Deskey details.

I helped put up this wheat paste mural on the side of our building this afternoon…

It was promoting a Deskey/Bluearth sponsored documentary called LOOK & SEE: A Portrait of Wendall Berry

LOOK & SEE revolves around the divergent stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky who each face difficult choices that will dramatically reshape their relationship with the land and their community.

In 1965, Wendell Berry returned home to Henry County, where he bought a small farm house and began a life of farming, writing and teaching. This lifelong relationship with the land and community would come to form the core of his prolific writings. A half century later Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture characterized by machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and debt – all of which have frayed the fabric of rural communities. Writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window, Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one of its most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life.

Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle, LOOK & SEE blends observational scenes of farming life, interviews with farmers and community members with evocative, carefully framed shots of the surrounding landscape. Thus, in the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself will emerge as a character in the film – a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.

Pretty neat stuff. 😀❤️

They started working on our roof this morning at work…

Total Solar Eclipse.

The last time the United States saw a total solar eclipse was in 1979. One of my earliest memories I remember is watching that solar eclipse through a pinhole projector. I don’t remember if we were in the pathway of the total eclipse back then or if was just a partial eclipse. But this time around, we were going to see a significant partial eclipse…

And here is today’s total eclipse as seen from my office window at work in downtown Cincinnati. I started recording a video on my iPod Touch around 2 pm. I let the video run for 45 minutes. I used the Hyperlapse app to  condense the footage of eclipse to just 3 minutes and 45 seconds. But that was still pretty boring and the changes were still really subtle so then I ran the condensed Hyperlapse video through YouTube’s Creator Studio to condense 45 minutes of eclipse down to just 37 seconds…

The partial eclipse was pretty dang impressive when you condense it to just over 30 seconds. 😀🌞🌘🌚❤️

Today was National Hot Dog Day! I ate the leftover hot dogs from last night for lunch…

We had a cheese tasting and chat about all things cheese at work this afternoon…

My favorite cheese I sampled was the Tillamook Hot Habanero Jack. But it was cheese,
so they were all pretty dang good. I saw this cool little moped outside of work…

And someone lost their shoes. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a pair of lost shoes…

Later in the evening when we were walking Oscar, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky…

We had chicken and broccoli noodles with garlic bread for dinner…

It was sort of like Fettuccine Alfredo. But still really tasty. And then we watched the USMNT take on El Salvador in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup…

Despite a less than convincing 2-0 USA win, it was still a really good Wednesday.

Deskey+Elementz, part two.

A couple of weeks back, we met with some of the very talented kids at Elementz up in Over-the-Rhine. Today, they came to our office to present their inspirational work using the creative medium of their choice to develop concepts that represent community…

Those are some very super talented kids. 😀

It’s going to be a good morning…

When a box of Holtman Donuts magically shows up in the office, you know it’s going to be a really good morning…

I ate that maple bacon one right there. YUM! 😀🍩❤️

Deskey Water Games.

We’re celebrating hydration this month at Deskey. This afternoon we paused to play some water games out in our parking lot…

We have some fun. 💧😀💦

Deskey+Elementz.

We are working on a visual identity for a client that is all about the community of Cincinnati. We are partnering with Elementz, Cincinnati’s Hip Hop youth center. It’s essentially an urban arts center where inner city kids can gather and create anything from hip-hop to street dance, spoken word poetry to street art, photography and visual arts. We’re teaming up with four Elementz students for inspirational design to ensure our identity is representative of the community. The students were asked to use their creative platform of choice to develop a concept that represents their community.

This afternoon we got to meet with the students and tour Elementz…

Those are some very super talented kids. And Elementz space is pretty amazing. It’ll be great to work with this group and see what we can come up with together. 😀
