A few weeks ago, we decided to take a quick break from our screens to bond over something other than great design. We all love to eat and cook, so we easily agreed on taking a Thai cooking class at Sur La Table.Read More›
It’s tempting to think that having business cards isn’t important anymore. After all, everything we do is online or on our phones (we can just exchange email addresses, right?).

Like any other office environment, every once in awhile we need to step away from our computers, get out from behind our desks and bond over some fun. This sparked us thinking about ways we could disconnect from our screens and grow our comradery.
