Eugen Sakhnenko and Becca Gilgan are the minds behind Worker Bee Supply, an initiative dedicated to making purposeful work with a positive impact by promoting inspirational companies and individuals. They launched recently, and we’ve got a few prints to coincide with the launch! Kalpna Patel‘s “Make It Up, Make It Work, Make It Yours”, Sandi Falconer‘s “Make No Little Plans” and Ben Johnston‘s “The Present Is Theirs, The Future Is Ours” are the first three prints, and are currently in stock at our Kensington location. We can’t guarantee that any of these prints can cure procrastination, but they certainly do not lack in inspiration and motivation. Put one up on your wall and see what happens. (Because, hey, they’re an attractive bunch, don’t you think?)
