Things have been insanely busy around here recently, but I did want to take a moment to acknowledge World Intellectual Property Day. This year’s campaign is “Reach for Gold”, taking a closer look inside the world of sports.

When I first started designing the Harvey Mercheum website, I wanted the exhibit pages to be as distraction-free as possible, which lead me to remove the sidebars.

I found the WP-Print plugin and have been using it since the website launched in 2014. The output originally looked like this:

While it would be easy to be upset with this number, I am actually quite pleased, because eight of the nineteen were guest exhibits! Thank you everyone who contributed this past year.
