June // Issue 1

These are times that no one will forget for generations to come. Though they are very painful, frustrating, confusing, and often times scary – these are the conditions of change. It takes immense pressure [and time] to make a diamond.

While our fight-or-flight instinct is strongly dialed toward fight – we feel that navigating change is similar to surfing. There is a time to paddle-out and there is a time to surf, but there is also a time in-between to float and assess. That “float time” as we call it, is crucial. It’s a time to rest from the paddle-out, it’s a time to survey the incoming waves, and very often it’s a time stop and reflect on where you are and why you are out there to begin with.

So wherever these times may find you, please take a moment to float – assess where you’ve been, where you are going, and where you are right now.

 

Be safe and be kind.

As graphic designers one of the most cringe-worthy things you can say to us is ‘make it pop.’ It’s a simple phrase that’s sure to send us running for the hills but during this month of clear-headed thinking and thoughtful intentions, we’re taking a deep breath and embracing this color that really does, hate to say it, ‘pop.’ We see you, fuchsia, thanks for brightening our day.

Are you feeling it? Feeling the pressure to ‘make the most of this time’? Feeling the pressure to manage your sanity during a global pandemic? Feeling the pressure to navigate the unknown with an ounce of grace? You’re not alone, friend. The virus-that-shall-not-be-named is kicking our rears in more ways than one lately so we’re coming up with a game plan to take it all back in May. It’s a simple plan: INTENTION. We’re bringing mindfulness to everything we do, being present (even if we’ve been in lockdown with the same faces for months), seeking ways to grow, and connecting with others along the way. Who knows, our intentions could start a ripple effect of good and what a better time to find out than now.
