Creating collaborative landscapes: AMC 2012 visual identity

We view the Allied Media Conference as an energetic network of self-contained, radical processes. Each year, these elements combine and remix to generate inspirational and multidimensional landscapes where individuals and communities work toward building more just and creative worlds.

Our approach to the design and development for the ACM 2012 visual identity was deeply inspired by connection, transformation and participatory design. We set out with the goal to create a kinetic “kit of parts” that could be consistently utilized throughout all of the conference communication vehicles — whether a website, sticker, environmental sign or printed program. Through this work, we facilitated a collaborative design process that builds on the conference’s rich visual history and creates a platform for a library of unique visual language and co-design processes.

openFrameworks + Detroit + The Work Department + Collaboration = Awesomeness

In February, The Work Department co-sponsored the Technology, Collaboration, Community, and Change event with Emergence Media, rootoftwo, ArtServe Michigan, Allied Media Projects, MOCAD (Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit) and the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition. The event series was ignited by the openFrameworks conference which was also co-hosted by the The Work Department and OmniCorpDetroit. We had some nice media coverage from the Knight Foundation here and Michigan Public Radio produced a fantastic radio story here.
