Bearded Studio says Take a Break
Great advice from the Pittsburgh crew. I used to work at an agency where we’d play Quake 3 over breaks. I think it definitely helped with productivity.

In other news…
The Moveable Type Truck is coming to town today and I’m super excited about it. The Roanoke Ad2 group asked if Kyle Durrie, a letterpress printer from Portland, Oregon and the proprietor of  Power and Light Press would stop by on her way across the U.S. of A. She complied, we cheered, and can’t wait to see this wonderful woman and her amazing letterpress on wheels. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post about Kyle and her bitchin’ truck.
