Presentation


Overview

Since joining forces in 2015 and forming Slugger, Cam and Chris have made “fun” the focus of their studio – rejecting anything that is deemed “un-fun” as defined by their very stringent criteria.

During this moderated Q&A, Cam and Chris will share their knowledge on various subjects (and embellish at will). Topics of limited expertise include: making something look delightfully janky, baseball hats, shape-tool wizardry, sasquatches, collaborating without hurting your friend’s feelings, how to win big in Vegas, where to get a decent slice of pizza around here, certain fonts, a stack of books, a desk lamp, a browser window, my fingers typing, the period at the end of this sentence. Join us!
