This past spring I spent several days observing art classes at the School of Arts and Technology at Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Lincoln Center. MLK Jr. used to be just one school, but a few years back it was closed because it was considered a "failing school" by the New York Dept. of Ed (many students were failing, the school had a low graduation rate and there was also a shooting that occurred). The NYDoE then re-opened the school with 5 sub-schools located inside (schools are separated by floor levels). One of these schools, the School of Arts and Technology, is where I decided t...

Mother's main office is in London (Shoreditch, actually; it's slightly east of London and is an "up & coming artsy community") and the agency is considered one of the hottest creative agencies in the UK.

Formerly known by the code name The Venice Project, Joost is being la...

This site was create by the music genome project. Basically, you type in the name of a song or an artist you like and the program generates music that is similar to that song/artist.

I first came across this website in college. It was shown to me by a professor in my Digital Design class right before we started working in Flash. It is the thesis project of Graphic Design MFA student Maria Claudia Cortes. She graduated a couple of years ago from Rochester Institute of Technology and now works for Kodak. Check it out...it's a great tool for learning about color as well as the potential of flash.
