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. 😀🌇❤️

Pause for paws.

This is Richie, one of the dogs that shows up in the office every now and then…

He freaks me out because most of the time it looks like he doesn’t have any eyes. 😬🐾❤️

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. 😐🌳❤️

Happy National Taco Day!

Today is National Taco Day! I celebrated the holiday by walking to get two nacho cheese chalupas from downtown Cincinnati’s Taco Bell Cantina… 

Chalupas are kind of like tacos, right? Either way, they’re still delicious. 😀🌮❤️

 

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. 😀📷❤️
