I swear I am still trying to come up with New Year’s Resolutions. This first quarter has FLOWN. Lots happening though—here’s what we’ve been up to:
So much of what drives us is a very basic love for what we do. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to use our skills and experience for meaningful work. We are gearing up to hire a couple more team members in the coming months and are continually grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with fantastic clients on interesting projects.
We recently published the third issue of the Bittersweet zine, launched a new site for it, moved into new studio space, hosted a screenprinting workshop and two film screenings, sponsored a community conference on urban gardening, and completed a number of projects for clients.
Few projects in the works:
- We’re very excited to soon launch a site for Sudan Sunrise, a non-profit partnering with Sudanese to build schools in the spirit of reconciliation
- Designing a booklet for Malaria No More’s Champion’s Breakfast
- Designing/developing a site for The Fordham Institute’s reports on the state of state educational standards
- Branding and designing/developing a site for the Association of American Publishers
- Branding, designing books, producing a short-film, and designing/developing a site for the American Enterprise Institute
We’re excited to participate as a vendor (Bittersweet Goods) in the Capital Funk Hip-Hop show on April 16th (GWU Lisner Auditorium, 12-9pm), the Open Studios for our building (52 O St Artist Studios, NW) May 7-8, and DreamYear weekend with Ben Arment June 3-5 at Ebenezers in DC.
Will leave you with this stellar quite by Frederick Buechner, one of my favorite writers, “We have only one life, and the choice of how we are going to live it must be our own choice, not one we let the world make for us.”
