We had the good fortune of connecting with KRYSTOPHER FAKIR and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi KRYSTOPHER, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When K.F.E started with its journey, the process that took me into the inspirational steps were understanding my purpose for starting the company. The year was 2016, I just finished obtaining my Masters. I wanted to apply everything I had learned from all my experience into a structure, platform, movement that made an impact into all cultured communities. Especially “Pan African, African American and Black”. I knew what my talents and strengths were in starting this concept. I applied the visual talents with the marketing ability and knew conceptually, I could not only share that knowledge also profit artistically off of it! That is truly how Krys Fakir Everywhere Limited Liability Company, came to be.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Our work is a passionate variation of art. We apply our aesthetics, technical assets, qualities and then convey them in our own way. Whilst, applying those same qualities to our clients projects, missions, marketing strategies and more… KFE is an abbreviation of Krys Fakir Everywhere LLC (Limited Liability Company). Founded for the purpose of cultivating artists, creators, students, entrepreneurs and others, into the ideals that we KNOW our worth, and we feel that too. It was not the easiest road, certainly a lot of tough times that some would pause from. Best way that we have overcome the rough moments were, channel the energy that surrounds your mind into a concept that feels freeing, allowing the subconscious directions of goals, ideals, desires to place hold. We, as a collective, need to portray the depths of these beliefs regarding our skills/all sense of that direction to the world…whom takes it lightly and ignorantly appraise it as an unworthy thing. We’re truly excited to start this message by creating projects on the caliber status such as a Short Film for a collegiate institution. Multiple published projects with “Brands, Professional Athletes, and powerful Artist.” Lastly, we have attended a few school career days, the most important aspect of our message. Educating! Providing answers, outlets, directions, foundations, inspirations to young POWERFUL minds. Honestly, that is what has set us apart from others for the past 5 years. Never losing site of the message with-in our mission.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I actually had my best friend, also my assistant visit the current state we are licensed in. The places I took him were not the traditional tourist sites. No sir, it was things that connected the people to the city. Out here for 4 days, I believe, we visited Coati, an interesting establishment that encompasses…bars, restaurants, and art exhibits/collections displayed all over the top floor. Denver specifically the 16th mall district.. Old Colorado, a palatable establishment for beautiful captures. We basically had our cameras out the entire time, “vibing” to music, while driving to locations we could paint with our cameras. In a brief itinerary, it started with going to grab food at a local restaurant that was of cultured cuisine (i.e Luchels), then to sites that were constructively beautiful like manitou outlook, Cheyenne Mountain, furthering into the up-incoming days, being able to venture to Downtown Denver seeing this unique outdoor mall. Then after going to trending food locations marketed by TikTok account @denverfoodscene, there are many things to do with-in a week other than going Hiking.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
MI FAMILIA!!! They have truly invested energy and their time into our growth! We never will forget nor take that for granted!
