When contacted by the Scholarship Foundation to consider a remake of its ScholarShop high-end retail space, we knew it was the perfect job for us: highly visible space, multiple constituencies, quick turnaround, a strict budget. Nothing like a challenge to bring out our best! The location across from the Galleria Mall certainly has retail competition, yet there's no place quite like it.

Sending out stacks of resumes, slapping on a cheerful smile for lame networking events, and finally scoring an interview for an honest-to-gawd real job (no more internships, woohoo!) was even harder. Guess what? Your education still isn't over. Unless you got an MBA and a certificate in psychiatry along with that architecture degree, chances are you're still learning just as much on the job

We put the fun in fundraising. In honor of St. Louis Design Week, we got the boss to dress up in a chicken suit and throw eggs off a 25-foot lift in the parking lot for an old-fashioned egg drop to raise money for Adams Elementary School.
