Simplified, zenith means the point directly above you. This gives each of us our own unique zenith, a perspective relative to where we are in this moment.
We are all on our own journey with focus on our own perspective while celebrating our collective zenith.
Join us as we showcase the work of a group of diverse and talented designers and developers, and as we celebrate the end of one journey and the beginning of another.
The view is incredible from here…
