It may look a little strange, but our jigsaw rig Kevin put together has really been a huge help today. Hiba made it through nearly 70 letters — and no wrist pain!
Some final touches like this shim helped us to get it fine-tuned earlier today.
We had the cutting speed fairly high, and initially the jigsaw wasn’t quite locked down enough, so our cuts weren’t as straight as we would have liked.
However, once we got it all locked down, Hiba started speeding through the letters, which is completely necessary. We have about 400 letters to cut.
But, before that, Lucy came by to starting planning a project / event with Hiba and get up to speed with how things have been moving along here at CIVIC SPACE.
Lucy did a kick ass job with our press releases late last month and we’re really happy she’s back! This is how she is currently keeping track of things.
It was a full house today, Rosina and Sara came by and double-teamed some design work that needs to get done ASAP in preparation for our launch next Thursday!
We’re still pulling from these notes that we took during a meeting a couple weeks ago as we start to assemble a basic schedule design.
Hiba made this note.
I spent the afternoon working on some answers for an interview.
Hiba flipped back to cutting more letters.
The library thus far.
Here’s a ribbon from a gift from DodoLab. Reminds me how much I love that gold printing / plating (what is it really called?) reminds me of track and field ribbons.

Rosina brought a polaroid camera and we instagramed old school.
Also, Rosina started to work with our new stamp as she finessed the design of our library card.
I took a break and added some bunting to the construction zone in front of our place.
I also painted the jigsaw blades that we had in waiting with more nail polish.
The remaining letters for the day.

Tomorrow: some meetings, some guest cutters, and a lot more fun. We’re here between 11am and 4pm, if you’re in the hood.
