Curalate marketing director Brendan Lowry is lowkey Instagram famous

You know you're Instagram famous when a clothing brand asks you to model some of their shirts.

When he’s not getting the message out about Curalate, Brendan Lowry runs the uber popular Peopledelphia Instagram account (nearly 47,000 followers).

I love sharing awesome, city-changing projects with all of you.. A big plan is underway to turn Philadelphia’s abandoned Viaduct Rail Park (@therailpark) into a three-mile linear park and recreation path to connect neighborhoods and cultivate arts/entertainment/culture. We need your help, though! This Thursday, the Bacon Brothers, Philadelphia natives Michael and Kevin Bacon (yeah, he does more than act), will play a special benefit concert to support the construction of Phase I of the Viaduct Rail Park at @UnionTransfer. Click the link in my bio to purchase a ticket, support the cause, and enjoy an awesome night of music with other Philadelphians. ?: @dacrilikethedrink (amazing shot!) — #VisitPhilly #WhyILovePhilly #DiscoverPHL #SavePhilly #ViaductPark #RailParkPhilly #PhillyLoveNotes #PhillySupportPhilly

It’s a Humans of New York-esque project that drew the attention of Kit and Ace, a luxury Canadian clothing brand that came to Philadelphia — the former Impact Hub, to be exact — to interview him. (And to shoot some pretty photos of Lowry in their cashmere-lined shirt. Dang.)

From the interview:

I started this account because I was struggling to meet creative people in Philadelphia that I wanted to connect with — I wasn’t looking in the right places. With Peopledelphia I can reach out to anybody in the city to meet up and no one has ever said no.
