Sometimes the world is too random to be random. I met Peter McDonagh through Al while I was in Dublin. We had enough in common already with regards to graphic design and our work in the coffee industry but then we discovered a few really bizarre connections. Peter grew up with my former Irish roommate and is pen pals with another completely unrelated friend's fiancé from Nova Scotia. What a small world.
All that aside, Peter is a talented photographer and graphic designer. He's just finishing off his degree in Dublin with a thesis on coffee packaging. His current work is brilliant and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it as his career progresses. And, with all of our random connections, I also look forward to our paths crossing again.
