Yesterday, Kristen Coogan, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Boston University brought her Information Design class in for a tour of our office and some Q&A. After braving the cold and long voting lines I made it in to greet them at 10:00. Ben and I gave them a brief overview of the company and showed them some of our print work up on the 3rd floor.
Fathom offices thankfully emerged unscathed from last night's super storm, and those regions that weathered the worst are in our thoughts today. In the event that Sandy came farther north, we took precautions over the weekend to make sure our most valuable assets were taken care of:
Ever since the spectacle that was the 2012 Summer Olympic opening ceremony, I’ve had an image of Sir David Beckham — captaining a jet boat down the river Thames delivering the Olympic torch while fireworks explode upon his arrival — as my desktop wallpaper. His face staring at me has been my daily dose of reality. It has challenged me to be a better person and shoot for excellence each and every day. I realize I can’t keep this inspiration all to myself, I need to share this majesty with the world, so you too can achieve more.
The good news is that our first run of All Streets posters got a ton of love this summer. The less good news is that we sold out of them, so James and Terrence ventured down to Connecticut yesterday to do press checks on the second run.
