Things are changing around the 818 office once again, we hired two spring interns! Get to know them with a few This or That questions:



Coffee or tea? Coffee.

Black or white? Black.

Pepsi or Coke? Dr. Pepper.

Early bird or night owl? Night Owl.

Winter or summer? Summer.

PC or Mac? Mac.

Ketchup or mustard? Neither… can I just have chocolate syrup instead?

Crushed ice or cubed ice? Just water please.

Numbers or letters? Letters.

Pen or pencil? Pencil.

Grammys or Oscars? Well they both play during the Walking Dead so…

Call or text? Call.

Roller coaster or Ferris wheel? Roller Coasters… oddly enough I’m terrified of ferris wheels.

Stripes or solids? Solids in clothing and Stripes in pool.

Bright colors or neutral tones? Neutral tones with one bright color.

InDesign or Illustrator? Illustrator.

T-rex or Pterodactyl? T-Rex.

Sans Serif or Script? San Serif.

Instagram or Twitter? Instagram.

Digital or Analog? Digital.

White & Gold or Blue & Black? I see black and blue.




Coffee or tea? Black coffee or Earl Gray tea; depends on the day.

Black or white? Black on black on black on black.

Pepsi or Coke? Coke gives me heartburn but I love the memorabilia…Eh. Pepsi by default?

Early bird or night owl? I’m a bit of both which doesn’t work well for me, but I probably lean towards the night owl side. What is sleep?

Winter or summer? Fall. I love cold(ish) weather and the clothes it lets me wear, but I love outdoor activities that only warm weather allows.

PC or Mac? Mac all the way!

Ketchup or mustard? Mustard; specifically honey mustard.

Crushed ice or cubed ice? Cubed!

Numbers or letters? Hmm. I’d say letters, but I love symbols in typography. Specifically ampersands and at symbols (&@).

Pen or pencil? Pencil. Sketching in lead is my favorite.

Grammys or Oscars? Grammys! Music is life.

Call or text? Call- it’s faster and I get my point across better. FaceTiming is my favorite because then the person I’m talking to gets to see my unintentional weird facial expressions.

Roller coaster or Ferris wheel? Ferris wheel- roller coasters and I don’t have a great “track” record…(Haha. I like puns.)

Stripes or solids? Solids!

Bright colors or neutral tones? Neutral tones- it’s rare that you’ll find me in anything other than gray or black.

InDesign or Illustrator? Illustrator because it’s less structured.

T-rex or Pterodactyl? Pterodactyl. Petrie from the Land Before Time was one of my favorite movie characters as a child.

Sans Serif or Script? Script, but only if it’s done right. I do love a nice sans serif font though. Raleway is my current favorite. The capital W rocks.

Instagram or Twitter? Instagram for sure. It’s like a digital photo journal and I love it. I look back at my own photos more than anyone else’s.

Digital or Analog? Analog. It challenges me more and I love wearing a watch. It’s sad that I feel so authentic when I look at my wrist for the time rather than tapping my phone screen.

White & Gold or Blue & Black? Blue & Black. That freaking dress gives me anxiety!


Both Lu and Chandler are in the design program at Iowa State University. We are looking forward to the additions to our team and will probably be celebrating with tacos.
