Swim Shady

Swim Shady is our fish. We love his style, he’s chosen a minimalist design for his office space. Swim daily sports our signature Larison Media teal, and enjoys long naps with the occasional afternoon snack. He’s an artist at heart, (although a little detached from his feelings,) and prefers observing over participating. He keeps to himself most of the day, and we respect his brooding need for creative space.
