The Brixman Technologies Newsletter

This particular newsletter will be on a topic of the Time Travel device being developed by the company and how it's 'safe', and that nothing bad has happened since developing it, which may very well not be the case.

This newsletter is to maybe give untruths to the employees about the brilliant new device.

I will also be asking you to include one or two corporate documents within the design.
