At Envato HQ the month of November was a big deal. Whilst the community let their hairy upper lips grow for Movember, the staff were going Mo wild. Those who were Mo growing reached celebrity status in the office, we even had resident photographer extraordinaire Jess Hooper take a photo of them each day! What she came up with was beyond compare and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Featuring the typography skills of Jacob Zinman-Jeanes and Barn music by Slats, we proudly present Envato Does Movember for your viewing pleasure. You can also check out the before and after shots at our Flickr account.
