Congratulations to everyone for surviving 2020! We did it! We’re gearing up for 2021 by focusing on bringing healing and positive vibes into the new year. Normally, New Year’s resolutions are meant to inspire spurts of personal growth. But 2020 forced us all to examine ourselves more deeply than ever before. So this year, we’re focusing on small and achievable resolutions; Staying healthy, getting enough sleep, and appreciating our surroundings.

Our first newsletter of the year covers the theme of 3D Depth and Realism. Scroll down to get inspiration for the new year, learn more about what we’ve been up to, and see who’s new to our team!

If 2020 was a brand...

In this article, our Creative Director Rob Nolten personifies 2020 and wonders: if 2020 was a brand, what would it look, sound, and be like? A check it out button
