Our students keep racking up awards! One of our current thesis-year students, @kekekekekekekekennis has just been selected as one of the Society of Typographic Art's @sta_chicago “Top 100" for her Connotative Steam Iron Poster. This poster was done with the help of Megan Lynch, Kennis' Type 2 instructor and Art Director at Frog. A description of the poster is as follows - Using the content from an existing steam iron's instructional manual to create a connotative steam iron poster. This poster is expressive, painterly, emotive, illustrative, and as well as both typographical and experimental. Does it spin, emit sound, bend or remain still? Is it large or small? Quiet or loud? Is it associated with an action or emotion? The answers to these questions help to communicate through typography and determine the characteristics that guide the design decisions.⠀
We are so excited that our partnership with KIPP Columbus now includes weekly STEM camps for KIPPsters for the 2018/2019 school year!
Last week we worked with 2nd and 3rd graders to design alligator habitats.
Giving students a real world problem to solve can be a great way to engage them. It’s so wonderful to see the kids really think through the constraints they were given, and how they could work around them to reach their goal! #designlearning#designthinking#kipp#kippcolumbus#stemcamp#designchallenge
Stuck in the rain? Our store is cozy and dry, and there’s still time to take advantage of our Friends & Family Sale (20% off any purchase!) There’s nothing quite like a new throw, candle, pillow, sheets (shall we go on?) on a gloomy day like today to boost your mood. 📸: @splitpdc #westelmdc#sharemywestelm#friendsandfamily#logancircle

Participating designers and stagers will each have a designated vignette in which they’ll display the design of their choice using at least 2 anchor pieces from the ReStore.
Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and libations while you stroll and vote for your favorites!
A cute Autumn leaf doodle I did for a design challenge on my art amino. I don't have four seasons where i live, but I've seen all the wonderful posts about how great Autumn is and how much people enjoy these last few days before winter.
I hope this doddle captures the essence of Autumn for you Autumn lovers and makes you smile!
