It’s been a minute since our last blog post. Truth be told, it’s due to both busy schedules and a big ole dose of writer’s block. Which is odd since we have quite a lot going on at the moment, surely there must be plenty to write about!
We have a few new clients giving us some exciting projects to work on. Research and exploratories on everything from golf, to Buddhism, to handcrafted furniture. We are so excited for these projects. It’s rare to be be fortunate enough to have so many wonderful clients all at once. And it’s not just projects for our clients we’re busy with. We have so much more on our plate!
We are currently training two new designers, David Pijor and Patrick Hamilton. And while that is not always an easy task for a company, we are feeling really fortunate to be working with these two individuals. Talent, passion, and good humor can go a long way, and these guys are proof of that! At the same time, we are saying “good luck” not “goodbye” to a fantastic employee and friend (and Harris family member), Chris Harris as he begins the next chapter on his journey in web design, and photography, and wood working, social media, and whatever else he can get his hands on!
WORK is also in the process of moving to a new location as is its owner, Cabell Harris. It’s been 23 years on Monument Ave, where Cabell has had the shortest commute ever, merely descending a flight of stairs to get between home and office. Now the time has come for the family to downsize and for WORK to grow. You see our adventure does not stop there! WORK is not only moving but expanding. With the assistance of Larkin Garbee, founder and owner of 804RVA, WORK is creating another extension called WORK & FRIENDS. With our soon to be new location, we will begin our flagship office for a co-working space. Collaboration has always been one of our biggest strengths in this business, and we want to nurture that and others in the creative field. This has been and will continue to be a lengthy and intensive process but as with all of our work, collaborations and comradery bring success, and we are looking forward to this one.
So be on the lookout for more work from WORK, as well as events, and work spaces open with WORK and FRIENDS. While this change and growth has brought a bit of chaos, these growing pains are bringing very positive results!
