I Hate Carving Pumpkins

Today we signed up for GUTS, an annual pumpkin carving competition that unifies our creative community in support of Make-A-Wish and the kids who fight the real fight everyday.

Lunar Lunches

We talk about everything from our families to the weekend activities – we think it is important that we all connect outside of our project lists and deadlines and what better way to commune than over some good ol’ home cookin’? Not to mention we all love to cook. Can you tell our designer brains stay turned on with our plate presentations?

We had a grasp on the basics but as we looked at this bundle of potential energy we couldn’t help but feel simultaneously excited and terrified. Beginnings are like that, intimidating by the sheer fact of all the possibilities that could unfold. The creative process is no different. So how do you overcome the daunting task of starting? We’ve found the secrets to success maybe aren’t so secret.
