these points and more. If you can’t make it, make sure you add your details here to get a copy of the final report. You’ll also see we’ve added a new #collaboration section with opportunities for Protein Members to collaborate on projects together 🙌

In other news, we’ve been planning where we should take the Protein Community next, so if you can spare 3 mins, we’d really appreciate your thoughts in this Typeform. As always, a big thank you to everyone who responded to our open call and if you want to see your project or event featured next month, sign-up to join Protein now:


Following the success of the Honey Dijion link last month, we thought we’d add a soundtrack to go with each Supplement. First up is Kikelomo who delivers a set of belters, channeling some “UK vibes alongside some serious Chicago, New York and Jersey Club heat”. Now based in Berlin, Kikelomo uses her platform to promote diversity and inclusion for marginalised communities in the Berlin club culture and beyond. Enjoy.

Protein is a place where people and ideas grow 🌱  We do this through our global community, agency, and studio space. We believe we’ve all got a responsibility to think and act bigger than ourselves and that "good growth" can only be achieved by balancing progress, profit, and purpose.

Yes, we really have published 676 issues of this newsletter. The first Protein Supplement was sent on 17th September 1997 to 14 people and (other than a few breaks over the years) has always aimed to distill what’s happening at the intersection of culture and technology into a concise and accessible digest. If you’re interested in digging into the (incomplete) archive, you can here.

You can also find us on Insta, Twitter, The Dots, Telegram, iTunes, and Linkedin. We always like to hear from you and how we can improve what we do, so if you want to get in touch about anything, please use this form.
