Taken with Instagram.

This afternoon we brainstormed big ideas for Deskey’s upcoming milestone birthday…

Taken with Instagram. 😀💻🎂🎉❤️

Tag! You’re it.

There was that really cool “Mark Rothko-esque” graffiti cover-up on the side of this building in downtown Cincinnati. Someone wasn’t all that happy about their bomb being bombed, and I found it pretty funny…

I guess it’s important to maintain your sense of humor when someone ruins all of your hard work. And that’s a very important lesson to learn, especially in my industry. Taken with Instagram. 😀🎨🖌️❤️

Deskey fall barbeque weenie roast.

We had a fall barbeque weenie roast potluck sort of thing at Deskey this afternoon

It made for a pretty fun Friday at work. 😀🌭🔥❤️

Tag! You’re it.

I guess when someone covers up your work it’s important to maintain your sense of humor even when your work is on the side of a building…

I’m still keeping an eye out for more examples of this. It’s kind of beautiful in its own unique way. Taken with Instagram. 🎨🖌️❤️

Seen and noted.

Downtown Cincinnati’s Wood Hardware is all in the Halloween spirit…

And we picked up a couple of pumpkins for our front porch. 😀🎃❤️

Good morning from CBD.

Good morning from Central Business District in downtown Cincinnati. I took this photo just outside of work this morning. Taken with Instagram. 😀🌇❤️

The Dennison Hotel Park.

Remember when I saw people putting the finishing touches on a cute little park on the site of the old Dennison Hotel? I walked by it again today. And it wasn’t so cute.
It was all artificial turf grass and the entrance was padlocked shut…

I don’t understand why they would even bother making it look presentable only to not allow anyone into this space. But then again, people suck especially the people who tore down the Dennison Hotel to create this illusion. 😐🌳❤️

Deskey details.

Recently, I was put in charge of Deskey’s Instagram. I’ve been trying to collect photos from around work to use in Instagram posts. I also started my own personal work-related Instagram, @Dsgn_Life to post the other things not relevant enough for the official Deskey Instagram or more personal to my everyday experiences at Deskey…

Recently, Deskey officially became part of downtown Cincinnati’s brand new Eighth Street Design District. And there’s a sign in front of the building to prove it…

The Deskey mantra is on the front windows of the building…

In the foyer is the ongoing Deskey Hand Culture Project. Everyone contributed their own personal tchotchke to be displayed…

This was my contribution. One of the magnets we made for our wedding

Our lobby…

Personal. Simple. True. They are the words we live by at Deskey…

PERSONAL defines everything we do. We’re humans relating to humans, so we seek the shared values that connect us. SIMPLE ideas are memorable, easily spread and can change the world. We distill ideas to the most instinctive form possible. TRUE is being authentic and transparent. Follow your beliefs, embrace your principles, and you’ll attract those who do the same.

And we celebrated a couple of big wins…

The second had really odd ingredients to celebrate a new client from up north…

I’m excited to get to share more about Deskey through Instagram. You can see all the photos I’ve uploaded from Deskey in my Deskey Flickr album. 😀📷❤️

The final Reds game of the 2018 season.

Today was the final Reds baseball game of their 2018 season. We ducked in one of the side gates because the main gate at Crosley Terrace was just a sea of people. Everyone must have had the exact same thought as us, “Shoot, it’s the last Reds game of the season. We better go to the game today.” There were a bunch more people at this afternoon’s game than there were on Wednesday night. We headed straight upstairs to the terraces on the Fioptics District…

And then after a bit, we headed down to the terrace by the Bowtie Bar…

We got to see the final live mascot race…

Near the end of the game, Tucker Barnhart came in to play first base…

And the Reds lost 6-5 to the Pirates in the tenth inning…

After the ballgame, we went to hang out at the Fox Sports Ohio condominium…

It was another great season of Reds baseball. And where they might not have had the best season, they are always fun to watch. It’s going to be weird next week when we get home from work and try to find something to watch on tv. During baseball season, it’s a no-brainer. Just turn on the Reds game. I’m going to miss watching them. Hopefully next summer, we’ll be able to make it to more than just three games. Thank you Reds baseball for once again being the soundtrack of my summer. 😀⚾️❤️😍

How many days until pitchers and catchers report for spring training?

Back to Great American Ball Park.

It’s hard to believe that we’re in the final week of the 2018 Reds baseball season. It’s also really hard to believe that we only made it out to Great American Ball Park once this season. We’ve watched almost every Reds game on TV. But between my surgeries and all the FC Cincinnati soccer games, we only took in one Reds game all the way back at the beginning of the season. Tonight, our Redlegs were playing the Kansas City Royals and we actually managed to get down to the ballpark to take in our second Reds game of the season…

This was our first time passing through a metal detector since I’ve had both of my hips replaced. When we were at the Reds back in April, I had only one replaced hip. And it didn’t set off the metal detector. But both hips set the metal detector right off. Twice. I had to explain that I had both hips replaced and then get wanded. So there’s something to look forward to for the rest of my life. It was great to finally be back at GABP…

We headed up to the new Budweiser bowtie deck…

BARGE!

We headed over to our seat in the Fioptics District to chase the last rays of sun…

I wonder how many free pizzas LaRosa’s gave away this season when the Reds pitchers tallied 11 strikeouts in a game. I’m guessing not that many…

We walked over to the gap…

I love Reds game where you feel like you have GABP all to yourself…

And then we moved down to the lower deck down the third base line…

The Reds lost. But it was great to finally be back at GABP again. It’s still one of my very favorite places in the whole world. When we were walking back to the car, check out how gorgeous the moon was above Lytle Park…

😀⚾️🌕❤️
