This week has been quite glorious for us New Yorkers — with the combination of the leaves turning colors and summer-like weather, we are just taking it all in and enjoying it while it lasts. Winter is never far! We’re busy in the studio with a couple new website projects, and there’s a super exciting logo and identity project we’re working on that we can’t wait to announce. We added a new case study to our online portfolio, and had some fun developing a set of icons for a non-profit mailer we’re developing. Stay tuned for more!

Around The Neighborhood
We’ve been keeping our eye on this Bloody Mary Festival happening Saturday in Astoria’s Melrose Ballroom, featuring three hours of unlimited tasty tomato drinks from all over NYC. This beloved morning cocktail will be paired with four different types of oysters from around the country, along with a bagel bar to soak up all that booze. If an epic boozy brunch isn’t on the agenda for your weekend, it’s the perfect time of year to get outside and take in the fall foliage. We all know NYC has some of the best public parks, but one of our favorite places (we still consider it one of the city’s best-kept secrets) to bask in the beauty of autumn is Green-Wood Cemetery. Unfortunately this spooky twilight tour is sold out on Saturday, but be sure check back for added events!
