For this month's First Thing Friday we invited the incredible NYC-based designer + letterer Nick Misani. Nick was in town doing a couple Art Deco lettering workshops with AIGA LA and was kind enough to share a few of his favorite design mementos with our team.
Today we invited Ron and Matt from Italic Studio over for a little show-and-tell and long-overdue catch up with an emphasis on design studio love/war stories. It's comforting to know we share near-identical experiences of clients gone this way, clients gone that way, and in some (very rare) cases, clients gone bye-bye. Hopefully, we will make good on the idea of collaborating on a project together very soon.
Welcome to the debut of the editorializaton of a tradition we've had for years here at LK. It's basically an occasional Friday morning during which we take a break, do a little show-and-tell of things that interest, provoke or inspire us, and eat some really unhealthy morning treats.
Stay tuned, because in the coming issues of FTF we'll be inviting some special guests to sit in and share some of their favorite things.
