MESH Takes Providence!
Megan and Joelle of MESH were lucky to be able to attend this year’s A Better World by Design Conference at RISD and Brown in Providence. The conference brings together designers, thinkers, and innovators from all over the world to discuss socially conscious design and innovation. The weekend was an inspiring three-day extravaganza of brilliant people and the work they do. We saw some great speakers, made new friends, and toured the beautiful town. We were particularly inspired by the Design for America Research and Empathy in Design workshop and Sarah Drummond‘s closing talk. We recommend everyone try to make it next year! We hope to be able to attend next year, and maybe even, *dreaming big here* speak or host a workshop!
Thanks to the whole A Better World by Design team for putting on a great conference!

What have we been up to? So glad you asked. 😎 Liz here to tell ya last year we opened up our studio to the community for MAKESHOP and had some incredibly good times. This year MAKESHOP is taking a new shape- we’re collaborating with the the kids at Boys & Girls Club for a summer of design + coding workshops in our studio, and though we miss our empty storefront full of possibility, we have some sweet new neighbors, @vandaliadonutco moving in next door AND that’s not all! 👀 We’re officially opening our MESH space for COWORKING! So come join us — Drop in for the day, the month, or go big with a dedicated desk! Drop-ins are $20 daily with bottomless coffee and v good WiFi! Monthly floating starts around $50 and comes with a side of camaraderie 😉, and your very own dedicated desk and 24/7 access starts at $200. We’re trying to craft some creative community in a new way and we’re trying to keep it accessible! ➡️ Interested? Drop us a line email@example.com or DM us. Spread the word. Talk soon! 💙
