Slacking Off – Spring 2021 Edition

By Dahlia Lilleslatten, Communications

Editor’s note: We’re back with another Slack culture post! This Spring, we welcomed a new developer to the North Street team (hi, Alex!) and celebrated the return to a “new normal” as our team ‘vaxxed’ up and met in person for the first time in an entire year. In a nod to the warm summer months approaching, our Slack avatars are inspired by our favorite ice cream truck flavors.

Designer Combines Papyrus and Comic Sans, The End Is Near.

Comic Sans and Papyrus, two font names that are like nails on a chalkboard to designers. The only thing that could potentially top seeing these two choices in your font folder would be if for some ungodly reason, some evil mastermind combined the two. Well, this dream has just become a reality thanks to Ben Harman…
