We like to do things a little backwards I guess. Ya, it's how we roll.
Ok. Let me back up. A long time ago in the year of 2005 AD, I went on an 2 month overseas adventure to learn about missions work through the school I attended (good ol' Northwestern College in St. Paul, MN.) We had a total group of twenty fabulous people, many of whom are still very close friends today.
We went to England and did awesome things together.
We went to Romania and did awesome things together.
We went to South Africa and did awesome things together.
We went to Mozambique and did awesome things together.
To say it was life changing is an understatement.
(Yes, I was going to actually list all of the things that we did in all those places but then I realized this blog post would become a novel and...let's just do that another time.)
Here we are.
This is Romania. At a castle!
One of my team mates was a little red head named Emily. We got to know each other (as only two people living in such close proximity over two months could) and we realized we had a lot in common. We liked art. We liked graphic design. We liked to laugh at each others jokes and talk to each other in British accents. We liked music. As we painted a house together in the blazing African heat she introduced me to Ben Folds who eventually became my absolute favorite musical artist in the whole widest of worlds. This girl has good taste.
Once back in the states, we would always say to each other, "Hey, let's start a graphic design business!" Then we would laugh, make some British accent jokes and continue on our merry way.
Then one day we said to each other, "Hey, let's start a graphic design business!" But this time we finally took each other seriously and did it. Soon after, The Skylark Studio was born.
Here are some nice pictures of us.
Here's the link to our shiny new website. Wanna take a looksie? And maybe there is someone you know who would like some design products? Perhaps a fresh new logo, brochure, or business card? Or maybe some classy wedding invitations? Perhaps an updated website or blog header?
Feel free to just send them right over.
