Eastside Map by Emma Gundlach

Since moving to East Austin almost a year ago, we've fallen madly in love.  To celebrate the upcoming EAST Studio Tour and our first anniversary, we commissioned the incredibly talented Emma Gundlach to create a map of our favorite spots. 

How beautiful is this?  We're so in love that we are providing complimentary hard copies to all of our amazing studio rental clients. 

The master plan is to take you guys on an Eastside tour while I cruise the streets on Black Beauty (my fixie). Stay tuned, my friends because we're headed for a yummy ride!

The Identité Collective

We are beyond excited to have Anastasia Casey in our studio on the first stop of her The Identité Collective workshop series on August 20-21. As a professional graphic designer, she provides top notch branding services for small businesses with a conservative budget.

Not only is she bringing those skills to this branding boot camp, she's taking it even further by providing step-by-step instructions on how to effectively use your new brand design across your website and social media platforms.

After just two days, you will leave with a new logo, a perfectly curated mood board to carry out your new look across platforms, photography + editing skills, and social media tips to grow your following. How incredible is that?

Watermelon Mint Julep

What does a Mint Julep make you think of? The Kentucky Derby, right? But why should such a delicious cocktail be relegated to one day for an event that lasts only two minutes? They're way too tasty for that, and with the addition of juicy watermelon, you've got a inspiriting cocktail to serve all summer long.

Ingredients

1 1/2 oz. Rio Brazos Texas Whiskey (I like to use local or Texas brands when possible!)
½ oz. Russell & Mahoney simple syrup
5 sprigs fresh mint
6 cubes fresh watermelon

Preparation

Muddle simple syrup and watermelon in a mixing glass. Add mint and press lightly to release oils. Add bourbon and mix well with cracked ice. Strain over crushed ice. Garnish with watermelon and fresh mint.
