Tim Bruce, founder of LOWERCASE, Inc. will speak at The Columbus Society of Communicating Arts on Thursday, April 16th at 7:30. Everything about his work is unexpected. Even the all caps representation of LOWERCASE — the firm he founded in Chicago in 1998. Tim Bruce’s work has been recognized in every major national and international design competition, featured in leading graphics publications, and is on display as part of museum collections in Denver, New York and Hamburg, Germany. Tim lends his expertise as a judge of design competitions, as the president of AIGA Chicago, and soon, as a guest speaker at CSCA. Come Early...a pre-event social hour (starting at 6:30) includes one complementary drink, hors d'oeuvres, and a chance to win one of several special door prizes. See you there!
The Columbus Society of Communicating Arts will feature Wink, a serious Minneapolis-based design firm that never takes itself too seriously. Its homepage is about as lo-fi as it gets. Its blog is woefully out of date. Its corporate story is retold with handheld KISS action figures. But Wink’s work — that’s another story. The agency’s identity, packaging, poster, and environment design has been embraced by some of the biggest brands around (Nike, Target, MTV, to name a few). Wink delivers colorful, breakthrough work (whimsical and serious) that’s been celebrated in all the major design books, including CA, How, and ID. Join us to hear Wink founders, Richard Boynton & Scott Thares on Thursday, February 19th in Knowlton Hall on the OSU campus.
