  • The Blind Photographer

    / Comments (0)

    Brenden Borrellini was born completely deaf and with limited sight that developed into complete blindness. Unstoppable as an inquisitive human force, after showing Brenden the buttons on a camera he very quickly took the initiative and started taking pictures. The issue? How could Brendan be afforded the chance to "see" his photos?

    Steve Mayer-Miller, Artistic Director for Crossroad Arts — an organization that develops opportunities for people with a disability to access and participate in the arts — wanted to give Brenden feedback on the shots he was taking. So he researched and found devices that would enable a two-dimensional photograph to become a three-dimensional photograph so that Brendan could be able to interpret the textures in the photograph. Wonderful human achievement on a number of levels.

  • Call for Artists: The Dot Show - @STLDesignWeek Deadline Extended to July 30th

    / Comments (0)

    Inspired by the 250th anniversary of our city, The Dot Show calls for artists, designers, and illustrators to create a representation of a St. Louis city spot of their choice, using a 7-inch wood dot (supplied by AIGA St. Louis) as their canvas.

    Participants will donate their work for a silent auction to benefit the AIGA Student Conference, Scholarship, and Mentor Match Program.

    Pay tribute to the uniqueness of your neighborhood, coffee shop or studio couch. Share with the world the place where you find inspiration. Feel free to explore textures and materials alongside traditional illustration techniques. Your interpretation can be as abstract or as literal as you wish. Just remember, each dot must easily hang on a nail on a wall, or sit comfortably on a pedestal.

    Submit your application including name, email, phone, chosen city spot, and links to work samples to thedotshow@aigastlouis.org

  • Apple Stickers Up The Macbook Air in Latest Ad

    / Comments (0)

    This deceptively simple ad is interesting to us for a couple reasons. One, this is the first time Apple has ever pierced the perfect form/idea of their crystalline product shots with stickered and used laptops (look closely). And secondly, it's an interesting return (yet also departure?) from a product-focused ad - albeit one that focuses on it as an object of passion to their owners.

  • New Editorial: 10 Things the St. Louis Startup Scene Needs to Grow - @MattMenietti >>

    / Comments (0)

    Matt Menietti, a local startup guru and partner, writes about the 10 things St. Louis needs for the startup scene to grow. While you'll see plenty of articles discussing how St. Louis is a startup/tech hub, you won't see many articles talking about what it needs to do next. That's why this article is a valuable self-evaluation of what's going on and how the scene should evolve.

    "Outside of the construction of new bike paths to make St. Louis magically cool again, what did we need to do to really push the ecosystem forward?
