Ideas on Productivity

Small Business

Three-thirty-itis is a thing! Just ask the guys at our local coffee shop around the corner. If you, too, are in need of a little pep-up around this time on an overwhelming Monday, we’re doing our best to oblige with ‘Quoted’ – a new short and snappy series of inspiring quotes from our fave local creatives.

First up, we turn to artist and co-founder of Dinosaur Designs, Stephen Ormandy, graphic designer / illustrator Kat Macleod, who is also the Creative Director at Ortolan, and stylist / influencer Stephanie Stamatis (aka Stephanie Somebody) on the subject of productivity.
