Congrats on becoming the first feline featured on a Midwest Nest cover!
Your pose was purr-fection.
Yes, upon reaching edition #6, we're celebrating everything...including cats on the cover.
It's almost impossible to believe that we've reached the half-way mark of our first year. Not long ago, Susan and I were planning our first issue, hanging out at Barnes & Noble, and having deep conversations about logos, fonts and concepts with our lead designer, Noah Kupcho. One issue in, we threw a launch party and prayed we'd have the community's support. Thankfully, we have amazing friends and family and happen to live in an extremely supportive community. So, that night, we found ourselves surrounded by people we love, admire and appreciate. Thank you.
Fast forward a few issues and we were told that our October and November issues had won a total of three American Ad Federation of ND awards for design and layout. It's safe to say, all of those deep conversations over coffee had finally accumulated to something we could be proud of. As much as we love awards, there's one thing that's far more important to us; winning the hearts of our readers.
Our purpose has always been to be a reliable industry resource and source of entertainment for all of our readers. We want you to feel what we feel when we step into each home. Specifically, we want you to get to know the people who have worked months, sometimes years, to create that space. Almost every finished home is a collaboration of talented people, working closely toward one end-goal. If you think about it from their perspective, imagine having your boss enter your office and announce that you have to work with five, maybe ten different companies to complete one project? Yikes... and bravo to those who survive to tell the tale. This is just one of the many reasons why we love what we do and who we write about - especially when that subject is feline and furry.
Cheers to our readers, friends and family for guiding us through six editions of pure joy!
