Mule Design Studio is a great little design company located in the South Park area of San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood. I first got to know Mule back when they designed the website for 826 Valencia, one of our web hosting customers. They’ve done some really amazing work over the years, including the great re-design of Six Apart’s website as well as design work for Federated Media Publishing, EFF and many others.
But it’s not just about the work. Mule has quite a bit of fun on side, with creative director Mike Monteiro constantly creating ironic and meme crushing t-shirts such as “US out of California”, “Webtard” and “Web 2.OH, Yeaahh!!”, just to name a few. One of the things that Mule has in common with Laughing Squid is our shared love of squid. Mike has created squid-themed t-shirt designs like “Welcome Our Squid Overlords”, “Angry Squid” and hopefully someday he will memorialize our fallen comrade with his “R.I.P. Giant Squid” design. He has also threatened to contribute to Laughing Squid’s side project squid.us, a blog about all things squid.
On Friday, Mule had a little shindig to celebrate moving into their new office space. Of course will all the toys and great stuff they have in their office, I couldn’t help but shoot a few photos. Congratulations Mike, Erika and the whole Mule team in your continued quest to make the web a better looking place.
