In the very beginning it was a welder, a wood burning stove and fifteen hundred bucks.

Frankly, we couldn't even afford a proper computer or saw. We picked up the phone and called everyone we knew and told them we could make stuff.

Some stuff turned into more stuff. More stuff turned into our first employee. Our first employee got a graphic novel book deal and left us which led us to our second employee. Don't worry Sarah, we still love you a ton and own all your books!

From there we have grown bit by painstaking bit. We work through the nights and ask the people who love us to understand that it won't always be like this. There are days we don't get to go home for days. We take comfort in a cup of strong coffee with a splash of pride in a job well done.

Our generous and creative clients give us opportunities to prove ourselves. They continue to believe in our good thoughts and hard work, and we continue to think well and work hard for them.

Today the Guild is a broad collection of artists, designers, architects, project managers, developers, carpenters and painters. We come together to lend our talents to making dynamic environments and unique experiences.

There are changes we would make if we had to do it again. The learning curve is sharp at times and the growing pains hurt like hell. In spite of proverbial skinned knees, we absolutely love what we do and are glad that it shows.
