As it usually happens, the first month of spring brought days full of teamwork, communication, inspiration, brainstorming and rest, which we were keen to share with our over 21K followers in studio Instagram.
Getting closer to global design community as well as everyone interested in this sphere, we shared our ideas and experience via Medium, provided new answers on Quora and kept everyone updated with studio news via Twitter, Tumblr and Flipboard.
And perhaps the most remarkable event of the month was Tubik Studio birthday, which we celebrate on the first day of spring. Now studio is already 3 years old and the team has grown significantly both in number of people and in diversity of design tasks we are now able to accomplish. We had a fascinating party filled with warm memories, best wishes and high dreams.
