The Fieldwork office is closed between the 31st of August and the 19th of September. Curtis and Emily (Fieldwork designer) are taking two weeks out to hike between St Bee's and Robin Hoods Bay. It's about 200 miles and will entail 14 days of hiking, thousands of metres climbed and many nights camping out under the stars.

There are times when it feels crazy to shut down a business for this amount of time. But it is important for anyone running a business to get some perspective. We get ours by heading to the hills and breathing in fresh air. We suggest you try something similar, it's the best medicine and the most inspiring way to charge creative batteries.

If you've emailed us about a potential project we'll be back on the 19th with clear and fresh minds and a whole load of stories to share.
