Hello Los Angeles! If you haven’t yet, spend some time with us on the first Tuesday of every month at our #TDKTuesdays. It’s a sweet opportunity to meet future friends or even collaborators. A wonderful new interview is now live on the site. We speak to LA-based typographer and designer, Andrew Byrom, who reminds us to, “Be a happy designer. Find the joy in it. Start over whenever you have a better idea – no matter how late in the process it comes to you. The design process needn’t be ‘fun’. The design process is hell.” If you haven’t heard of him before, you’re in for a nice read.
