It’s half past August and our thoughts have turned to bringing summer to a memorable close and getting the kids back to school. Meanwhile we’re back at work sending you our best ideas.
The dog days of summer are here and we hope you’re keeping cool, calm and collected. This week’s food for thought is a buffet featuring a wide variety of treats and gourmet fare that will satisfy your hunger for knowledge and inspiration.
You’re invited to the 10th annual festival of all things letterpress. While a decade of Wayzgoose fun is definitely something worth celebrating, so is the School of Visual Concepts’ 40th birthday. Since 1971, SVC has been helping people learn the art and craft of design, copywriting, and for the last ten years, letterpress printing. So come join in and have a grand old time that’s been 40 years in the making. This is a free and family-friendly event.
The tail end of July makes us realize that we’ve already burned through half of summer. That means everyone who has been procrastinating on certain project better get moving! Meanwhile, we fill your mind with inspiration and your heart with joy thanks to tons of freebies and sage advice.
Here in So Cal, we’re happy to report that we survived “Carmageddon.” The roads were open for us to get back to the office in plenty of time to provide you with the next fresh batch of marketing expertise and design inspiration.
This week started with a bang! Literally. We hope you remembered your ear plugs and had an enjoyable 4th as you celebrated our country’s 235th year of Independence! As the smoke clears we’ll dive into some of the design inspiration that keep you fresh and sassy!
