A cracker of a gift guide - Lane Reeves of Metaphor Design's Wishlist

‘Tis the season, and all that! So we thought we’d connect with some of our creative directors, past and present – as well as some of our imminent CoLab designers – on what’s on their festive season wish lists.

As Dorothy Day famously said, “The best things to do with the best things in life is to give them away.”

She was onto something Ms Day!
