We were graced with Katherine’s presence in our studio for the last 3 weeks. She is very dedicated to say the least, all the way from the University of Delaware, she came out to sunny San Diego to visit her cousin and interned with us during her stay. See what she had to say about her time with us.

“Being an intern at this bright and friendly studio everyday for a month was a great learning experience, as well as a lot of fun. I now have a first hand perspective of what it is like to work at a graphic design studio, which is miles away from working as a student. It was a pleasure getting to know Bobby, Joey, Ryan, and Angie! They prove that creativity, professionalism, and kindness are all equally important in successfully completing projects for their clients. I also had an incredible time getting to know the city of San Diego, as it was my first time visiting California. Taking a break from the East Coast winter was a real treat. I will miss the beautiful scenery, warm weather, and hope to return in the future.”

January happens to be a busy month in the studio. On top of all the New Year dealings both Bobby and I celebrate birthdays, another excuse to eat cake!

Yesterday Joey brought in an orange liqueur masterpiece that Jessica made for me, what a treat! Everyone in the studio chipped in and got me an assortment of green tea from Teavana, pretty much my favorite. My day was rounded out with an adventurous lunch of Puerto Rican food at the Tropical Star.

Thanks to everyone at the studio for a great day!

happy birthday to me

January 2011 Bobby's Birthday
Going to lunch on 1.11 was a given, but this year i added a special request—Jessica’s amazing chocolate cake.

Joey, our resident multimedia graphic designer is married to Jessica and she is a fantastic baker, spoils us all the time with her “experiments”.

I shared with everyone at Buchanan Design AND managed to feed a big slice to everyone at home. the icing on this cake was reading all the facebook birthday wishes and landing a new client.

Oh, and I also scored on a few more great items for the orange collection wall. 
it was a very cool birthday.

HELLO 2012

January 3, 2012 | admin

Hello 2012

wow, i can’t believe how fast 2011 flew by, but i’m super excited about the many exciting things ahead in 2012.

brand strategy will stay at the core of what we do but we will continue to push our creative skills in a variety of mediums. more application design, more website design, more animated video design, and more projects that challenge us creatively. i’m optimistic that the san diego graphic design community will continue to produce work that will help improve the poor economy and continue to help shape the corporate culture.

thank you to every client we worked with in 2011—we look forward to our continued partnership in 2012! cheers, b
