Lots has been going on around these parts. So much so that this poor little blog has languished.
We have had the pleasure of working with our good buddies at projectLOOP on two recent projects, one big and one small, but both vitally important to their core mission.
The bigger project, the loopBOX, which involved designSTUDIO in its "normal" role as design/build firm, was to craft a pop-up shop from a donated 20' shipping container for deployment at FunFunFunFest 2014 (and future events) This space was to serve as a base of operations for the LOOP brand to get the word out to the attendees of the three day fest. Deployed in the middle of the action, it made quite a statement.
On the other end of the scale of projects for LOOP was the opportunity to participate in their 50/50.2 event. A fundraiser in the guise of an artshow and auction 50/50 sees talent from all ends of the creative spectrum put their best foot forward and donate art in the form of skate decks for a fundraising auction. We were honoured to be included in this year's event along with the likes of Michael Stipe of REM, Skating world Godfathers Tony Hawk, and Steve Caballero, BMX hero Matt Hoffman, and Simpson's creator Matt Groenig! A true honour.
The online auction is still open, so get on over to the 50/50.2 site and bid on some amazing art. Even better would to be to bid on our entry so that we put in a good showing!
