A few lucky Struckers got to attend – tickets are only obtained through lottery – and here are some highlights, and of course, feelings, which is what XOXO […]

Voltron…and Grace, our amazing intern.

Grace. Where do I start… I feel like interns are most often associated with constant time management and monotonous tasks. You’re busy, you need their help and also want to make their internship worthwhile by sharing your craft with them, but so much time is spent managing tasks and projects it becomes a detriment to both of […]

Struck Does Halloween

So, there were some pretty amazing costumes roaming around the office today. We had everything from Amelia Earhart to Father Dan, Chuck Norris to a college beer fridge, and a mysterious French dock worker to a Chicago-loving, axe-murdering clown. On that note, Happy Halloween!
