We can't believe it's already been a WHOLE year since we debut our work at the NYIGF last year...the year went by super fast and we don't really remember what really happened...but all I can say is that this whole experience of having our own studio so far has been more than amazing, and it's been reassuring for us that we can actually make it work!
...and in finding the need to give ourselves a little pat on our backs, we decided to celebrate a little by getting a cake!
Man...how I love that I can write off things like this as an business expense!
We even used the cake to shoot along with our new items that we'll be bring to the NYIGF this August: New pastel Superior server colors, Vintage Superior cake servers, ceramic Salt & Pepper Pawz, and Terracotta Piggy banks!
So yeah...It's been a crazy year where it felt like so much has happened yet I can barely remember it all. Does that make sense?....and is that normal?
I think perhaps it's the fact that we're still learning the art of juggling everything and learning how to be our own bosses...and do everything else...to be a designer, product developer, maker, project manager, blogger, photographer, sales rep, accountant, PR, creative director, packer, shipper, and the person to wash dishes, etc.
Less assure you that i'm NOT trying to brag....seriously...
Nonetheless, we're still totally psyched for this August NYIGF where 8 of us design studios under JOIN will be next to other talented peeps from American Design Club and “A+: The Young Designers’ Platform.” We'll all going to join forces and showcase our work outside the entrance to Accent on Design in the lobby area.
Yes...nothing like partying in the lobby at the Javits Convention Center!! Woot woot!
Check out what everyone gots to bring!
