We had a fun visitor in the office last week – our creative director and art director met Ronen Verbit in New York and loved him so much they brought him down to our home office for a day! If you aren’t familiar with Ronen you should check out his videos – they are so clever and unique. Here’s one that we got a kick out of!

Even though summer isn’t technically over yet, Labor Day always seems to mark the end of it. I get terribly sad this time of year…summer is my favorite, and I never want it to end. I’m holding onto our endless summer concept and trying not to let it go just yet.

This dog cracks me up! She belongs to our creative design assistant and she is probably the tiniest dog I’ve ever seen – pictures really don’t do it justice. She’s a cutie and she loves to breakdance! Check it out :)
