This is a special year for FableVision. We’re celebrating 20 years of designing and developing a wide array of engaging media that have inspired, taught, and moved people to action. Behind this mission-driven company is a team committed to creating positive media to help move the world to a better place. This special series highlights some of our crazy-talented artist-friends we've worked with over the past 20 years. To help us celebrate our 20th anniversary, we asked each of them to put their own spin on a FableVision logo.
Read up on all our anniversary celebrations on our website here and stay tuned for more updates from the Drawing from Memory series!

Tell us about the logo you designed:
Most of my time at FableVision was spent hunched at my desk, listening to highly inappropriate music on my headphones, while in the act of creation. The rest of the time was spent learning from (and goofing off with!) an amazingly fun group of individuals.
What's your favorite FableVision memory?
I interned at FableVision between my junior and senior year of college. I had worked and learned all summer, enjoying my time thoroughly and secretly dreading when the end would come. On my last day, I walked through the whole building saying heartfelt goodbyes to everyone, and even taking quite a few pictures, all the while wondering what my next step would be. Finally, within the final half hour, Pete came up to me and casually informed me that I would no longer be an intern...because I was hired! That was definitely one of the highlights of my career, and my life.
