BOO!Happy Halloween from the M+F team! It’s been an eventful few days here at the studio, and we’ve been getting into the holiday spirit (ba-dum-ching) with lettering projects and all kinds of festive posters. Earlier this week, we launched the website we designed for Grand St. Settlement’s annual Let’s Pretend Ball. This gala fundraiser benefits communities on both sides of the Williamsburg Bridge, and we’re so proud to be involved in such an impactful event. Check out our in-depth case study about this single-page, responsive site! We also created buttons for the Why Tuesday? campaign, which aims to improve and raise awareness about America’s low voter turnout.
It’s hard to believe that it’s now been two years since Hurricane Sandy hit our region. The recovery is far from over, but there are many channels through which you can help. Occupy Sandy provides an active network for volunteers, donations, and news-- your stories need to be heard.

Around the Neighborhood
Trying to decide which Halloween events to go to in Brooklyn can be a frighteningly daunting experience. Tonight (10/31), we recommend Halloween 313, an annual theatrical event for all ages right in our neighborhood. Their creative team puts on a new original play each year, providing an elaborate, spectacularly spooky outdoor experience for all who attend. Head over to 313 Clinton Ave. from 5pm on— the free show will be performed every half hour! Don’t have a costume? There’s still time to whip up one of these clever, last-minute DIY ideas from this Brokelyn article — with illustrations by Shaylyn.
