Sorry for the blog silence this past week. We’ve been hustling and bustling and meeting and greeting and starting and finishing and designing and editing and calling and answering and planning and coordinating and our heads are spinning with all these awesome projects we’re working on and…We wouldn’t have it any other way (yes I am aware that was a major run-on sentence). You see, for folks in the industry we’re in, this is the life. We’re dreamers, thinkers, doers, believers, planners, jugglers, magicians, artists, I-think-I-canners. Dare I say, we thrive in the chaos? We also really privileged to work with clients we love. Good people with good businesses and plans. To all the clients out there who trust us and let us help you build and create, please know how much we appreciate you.
Anyway – We’re working on some really cool projects, and we can’t wait to share them with the world. We’re also working on adding more of our work to the portfolio section on our website, so come back soon and check it out. We promise to be more diligent about blogging and sharing our news/work/industry insight with you. Until then – here’s some great reads we’ve found recently. And, yes, you guessed it, this is where the title of the blog post comes in…These reads do pair nicely with a cup of joe. So, without further adieu, grab your favorite mug and your reading glasses and take a five minute break for these good coffee break reads:
