it’s not everyday we get a call from fellow designers in our neighborhood (sausalito) suggesting a get-together. we’re always so busy in our wee studios, feverishly working to save the world through good design. the notion of crawling out into the daylight to talk about- design, seemed so…civilized. or at the very least, fun!
