Week of icons

This November, we joined forces with Adobe Illustrator to give a tribute to what we love the most—the craftsmanship of icon design. We called this celebration the Week of Icons.

Celebrating the Craft of Icon Design


Our lovely team of seven shipped a lot of great stuff this year. We also managed to balance that with some quality time with our families and loved ones. We welcomed one baby girl to the world and celebrated one marriage!

When it comes to travelling, we also stayed on top of the game. Our team members travelled to Lima, Mallorca, San Francisco, Pompeii, Barcelona, Lloret de Mar, Milan, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, Budapest, Amsterdam, Burgas, Berlin, Prague, Lednice, Mikulov, Kaunas, Madeira, Almeria, Granada… Yes, we love Spain 😅

Here's to a great 2018!
