Hey All! You may have noticed some changes taking place around Design Public lately. That’s because the company has new owners! We’re getting some fresh blood and some of us old Design Public fogies are still around as well. Since the new peeps will be popping over to Hatch, helping you with your orders, participating in choosing new merchandise, Pinning stuff to our page on Pinterest, etc., I felt proper introductions were in order. I also felt like we should re-introduce those who have been here for the long haul, because it’s been awhile since you met. Be on the lookout for Staff Profiles over the next month. So, without further ado, meet one of the new owners. Take it away Todd!
