The basement studio has been busy lately.

As mentioned previously, we finally installed at the Shoebox Gallery last week and it was exciting to watch Craig Hanson (Art Sign Graphics) install this new experimental identity for Sean Smuda’s gallery. This happened the day after the brilliant Works Progress sponsored event, Solutions Twin Cities Volume Four (previous post on the poster/card system here). If you couldn’t make it to the event itself, MPLS videographer Chuck Olsen still has the full event available via the Uptake. Work’s Progress also put together a great Flickr set of the event. More below, please for to be enjoying!
