Sketching Our Future
  • Cheers  Congratulations to our friends at Big Car! They won the "Land" category in Indy's Sustainability Awards with their project, Service Center for Culture and Community. If you missed last week's meetup, be sure to stop in and check out their space and latest projects -- pretty amazing! Also, congrats to PUP on their NUVO Cultural Vision Award, recognizing their dedication to making Indy a better place to live and work. #HoosierPride
  • Investing in Indy's Future  Lee Fisher, President of CEOs for Cities, gave a great talk at the Velocity kickoff last week. Erika Smith chatted with Fisher regarding the importance of downtowns, and the need for mass transit. #INtransit
  • Speaking Out  BoF ran an excerpt from System magazine's interview with Nicolas Ghesquiere, whose abrupt departure from Balenciaga late last fall blindsided the global fashion industry. The interview offers some excellent insight on the challenges in running a commercially and historically relevant design house. In particular, Ghesquiere ruminates on the importance of having "an extraordinary partner" to assist in managing the business and creative sides, to create something extraordinary. Indy designers - any thoughts?
  • Momentum  We held a meeting on Monday to address questions about our submission process for the fall issue of PATTERN Magazine. We're working on a transcript of the Q+As. In the meantime, here are the guidelines. Deadline to submit is Monday, June 24!
