"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Hellen Keller
We all have something to offer and we all could still learn a thing or two. It's our hope that we will see more collaboration between the creatives in our community.
If you are a solo creative or a design firm and need an extra hand on a project we would love to work with you.
Don't be shy - what's the worst that could happen?
Create More - For Art Force Iowa
Our friends at Art Force Iowa were hit pretty hard by the recent flooding in Des Moines. Much of their art supplies and screen print equipment for Street Cred Studios were damaged.
Through the end of July - all proceeds from the purchase of this shirt will go back to Art Force in their efforts to rebuild after the flood damage.
Iowa Biking is the best kind of biking.
