It’s funny that trying to cover up graffiti with paints that really aren’t anywhere close to matching sort of becomes it’s own special kind of Marc Rothko styled minimalist color block graffiti…

I’m going to have to keep an eye out for more examples of this. It’s kind of beautiful in its own unique way. 😀🎨🖌️❤️

On our way home from Higher Gravity, I saw the remnants of what looked to be a bear sticker on one of the windows of the empty retail space at the Gantry…

I thought it was kind of neat. And I like bears. 😀🐻❤️

I was running a couple of errands around downtown this morning. And on my way back to the office, I saw this little guy in the crosswalk at Sixth and Walnut Streets…

I wonder what his story is? It reminds me a lot of the Toynbee Tiles around downtown. I’ll have to keep an eye out to try to see if there are any more of them around downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️🤖❤️

I’ve never noticed this warehouse behind the Cincinnati Ballet at the corner of Liberty and Central Parkway before this morning…

Now when we drive into downtown in the mornings, I can’t stop looking at it. And every day I wonder how people got all the way to the roof to tag up there. 😀🌆❤️

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. 😀

On the way home, I stopped at Urban Artifact to pick up some more Finn, and on my way out spotted this funny guy just around the corner from these guys
