CreativeMornings RVA: House Industries Session Review
In a one to two-hour talk, it is rare to find that many quotable moments. But Andy Cruz, co-founder of House Industries, has made a living out of exciting moments. He appreciates learning something about which he knows nothing. For example, they designed a new font and, rather than leave it at that, it inspired them to dive into the furniture business.
