When Maya Drozdz (of VisuaLingual) invited me to participate in the Visionaries + Voices project "Autocomplete: A Collaborative Coloring Book Exhibit," I was instantly enthralled.
Just wrapped up another big project at Little. Our annual New Year Card always ends up being my favorite piece of the year. And 2012 didn't disappoint. This one was even more special since it involved the entire firm. We asked employees, "What little thing are you thankful for?" And we got some pretty unique answers.
After clients viewed the video, they were prompted to submit what little thing they were thankful for. We took their "thanks" and had them illustrated by different employees and added to our online gallery.
I created two things to be thankful for...
When the folks at Pecha Kucha Night Charlotte asked me to design the poster for their April 28th event, I was like, “Who? Me?” I was downright flattered.
Actually, it was about this time last year when I presented my own Pecha Kucha presentation (you can see it here). It was right when NMIC was getting started and gaining momentum. I felt so inspired and wanted to share my journey. The night was a blur and such a rush of adrenaline. But I can’t imagine a better place to give a presentation.
The atmosphere at PK events is so welcoming, and the audience is filled with tons creative minds from all disciplines and walks of life. It’s like a giant show-and-tell for grown-ups. Plus each presentation only lasts 6 mins 40 secs, so if you bomb, it’s a quick death. I highly recommend doing it or at least attending!
AND the upcoming April event is especially meaningful. Pecha Kucha originated in Japan, and in light of the recent tragedy there, PK Charlotte is donating all the proceeds from this event to the disaster relief efforts. So not only can you come support creativity in Charlotte, but a great cause as well.
More "Pop a Cap on Your Fridge" magnets! Not only did I find the soda bottle caps at Metrolina, but these sweet milk bottle caps too. I'm so fascinated by the amount of time and artistry that went into these seemingly insignificant caps. I wish that same attention to detail was more popular in consumer branding today. A minimalist drink bottle, with an intricate top, would really stand out on a shelf.
