A new way to make brands

For the last ten Monday afternoons, as winter turned into spring, I’ve been working with my 22 brand leadership students on three real-life client projects. Classroom 2.03 is a bit of a hothouse, literally and metaphorically, so it’s been heady stuff. And week by week, it’s…

It’s been a busy start to 2014. Posts on MTTB™ have slowed, largely because I’m in the midst of an incredibly expansive project in Cincinnati, OH. For the past six months, Kate and I have been working with the Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation to design and build a philanthropic lab called People’s Liberty. Through individual grants, ongoing mentorship opportunities and inspiring programs, People’s Liberty will provide Cincinnati’s emerging and existing talent with the tools and resources they need to move their creative ideas forward.

Recently I got a dog, well a puppy actually. He is a bundle of bounding energy, cuteness and curiosity.

He still has his baby teeth and he likes to try everything by tasting it with his mouth (it also eases the pain in his gums). Everything is new to him and there is…

The words in a book are known as the raw material. But there are other ways in which words can be used to represent the happenings within the narrative than a standard set…

In Reflection - The Self-Reflexive Page

katesmallshaw:

A page from George Perec’s Species of Space

The page itself can become a material, a statement, the information, the text, progressing or diminishing from page to page. The writer, thus becoming the layout artist of his book, will no longer write stories (or moments), but books.

Asemic Writing

katesmallshaw:

I have just come across something called ‘asemic writing’ which I have never heard of before. It looks like writing, however it is illegible.

Asemic means - ‘having no specific semantic content’. The meaning of the piece is open and so can be interpreted differently by every onlooker.

These are…

I’m working on these graphics for this event at the #PortlandArtMuseum, should be fun. Join us!
“Sit down with some local farmers, a curator, a chef, and an artist to talk about the pleasures and politics of food through the lens of the potato, one of our most common vegetables. Two potato-based courses will be served, one inspired by Feast and another by Famine. As we eat, we’ll talk about food as a source for sustenance and opulence, loneliness and greed, conversation and revolution. Then we’ll see what stands out in the current print exhibit Feast and Famine, the inspiration for this project.

The food (or potatoes) will be prepared by James Beard Award-winning chef Cory Schreiber, who founded the acclaimed Wildwood restaurant and is currently Culinary Artist in Residence at the Art Institute of Portland. Drinks will be made by Merit Badge. Farmers in attendance include Laleña Dolby and Sara Cogan from Zenger Farm, Justin Green from Working Theory Farm, Danny Percich from Full Plate Farm, and Josh Volk from Our Table. Also attending will be Mary Weaver Chapin, Curator of Graphic Arts at the Portland Art Museum and organizer of Feast and Famine (on view through May 4, 2014).”
