• How Ink is Made

    So this is pretty like much soft-core ink porn for all the designers out there.

    A Chief Ink Maker shows how colour and ink is created from the raw ingredients--powder, varnish, and passion. Everything designers and printers need to know about the process, the challenges and joy of ink making.

  • "Donation" - A Short-Film by @BrutonStroube

    / Comments (4)


    Is there any local shop that produces passion projects at the same quality as this? We submit that there is not. "Donation" is their latest piece, a delightful comedic short with some genuinely funny dialogue from actors that have starring roles in big time TV series.

    Ah the things we do for love. In our latest short film, Beth learns that matters of the heart can get a little wonky when donating blood is involved. Starring Stacey Hinnen and Dana Powell from HBO's Veep and ABC's Modern Family.

    The outtakes are worth the additional 4 minutes as well.

    Directed by: Paul Emerson
    Written by: Paul Emerson & Dana Powell
    Starring: Dana Powell & Stacey Hinnen
    Stunt Double for Ms. Powell: Janelle Foszcz

  • #LocalKick: First Ever Crowdsourced Beer Dispenser - @SynekSystem

    / Comments (0)

    Pretty clever idea to standardized the home-tap system that beer brands have been attempting for years. The best part is that you can fill up your home dispenser with any beer in the world. They may be taking a risk on the price ($299 backing level to receive a dispenser) but there's probably enough enthusiasts out there to make this happen. Maybe even in St. Louis alone. Oh and yes, this is a local kickstarter believe it or not.

    The video is no Dollar Shave Club, which you can tell is what it was inspired by, but it succeeds in explaining the product pretty straightforwardly.

    Fund it on Kickstarter.

    A set of unique posters that traveled the world, met extraordinary people and lived through amazing experiences. Each poster came back with its own story to tell, and was then exhibited and auctioned off. Love this idea of making the ads the hero of the campaign.
