We were pretty busy the last couple of months, so FTF was placed on the backburner for way too long. Luckily, two of our favorite designers and friends, Kati Forner and Sarah Lesher, made the trek out to our studio this week. We talked inspiration and goals while sharing banana bread and loads of coffee. Hope you enjoy!
This month we were lucky enough to have two awesome designing women join us for First Thing Fridays! Jessica Comingore of Marbury Co. and Emily Belmont, a freelance designer based out of Long Beach, shared some classes and crafts that they enjoy and also spoke to us about their design process. Take a look!
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.
