This month's topic: Rest, Play & Creativity
We will learn ways we can ALL be more creative in our work and other aspects of our lives, not by trying harder, but by appreciating the importance of rest and play.
Mary Crombie graduated from Skidmore College in 1972 and set up an art studio that year at the Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, CT as a printmaker, teaching how to make, and creating, original woodcuts, handmade paper, and silk screen prints.
Mary learned the technicalities of graphic design while working as a designer for a printer, a publisher and a manufacturer in the Hartford area during the late 80s. Opened Acorn Studio in 1990, husband Chip joined Mary in the work in 1994. We are now in our 23rd year designing for small businesses, professionals, non-profits, state agencies.
Acorn Studio has provided graphic design services for more than 22 years (since 1990) for very small businesses, individual professionals, and nonprofits. We are a small company ourselves; there are two of us, husband and wife Chip Geer and Mary Crombie. We coordinate and team with colleagues who help us with writing, photography, illustration, web design and marketing expertise. We design all items for print and also for electronic communications. We strive to create more than design, by helping clarify a business' (or non profit's) goals and best qualities during the design process.
