Weeknotes Week 058

It was a big week for us, this week 058.

We moved in to our summer studio, printed a newspaper, and finished the new website. Go team!

Our location, soon to be furnished.

The studio space is located right in the heart of Helsinki, along the pedestrian patch of Kalevankatu. We've taken over from the excellent team at Nordkapp, who've moved on to a bigger office elsewhere in the city. To inaugurate the space we had a small party on Thursday with some of our local friends. With a bunch of people dropping by it seemed like a good opportunity to make sure they go home with some information about Helsinki Design Lab, so we designed and printed a tabloid newspaper in one week. Seungho took the lead on this and he did a great job. We'll have to figure out a way to make these papers available if you want a copy.

And the last big item is that we finally completed our new site. Once the eyes have been dotted and the tees crossed we will launch it, which means that the next time you read a weeknote like this it will be via our new online home.

But the biggest thing on our minds this weekend is what will happen with Eyjafjallajökull. If the skies don't clear up soon we're going to have to figure out a plan B for the HDL Studios, so this week ends with cautious optimism.
