Wall Dogs of NYC

In an age with instant communication at your fingertips and digital marketing on every platform, there are those who still get out messages the old-fashioned way, with a paintbrush and some attitude. They call themselves “wall dogs,” says one veteran of the trade, “because we are chained to a wall all day by our safety harness, and we work like dogs.” Vocativ spent a day with these blue-collar artists as they paint advertisements high above the streets of New York City.

Filmmaker Wes Anderson has a pretty recognisable style, often opting for the same orange typography, neatly centered shots, and kooky soundtracks. Keeping these signature techniques in mind, Vimeo user Louis Paquet has remade the opening credits to classic 1994 American movie Forrest Gump as if it had been directed by Anderson instead of Robert Zemeckis

Havana Bikes

Cuba underwent a bicycle revolution in the 1990s during its five year 'Special Period.' Oil was scarce as a result of tough economic constraints, and bicycles where introduced as an alternative mode of transport.
Years later, the transportation crisis subsided and motorised vehicles returned, and the country's bicycle culture took a hit. Now, new bikes are difficult to come by and parts are not readily available, yet many Cubans still use bicycles daily and, despite the limited resources, a handful of mechanics provide a service to those who rely on their bikes in their everyday lives.

Bordo Bello NYC || Making of Rise and Skate

Since 2008, AIGA Colorado’s Bordo Bello has been breathing life into the Denver arts community and supporting mentorship programming. Through this skateboard art show, we have seen over 1000 artists show their work in celebration of the Colorado lifestyle – the connection of work, life & fun. This year we took it to New York at the AIGA National Center. Bordo Bello approached us to build a monstrous (pun intended) light box for the window display and we jumped at that opportunity. The result was phenomenal. This is the making of the piece we call - Rise and Skate
