    [Lifted from Criatipo’s press release]

    Last week, Cristina and Cyla painted a wall in Bushwick, Brooklyn, as a tribute to the great poet Paulo Leminski who would be 70 years old this month. We are very grateful to our new friend Nev (No Entry Design), for all the support and contact with Livestream Public who gave us the opportunity to paint this mural at the corner of Morgan Ave & Stagg St. If you’re around, come and see it in person.

  9. Re: Form

    [Text below taken directly from website]

    Welcome to re:form, a new place for stories about design. Medium is a great place for a topic like design: it’s beautiful and it aspires to be a place where ideas find homes and audiences outside the silos of individual fields or blogs. In every industry and discipline, people are realizing that all systems are designed in one way or another. Design is everywhere — in our buildings and cities, our clothes and our devices, our institutions and our software, our food and our genes. It is that rare specialization that crosses into all aspects of living and creating. It is the inspiration of artists, the articulation of engineers, and the aspiration of entrepreneurs. It is inescapable.
