Observe this!

5 May

Why bother with celebrating Cinco de Mayo when you’ve got this going on?

Priebe. Six to seven-thirty (and beyond).


T-minus two weeks

21 Apr

{In the meantime, I’ll work on obtaining a better-quality file of this graphic….}

We’ve been to Two Rivers and back…

14 Apr

…and here are the pictures to prove it. Special thanks as always to Museum Director Jim Moran for showing us around the place and letting us play with all of that lovely wood type!

Hamilton Wood Type Museum field trip this Wednesday!

11 Apr

For those involved, here are the specs.

Rough Schedule:

8:30 Leave UWO. We will meet in parking lot #4, which is between the AC and Halsey.

10:00 Arrive Hamilton

10:15 – 11:00 Tour of facility

11:00 – 12:30 Printing: Group A (Group B lunch)

12:30 – 2:00 Printing: Group B (Group A lunch)

2:00 Printing stops. Clean up! The goal is to leave the place cleaner than we found it.

2:30 Leave Hamilton

4:00 Arrive UWO

Lunch suggestions: Fatzo’s Subs & Pizza is located only three blocks north of the museum: Washington (“main street”) & 20th. And last year, students raved about Phil Rohrer’s Diner, just a few blocks away on 22nd.

Coffee: there are two coffee shops downtown.

Ice Cream: just across the street (because Two Rivers is the birthplace of the ice cream sundae after all).

Folio Review Pix

4 Apr

Here are just a few images from Saturday’s AIGA Wisconsin Folio Review, which was held at UW Milwaukee’s very nice Peck School of Arts Kenilworth Building. (They have hand scanner access. Seriously. See bottom image.) UW Oshkosh was represented by five students: Lucy Boyer, Todd Johnston, David Kufahl, Megan Nettekoven, and Katie Scott. And our work looked pretty darn good.

The photos are a little blurry, as I took ’em on my cell phone. Never mind that: I like to think they capture the fast-paced energy of the day.


Of course, any AIGA event worth its salt has matching t-shirts for those working…

…and I was very happy to find an Alterra Coffee right next door. Masala Soy Chai. Nice.

MeeWha Lee lecture & reception today!

Design students at UWO should not miss this opportunity. And have a look at the show in the Priebe beforehand– it’s up right now. From the show announcement:

This exhibition presents a design manager’s portfolio in a manner to both inform and inspire students of graphic design.
