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. 😀

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. 😀

Kobra in Cincy!

World-famous muralist Eduardo Kobra is turning the once bare facade of the Fifth Third Bank parking garage on Walnut Street into a public masterpiece. The mural pays tribute to Ohioan Neil Armstrong – whose “one giant leap for mankind” will forever be remembered as a moment of breathtaking awe. From ArtWorks website…

Neil Armstrong was a humble leader who inspired generations of students, explorers and innovators. Tune in over the next two weeks as Eduardo Kobra (fresh off of completing a record breaking mural for the Rio Olympics), works alongside Artworks local artists and youth Apprentices to bring his vision to life.
