A year filled with memories

As we prepare ourselves for the turn of the next decade, we’re going down a memory lane of all the big things that happened this year.

As we look back, it’s been an incredibly busy year – with new studios across the world, books we’ve written, thoughts we’ve put down on paper, and design community events we’ve hosted.
