It's Monday morning, 10 0'clock. My computer is ringing- from another room I ask my daughter to answer it and I hear a familiar voice, it's Jill calling from the U.K. saying to my four kids who are now crowded around my computer "hello! Are you all enjoying your holiday?" They giggle.. a holiday? Here we just call it a summer break. We're in the United States, North Carolina to be exact. I have pet chickens. Jill has a blooming English garden. Our lives are certainly a bit different but we are connected by our desire to succeed at what we do; design. I shoo the kids out of my office and sit down with my coffee, Jill returns to the screen with her cup of tea and so our Monday morning (afternoon for Jill) meeting begins. We've been doing this for a few months now and it's become a routine as we check items off our to-do list, critique each others works in progress discuss trends or other related items and chat about life in Jill's part of the world and life in mine. We're an ocean apart but we've become a team set for an adventure, this is our story as we embark on a year long journey to the PrintSource tradeshow in August of 2018 in New York City and whatever comes next.
If you are here reading this post, please continue to join us as we share what we are doing, what we are learning and bits of our lives.
... And so, the adventure begins.
