Concocting unique, special designs to match your needs gives us a happy high! We love being art nerds. We love tackling challenges. We love seeing the "this is it" expression.

Boundaries as Form

BY LIAM DUNAWAY
@ VOL 4 ON DEC 12, 2015

Every boundary forms a political position and depending on this posture, a boundary can transform the world or it can preserve the status quo. This is why the most important question for me as an artist is what position do I express through my work?

Momentum of Movement

BY AVRINA PRABALA-JOSLIN
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

In an emotional speech, Avrina Joslin makes a strong point, to why everyone should be a feminist:

What does it mean to be an anti-homosexual? What does it mean to be an anti-feminist? Can personal opinions or thoughts without activism affect the momentum of movements? But, freedom of expression you say? Well, thoughts have a way of spreading...

PKN Knoxville #13 Poster

We are lucky that Rob Laliberte of WDWRK | small wares co. was willing to share his graphic talents to promote the 13th Pecha Kucha event in Knoxville. A word from the artist below. ***************************** The idea was to design something visually striking using the literal meaning of PechaKucha "chit chat". It is about placing you in the conversation of someone expressing to you "Let's talk!" and "Thankyou" Arigato. The design aesthetic is a subtle nod to Japanese street art, neon lights, and Japanese cartoons. Depictions of characters that often have more meaning, then just a visual stylization. Through the meaning of colors, blue represents one-to-one communication, especially communication through the voice. It is speaking the truth through verbal self-expression - it is both the teacher and the public speaker. - Rob *****************************
