Architecture 5c -

Well god dam, did I pick the wrong decade to graduate from Architecture school..

The above image is of John Morefield’s. A 27 year old who has been twice laid off by architecture firms in the past year, a direct result of the spreading world economic crisis.

“This what it’s come to, John? Going to parade down Market Street in sandwich boards later?

“I’m serious,” Morefield said, laughing when asked about his booth, which has appeared two weeks in a row at the open-air street market in old Ballard. “I’m here to answer questions. And I do charge a nickel. I’ve made a dollar today so far.”

He’s banking on more than a game of 20 questions, however.

Twice laid off from architectural firms in the past year when work dried up, the 27-year-old was inspired by a public radio program’s “Ask an Iraqi” show and Lucy’s psychiatric help stand in the comic “Peanuts.” Morefield decided to set up a booth, offer cheap advice on home remodeling — and hope the contacts would turn into design jobs.

So he built the small stand and painted his sign. He packed up his draftsman tools and laptop (for mapping research that extends beyond the top of his head) and set out. He secured space with market organizers, and brought a stool and a warm coat.”

A unique CD package – Wandering Pleiades

DSC_4700

Pleiades is a Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing female group. The group was founded in May 2006 in Thessaloniki, in order to contribute to the diffusion of the Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing.

Kostas Bartsokas designed their first album “Wandering Pleiades”. The cd package is designed from a single cut craft stock without the use of any glue or plastic parts. It was printed with pantone black and white. The package is inspired by their clean – vocal only – music and reflects an earthly and clean tone which is emphasized by the stock color and feel. The six Pleiades sit underneath the bridge and sing their songs. The artwork references the old bridges of Epirus and some traditional patterns of Epirotic knit ware.
