May 2009 Zurich



Every year the whole studio flies over to Zurich for a weekend to meet old friends, interns and see the degree show at the Z hdk. It has become a tradition to go and eat the Jumbo Jumbo Cordon-Bleu (a massive piece of meat stuffed with cheese and ham) in the Rheinfelder Bierhalle. This year Alex finished first, closely followed by Andy and Holger. Craig struggled the most and claimed experiencing dizziness apparently caused by meat overdose.
