Design Team Update

First, let me say that we were overwhelmed by the number of talented applicants we received and we sincerely appreciate your interest in Studio Calico and the time and love that was put into all of your entries. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

We have spent many, many hours reviewing and sorting entries and agonizing over our decisions. Originally we planned to add 4-6 members to the team, but we quickly realized that it would not be possible to choose such a small number.

After careful consideration, we have decided to add 8 designers to the team, and we will be recognizing 10 finalists as well. We will make the announcement on or before Saturday, August 25.
