The reason for the gathering was an industry insider's decision to open her own studio, more on that after the formal announcement, but I also met a few other people who had taken that scary leap of faith to start their own companies. If there is a silver lining to this grey economic cloud, I think it will be that more people decide to open their own companies or go out on their own as a designer. I encourage those of you who are thinking about working for yourself to lay the groundwork now while you are still working elsewhere. It makes things a heck of a lot easier and if you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of getting laid off, you will be one step ahead!
