Michael Bierut is one of the partners @ Pentagram in NYC. If you work in the creative client services industry — this is worth your time to watch.
“Our speaker at the January 2010 CreativeMornings ( creativemornings.com ) was Michael Bierut of Pentagram hosted at the fabulous Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn. It was our biggest CreativeMornings audience yet with 300 (!) NYC creatives attending.”
“The Italian magazine WIRED asked us to draw a map based on the scenarios developed by the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto to help the reader in the net of ideas and hypothesis built by 7000 influencers from all over the world.”
“Kind Lines is an art show and auction to benefit Surfaid International. The event, to take place in September of 2009 in NYC, was created by Rick Malwitz, of the Brooklyn-based Malwitz Custom Surfboards. Malwitz wanted to raise money for Surfaid in a creative, fun way that would celebrate surf culture and art. When he started asking artists within the surf community if they would be interested in donating a painting for the event, the response was overwhelming. In the end, 24 artists were selected to participate. Malwitz hand-shaped and bamboo glassed canvases, each resembling a cross-section of a surfboard, and distributed these to the participants. The rules were simple: any medium, any style, any surf-related theme. In September, these 24 original works of art will be featured at gallery in NYC, and an online auction will follow. The auction will be open to anyone, and is a great way to collect original art from some of the most brilliant surf artists. 100% of the proceeds go to Surfaid. Thanks to the sponsorship by Greenlight Surf Supply, Surf Source, and Swaylocks.”
Online Auction is between September 26 – October 4th , 2009
Great blog to keep an eye on — Jim’s son has been posting some of his Dad’s photos and he’s already got some great shots up.
“During the early 60’s, surfing took off around the world. It was during these days that my father, Jim Driver, started getting interested in photography. During the day, Jim caught rides to the beach and photographed many of Southern California’s surfing inovators. At night, in his darkroom, he carefully developed his photos into classic images that captured the 60’s style.”
