FPO NEWS

After 8 years of publishing FPO, its time has come to end. FPO has been a delight to curate and write for, as it has exposed us to some wonderful projects, ideas, and techniques that we have learned from and been inspired by. In the last year or two, however, we’ve felt a certain repetition in the content — which is not a critique on the quality of the work but a reflection of the type of projects being put out into the world — that we feel does not match the early output of the blog.

Also, traffic has dwindled and the time required to curate, edit, and prepare posts does not make for the best return on investment. We could keep doing it for the “love of the game” but, being only two people, our time is limited and we have to make the most of it, both in terms of what brings us joy and what allows us to pay the bills. Some of you may have read about the closing of Quipsologies as well… we indeed are in a process of transition and looking to keep ourselves motivated and challenged with new ventures. (Art of the Menu and Brand New will remain active, by the way.)

So, this is the last post. We hope you have enjoyed the content and continue to make killer print projects. We want to thank all the wonderful interns — Lauren Dickens, Cole Baldwin, M’Elena Holder, Duncan Robertson, Kelly Cree, and Jessica Mullen — of years past who have helped us generate more than 2,400 posts.

Thank you all for your continued readership and support,
Bryony + Armin
