The Half and Half to brand selves [in public]

Monday, September 30, 2013 Time 6:00pm until 10:00pm

@ The Half & Half’s studio in Columbia, SC

The Half & Half + Good Fucking Design Advice

In a feat of questionable daring and thinly-veiled narcissism, The Half and Half will be branding themselves in their new studio space at 912 Harden Street – and everyone is invited to watch.

On Monday, September 30th the Columbia-based design and print firm are opening their doors to friends and neighbors for a house-warming, logo-unveiling, guest-speaking celebration of an important year for the team. “We’ve been in the new space for a while now, but it’s a slow process,” said co-founder, Sara Thomas. “Lately though, the place is starting to feel like home. With the new logo design about to go into use- it seemed like a fun reason to have a party and celebrate a little. It’s been a long, pretty wild road.”

Thomas and her partner, Nick Wilson, have enlisted some help for the festivities in the form of Good Fucking Design Advice co-founders, Brian Buirge and Jason Bacher. GFDA, a website the two Ohio-based designers founded while in grad school, is a hub for the creative community and a fount of creative professional advice, both practical and profane. “We, and a lot of the design community, love their work and spirit. When we learned that Brian and Jason were going to be in the southeast we picked up the phone immediately.” Nick Wilson added, “Though their experience is coming from graphic design, I think anyone grinding it out at the workplace will be inspired by what they have to say- it’s going to be a lot of fun, we’re lucky to have them down for the evening.”

Starting at 6pm, the event will be catered by local favorites El Burrito, with the Bone-In Barbecue truck slinging complimentary pork curbside.

You will need to RSVP by going to the facebook events page and clicking the the “tickets” link to be guaranteed super special swag from The Half and Half!
