The Best of @mcmillianfurlow

Happy Friday everyone! We’re all delighted here at M+F to have a long weekend ahead of us (and what’s even better is there’s no natural disasters in the forecast). We survived both the earthquake and the hurricane last week, and our heart goes out to everyone that wasn’t as lucky as we were in Brooklyn to be spared any damage from Hurricane Irene. It was another busy week here in the Brooklyn Navy Yard — we launched our latest website project for McDevitt Creative and wrapped up the branding for an inspiring health initiative taking place right in our own backyard, Bedford Stuyvesant Food & Family Day. We’re thrilled to be a part of this inspiring event that aims to create a healthier community through education and awareness. Between all our hard work and meetings we still had time to tweet. Check out the round-up of our favorite links from this week. Follow us on twitter for more!
