We’ve spent the last couple of weeks settling into our new headquarters, working on applications and ideas for the fall and winter. We’ve also cleared our consultancy out of the downtown space, seeing as Visual Fringe is over and it was high on the to-do list. Having a dedicated space has been incredible so far, and all we’ve done is basically set up some tables and go over some paperwork.
Needless to say that come September, with more people back in town and our schedules better aligned. our new space is going to be even more amazing.
So, as most of what we’ve been doing is somewhat scattered and in numerous Word and Excel documents and in the mail and on someone else’s desk, here’s a brief overview of our activities as of late.
The LED sign back in the office. Pulling it out of storage and momentarily placing it on the desk, we need to find some wall space or some window ledge space for its more permanent home.

The remainder of August may be a little more irregular than the rest of summer, in terms of actually finding time to get things in place for September. However, we’re planning a lot of things for the fall with enough advanced warning that hopefully we can get together a functioning schedule for activities and Office Hours.
