Correspondence in the workplace
Reread your favorite book, memorize a scene from a memorable film or learn the lyrics to a catchy song, we are all compelled in some way to take action. This indiscernible force, a fire which burns endlessly inside each of us, is a poetic representation of something greater. We, the working drones in this industry, call this flame the spirit. It is this that motivates us to create stationery intended to thank, revere, congratulate, and celebrate the people in your life. What inspires you?
