The bookcase that we built.

There’s some pretty exciting goings on over at The Affair HQ.

It started as a sketch on a piece of paper with a protractor, which then sent us to the hardware store for 3 hours, then solving complex trigonometric equations (possibly the first and last time we will use the scientific calculator on our iPhones). And whilst we considered changing our logo to the shape of an Ikea bookcase, we persevered, resulting in a 1500mm by 1500mm bookshelf housing up to 50 books.

Take a look at the construction of our latest pride and joy. #fuckyeahpowertools
