Hamilton Hang

We miss you on a normal basis, but with all this social distancing we really want to see your smiling faces. So, please plan to join us for a Zoom call (or two or three) so we can chat for a bit. We are asking some of our friends from the print, design, and type worlds to be our guest and co-host for each zoom call. So we can see what they are up to and find out how you're doing.

Attendees: You. Open to the first 300 friends that join us.

Topic: What are our guest co-hosts doing? What are you up to? What are you making?

Duration: About an hour-ish.

Note: Meeting recorded and distributed for posterity's sake.
