Thank you, Meg!

We want to give a ginormous thank you shout out to graphic designer and Impolite Company friend, Meg Flynn!

She designed a number of small logos for us that we're going to be using across our social media platforms and in various ways going forward. She also did some great promotional imagery for the friends and family screening of Middle Ground.

She's awesome, she does great work, and she's probably the most budget-friendly creative person I've ever collaborated with.

Check out her Etsy store:

Do not hesitate to work with this woman.

The grant money will go toward completing both films. The HFPA is the association that hands out the Golden Globes.
