ABOUT YOUR RESIDENCY
Why did you decide to locate your business at TFI? What do you hope to achieve?
We decided to locate our business at TFI because of the copious amount of support and resources that the organization provides. We are excited to be in a space with other emerging designers, where we can feed off each other's energy, talent, and opinions.
