1) The Prop — Helping connect artist to humanitarian organizations
“So you’ve got all these artists, creating, painting, writing. We’re talking about the everyday creatives. But sometimes, our work makes it hard to see beyond what we are doing, to what we could be a part of.” The Prop is about connecting people doing good and instigating collaboration. The first Prop Event is September 23th in Chicago. RSVP for Every Face Tells a Story or check out their Vimeo Page and website.
2) Plethora — An iPhone app serving you inspiration everywhere
This new iPhone app offers design inspiration in a stripped down version for iPhone. The images come from 94 blogs, in creative fields such as photography, product design, and branding (including our very own Typography Served).
3) The Sketchbook Project — It’s like a concert tour but with sketchbooks
Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country. Afterward, all the sketchbooks will be in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library. ANYONE can participate, just choose a theme (such as “revenge,” “make mine a double,” “boys and girls”) pay $25, and get sent a notebook.
