Our first Field Trip Show in NYC!
Our First Field Trip!
Hey everyone! Well after many months of video calls, hundreds of emails and lots of new artwork creating, we hosted our first Field Trip show in New York two weeks ago. Deciding to put on our own pattern & illustration event as opposed to the trade show we usually do was a major decision for us but it has turned out to be a decision that we haven't second-guessed even for a minute! We are seriously honored to be involved with this insanely talented group of artists, not to mention, lucky to be able to call them all friends now!
As for the event, It's so amazing to see our clients face to face and get to meet potential new partners in person. We live in a digital world and it's convenient to communicate through emails and calls, but there's nothing quite like having a meeting in person!
The event space was filled with huge windows, making it super light. It set the tone perfectly! We had great music, cocktails (French 75 anyone?) and yummy hors d'ouvres. If you made it to the show, sincere thanks for coming to see all of us! We sure hope you had a great time! If you missed it...here's a little peek into the fun!
All of us together.
