This January, we decided it was about time to do more of something we love: share fun stuff with our friends. While there are plenty of fun design-related topics we could share about, we remembered the words of Paul Rand: “Everything is design. Everything!”
With that sentiment in mind, we invite to to head over to our Medium account where we hope to write about everything! Read posts like 7 Things to Love About Kent that shares more about where we live + work or our Valentine's Day-inspired entry Things We Love where we share about, well...things we love!

Saturday, September 29th was a momentous day for North Water! The street came alive for Kent Better Block—a day long event which temporarily showcased road improvements, community activities, artwork, and communal gathering spaces.
Painted sidewalks, narrowed streets, bump-out seating areas, and historical markers of N. Water buildings were just the beginning of the activities and improvements presented at Better Block. Hundreds of people also gathered around community games, food trucks, vendor booths, and musicians for the sake of being together and celebrating North Water Street.
This was an amazing event! We are so grateful to have played a small part in helping it come to life. Visit kentmilldistrict.com/betterblock for more photos!

New at E+E is our Shapeoko CNC machine! This machine helps to create accurate parts from wood, plastic, and aluminum. You can carve and create almost anything you might want!
This has been a great and helpful addition in helping clients create makerspaces. Most recently, we carved out over 100 words for Traveling Stanzas to use at their Chautauqua exhibit!

Throughout the last several months we have featured specific objects that we appreciate and the subject behind them as part of an Instagram series.
Objects include: Close Up USA maps, a broom, a matchbook, a Japanese knife, and a postcard. We’ve had some great discussions about the different meanings behind our objects and why we especially value them. Visit our Instagram as the Object + Subject to see the series recap!

On Saturday, June 9 we had the honor of participating in the Grill for Good event in downtown Kent.
We served up grilled pineapple as a part of this community event sponsored by the Kent Junior Chamber of Commerce to help benefit Family & Community Services, Inc. and the Coleman Foundation.
It was a joy to meet so many community members as well as take home 2nd place in the amateur chef category!

We’re all excited to introduce a long time friend of Each + Every—and now our new Project Manager—Grace Leuenberger to the team!
She comes to us originally from Pittsburgh (and most recently Nashville) where she has had ample design and project management experience in a variety of other roles. When she is not at work she enjoys cooking, baking, and hanging out with her Golden Retriever Tess.
Grace’s vision and initiative have already brought a selection of cool passion projects to life—when things need to get done well, she’s the right person for the job. So grateful to have her!

Each summer we take a day to reflect on the past year together and cast a vision for what we hope the the next year has in store for Each + Every.
This year we gathered at The Lewis and Ruth Affelder House at Geauga Park to bond together as a team, learn from the past, and set goals for the future. It was a great day with dynamic discussion, tasty food, and quality time together!

Last week, we participated in the first Main Street Kent Art Walk. This month, we had the privilege of hosting local Kent illustrator Susan Rich of Hazelmade (check out her work here!). It was a gorgeous Spring evening filled with many visitors, great snacks, and most importantly adorable handmade goods.
This is the first in a series of artist pop-up events which will take place on the first Friday of each month until the end of the year. We look forward to you joining us at our studio!

Earlier this month we joined the Wick Poetry Center at the 2018 Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference in Tampa, Florida to set up and host the Traveling Stanzas: Writing Across Borders exhibit.
Over 12,000 conference attendees gathered together to share their voices and words in the world of poetry and encourage one another in their writing journey. The Traveling Stanzas exhibit specifically called others to write about shared experiences. Over 200 Emerge poems were written and three group poems were contributed to by guests from major poetry and literary organizations from around the country.
The Literary Hub recently published an article which highlights the work and impact that the Traveling Stanzas exhibit has both locally and culturally.
It is an honor to be a part of a project that carries new voices far and wide!

Heritage Ohio is a statewide nonprofit organization leading the preservation and revitalization movement in Ohio. Last month Alan had the opportunity to be featured as a keynote speaker at Heritage Oho Main Street Revitalization Series focusing on Marketing and Promotions. Over fifty Main Street representatives from throughout Ohio gathered at The Kent Free Library for this event.
Alan explained the importance of placemaking and design within our communities and how when implemented correctly help to implement change—he helped to spark a discussion among various towns about what their town represents and how design would play a part moving forward.

Earlier this year our logo design for the Woodward Foundation was chosen out of over 1,000 entries as one of the Top 20 entries in the 9th Annual HOW Logo Design Awards and featured in an online gallery.
This prestigious competition sponsored by HOW magazine has been recognizing great logo design since 2008. HOW’s editorial and design team—along with judge Natasha Jen, partner at Pentagram—evaluated entries and selected the winning projects that will gain exposure on HOWDesign.com.
What a privilege to be recognized with this honor! Gabe did such a great job of establishing visual language about the Foundation while building on the credibility it’s gained throughout the years.

The Wick Poetry Center’s “Traveling Stanzas: Writing Across Borders” exhibit opened in January 2018 at Summit Artspace in Akron. All hands were on deck to set up as we exercised our construction, painting, and assembly skills as a team to bring this exhibit to life.
This was a long awaited exhibit—we’d been conceptualizing and collaborating on it for a year! As our biggest project to date, a lot of hard work with Wick’s team went into making this exhibit a reality. It was a special exhibit celebrating the power and impact of poetry.
The exhibit reception was an especially powerful time of hearing participants’ poems, learning about the impact of poetry in northeast Ohio, and illuminating how Wick’s innovative initiatives are transcending borders and boundaries to unite the human experience. We are honored to be a part of such a profound project.

Over the Christmas season Parkside Green produced a collection of recipes, readings, songs, and activities. We loved designing this book—especially bringing color and iconography into the system to represent each of the four weeks of Advent.

We had the pleasure of creating a website (which launched last week!) for our friends at Fieldstone Counseling. Fieldstone Counseling is a growing nonprofit working to provide lasting hope for life’s hardships. We partnered with them from a foundational stage, naming the organization after naturally occurring obstacles routinely encountered by farmers—but which can take on new meaning as construction materials. As a ministry, Fieldstone Counseling is dedicated to offering quality biblical counseling to individuals, couples, and families as well as providing seminars and workshops for local churches and organizations. Visit the website to learn more about the great work they are doing in northeast Ohio!

On Saturday, September 30 we helped as a sponsor at the second annual Kent Creativity Festival. We filmed video + took photos and interviewed John Crawford-Spinelli and Gloria Tilenni, the driving forces behind the event, to showcase the power of art in the community. People of all ages and skill levels to came together to create, share, and explore the creation of all forms of art. Some of the highlighted exhibits included: fashion school student mural, unity project yarn creation, interactive poetry with the Wick Poetry Center, and conducting music with the KSU marching band. It was a beautiful day filled with everyone using their creative abilities to express themselves and make an impact!

Partnering with the Wick Poetry Center on their various initiatives through Traveling Stanzas continues to offer us new and exciting design opportunities. We recently created illustrations for two major environmental installations, both of which can be seen here in Kent!
“Some Days,” a walking poem installed in Henderson Hall at Kent State University, is a collaboration between the Wick Poetry Center and KSU’s College of Nursing. “Firenze (Florence),” a poetry collaboration between young students here in Kent and abroad in Italy, was installed in downtown Kent’s newest restaurant, Treno.
Reflecting on the written work of these student poets allowed us to consider their experiences in a new way—our aim is to help our community experience poetry in a new way, too.

This past weekend, our client the Wick Poetry Center traveled to Washington, DC for the March for Science. For the past month, we’ve been working with them to create banners and posters featuring Science Stanzas, a collection of poems curated by Jane Hirshfield. At the march, they held workshops and taught others how to create Emerge poems, which people shared on social media with the hashtag #PoetsForScience. Learn more and see the collection at science.travelingstanzas.com!

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a workshop for local high school students. We taught them the design process, they created logos for local businesses, and we introduced them to Helvetica (the font) and “Helvetica” (the documentary).
(They loved both.)

The Traveling Stanzas poetry map website is now live! Created for the Wick Poetry Center, this website navigates you physically or virtually to public poetry displays around the city. We look forward to seeing this expand beyond Kent!
