Now with more masculine energy! Updated design ideal for:


  • the coffee table at your 80% male advertising agency

  • anywhere within 20 yards of a "Hustle Harder" poster

  • accidentally forgetting on a reclaimed wood countertop near the  the on-draft cold brew kitchenette of your conscious co-working space

  • allowing yourself to enjoy looking at a rainbow
