we're speaking at alt!

yes, that's right, we're are honored to be speaking at the one and only Altitude Design Summit 2013 in Salt Lake City!!! We had the complete pleasure of attending this inspiring (some even say life-changing) event last year (see our recap here) and came away filled with endless brand new information and feeling completely creatively inspired!! It's truly a one-of-a-kind event. It's rare that anyone gets to attend an event in their lives in which you feel completely surrounded by "your people". Do you know what we mean? Well, for us, this is that event. So yes, we are beyond thrilled to be hosting a round table this year talking about a subject we know all too well: Going Into Business with Friends. We were friends first and then decided to start a company together. We collaborate with friends for blog posts, design work and beyond, so we have lots of knowledge to share and can't wait to answer any questions you might have for us!

So, we want to know, Are you thinking about going into business with a friend? Have you already started but are looking for some guidelines to follow? Are you scared to talk about money or legal issues....it's a little different than talking about what movie you want to go see, eh? Well, shoot your questions our way and we'll make sure they get answered at our round table. Just email us at hello (@) ampersanddesignstudio.com and use subject: Business w/ Friends Q's!

Alt Summit is just around the corner: January 23rd-25th, 2013. Salt Lake City, Utah.

We hope to catch up with old friends and make many new friends at Alt this year, so please come by and say hi! And lookie, a whole box of brand new business cards showed up just in time for Alt! You get a sneak peak of some of our latest patterns designs on the back side, so you just might want to collect more than one :)
