Community Recap #13 – Hello September!

Happy September! This month’s community meeting, held at the Iron Yard, had a great turnout with tons of new faces. After a hilarious ice breaker, we got down to business as usual starting with recaps of last month’s event. August kept us busy with Mama’s Sauce inviting hand-letterer, Bob Ewing, down for a workshop and lecture, the kickoff of our Designer + Writer Social, and the bi-monthly Dribbble meetup. All these events were a great success thanks to the involvement of our community members!
