Pretty Much Everything: The Whole Story Behind Our Book
March 14th
Drinks with Designers 5.5pm | Speaking Event 7pm
Funk N Waffles, Syracuse NY


We got a book deal! That mythical call up to the big leagues. Hear the harrowing account of making our first book. From the contracts to the scheming, from the pagination to the design, from the tears to the nightmares…we’ll share what it’s like to cram your whole half-wit career into 256 pages. Learn about file management tips, layout shortcuts and other organizational tips & tricks that can be applied to the smallest of projects or that once-in-a-lifetime book project we still can’t believe we pulled off. And yes, the book has typos, and so does life. We’ll show examples of both from the making of Pretty Much Everything. Print’s not dead! Let this talk be proof. The entire presentation is dipped in Pantone Orange 021.
