SU+RE HOUSE at the Solar Decathlon!

And let the games begin!!! After more than two years of research, design and construction for the Steven’s Institute of Technology’s graduate engineering and architecture teams, and almost a year of work for our studio as their dedicated communications partner, the beautiful and brilliant home that is the SU+RE HOUSE is opening its door to the first wave of what is expected to be close to 100,000 public visitors at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon in Irvine, CA today.

Outfitted with a comprehensive system of signage and environmental graphics designed by our team, the SU+RE HOUSE is a living & breathing prototype of what a truly sustainable and resilient home can and should be – reducing it’s energy use by more than 90% thanks to its innovative use of solar power and strict Passive House standards, while simultaneously protecting itself from the all-too-real effects of climate change with ingenious flood proof construction that will allow it to remain safe and dry in flood elevations of up to 5 feet. We couldn’t be more thrilled that opening day is finally here, and will be watching the competition with baited breath for the next 10 days.

Our Romance Extravaganza!

Though Valentine’s Day is still over a week away, AIGA/NY members came out to our heart-themed MIX at the Wooly last night hungry for loooove. And we didn’t disappoint. As advertised, guests were showered with flowers, kisses, candy, and the sweetest of jams. And according to our informal color-coded button-based survey, fellow mixers were also looking “nothing” – of the I’m-happily-committed-or-a-fully-fulfilled-individual variety. Friends and work were left in the dust. Designers mean business.

If you missed the love fest you can be there in spirit by following our playlist from the evening on Spotify. Enjoy! We heart you all!

Happy Holidays from AIGA/NY!!!

It’s that time again – the time for AIGA/NY’s festive holiday wrapping paper designed by the ragtag crew that is the New York board. ;-)

We’re happy to say that our contribution this time was even more fun than last year’s (and no those are not CD’s the mice are eating.) If you came to the NEW YEAR/NEW YORK holiday party last night then you probably brought a roll of these beauties home with you.

If you didn’t, you can contact aigany.org to see if any of the leftovers are for sale.

Here’s to a great 2015 and more amazing programming AIGA/NY!

A private tour of the new Whitney

One of the many perks of working for the Design Trust includes a year-long membership in the Design Trust Council. As members, KMIP was invited to join a private tour of the new Whitney Museum, located at the southern end of the High Line.

Our tour began with a visit to the Renzo Piano’s onsite office and was followed by a visit to the gallery spaces with an incredible view of the city. The tiered structure will soon boast the largest column-free museum gallery space in NYC.

We can’t wait for the opening in Spring 2015!

Itty Bitty Cutie

A heartfelt thank you to Kickstarter

We couldn’t be happier with the results of last weekend’s Kickstarter block party in Greenpoint- the sun came out to support our Itty Bitty corner booth. Exclusively for this event we created a special edition Alien Monster tee in an outrageous Neon Green to celebrate Kickstarter’s 5th birthday!

Special thanks to all the Kickstarter block party visitors that came by, said hi, and shared some love and support! All the positive feedback definitely left us feeling invigorated, and completely excited about all the new Itty Bitty tee ideas that have been brewing here at Itty Bitty Headquarters.

There’s more Itty Bitty love to spread around, so be sure keep your eyes and ears open for new editions! Be sure to follow us on instagram @ittybittyproject!

Slow Motion Collisions

AIGA Slow Motion Collisions

This past Wednesday, our very own Agnieszka Gasparska organized and participated in a public conversation titled Slow Motion Collisions How Digital Design Careers Evolve moderated by Khoi Vinh, designer, blogger and VP of User Experience at Wildcard. This AIGA event developed from Khoi’s upcoming book of interviews with designers about their careers.

Along with Agnieszka, the panel consisted of Justin Van Slembrouck, Design Director of Digg, Jill Nussbaum, Executive Director of Product Design at The Barbarian Group and Cemre Gungor, Co-Founder of Branch.

Khoi led the designers through a conversation focusing on pivotal moments that shaped their design careers. In the cozy Bumble and Bumble theater, the panel shared anecdotes, insights and lessons learned to the audience.

The conversation only stressed the importance for designers, regardless of where they are in their careers, to put themselves out there to create opportunities for collisions.
