Hey guys, it's Rich. We've had a busy week around the studio. We're working on some fun new projects for our clients, and have been reading even more design articles than normal this week (so get ready). It seems like every time a new phone comes out we spend more time reading and dreaming about new design projects (like designing apps for the Apple Watch!).
We'll be spending a chill weekend here in Brooklyn, hope you have a great weekend!
