transformation at work

Our collaborative met last night to continue working on a project we started earlier this summer: revamping the local office of the National Conference for Community and Justice. Our ultimate goal is to transform the space in such a way that it better reflects the group's noble work and mission: to build a community free of bias, bigotry and racism.nccj-1
These are a couple of the quick sketches we put together during the meeting to better share our collective vision with the client.

Today I'm definitely experiencing the sparks that occur when passion and 'work' intersect!
