Notes From the Road / Frankfurt 2015

Guten Tag!

After a short stop in our Portland design studio, we headed to beautiful Frankfurt, Germany for a quick buying trip filled with lots of inspiring city scenes. Frankfurt is one of the oldest cities in Germany, and because of its central location, a major hub for business and travel. The city is a mix of very old traditional architecture and modern high rise buildings. We enjoyed all of the street side markets, the convenient(albeit crowded) subway system, and the stylish and charming people that we met there.
