So we tweaked our phrasing and asked the uber-talented crew at The Heads of State to indulge us by selecting some of their most unforgettable projects. As the last days of 2015 neared, four designers at the Philadelphia-based studio reflected, and each shared a project that they were especially fond of having a hand in creating.
