Popsicle Holiday Dance Party

I would have to say that this years 2nd Annual holiday dance party was by far our best party yet. Our partners Graypants and Urban Artworks were outstanding collaborators we truly love those guys. – Oh and of course our photographer and video display god Patrick Richardson Wright who helped make the back of “Daddy’s [...]

Partying with the Public

We had a great time at our most recent party on August 3rd, thrown by the Studio Gypsies/Wolken Communica, Greypants, Nube Green and DKA Architects to benefit the non-profit Design in Public. We wish all of you could have been there! If you were there, re-live the night with these photos taken by Jonathan Junker. [...]

Immigrating to the International District

It’s kinda crazy going from corporate SLU to Art Central in the Inscape building, Here, we are thrown-in with all the other refugees from the 619 Western building who are taking up shop in the former immigration building after having their own building deemed not safe for the viaduct tunneling. Specifically, we are at the [...]

Corporate South Lake Union

We’re finally hitting South Lake Union – home of the SLUT (South Lake Union Trolley), Amazon and our host, ISB (The Institute for Systems Biology). For the uninitiated, the neighborhood is a newly rebuilt portion of town where Microsoft-magnate-turned-man-with-gobs-of-money, Paul Allen, has built tons of new buildings and created a hotbed of business activity in [...]

WTF – Does this article offend you?

I was asked by ARCADE – the magazine that covers the Northwest design world better than anyone else I know – to contribute an article to their latest issue. The theme was right up my alley: Design Practice Now: Less. In our case, less means no office and creating what we’ve dubbed the Gypsy lifestyle. [...]

Uphill Both Ways

With each new office location comes a new commute. I travel on new roads, see new people, new buildings, new traffic jams. Call it “street theater.” In general, my commute is by bike. Sometimes, it is by bus. Sometimes by car. By now, you all know that my working life as a gypsy is radically [...]

Feeling Substantial

We’ve got our gear laid out at the Substantial, thanks to the fine crew here. It was a job getting in; Everything has been by the book and, typically, we’re used to a little more relaxed in-and-out process. The red tape that was required made me a little queasy about this whole moving around gig. [...]

Limbo

You know what they say: If you’re not good enough to go to heaven, but haven’t killed a member of your family, then you get sent to limbo. That land of nothing special, where everything is smooth jazz and boxer-briefs. We Seattleites call it Bellevue. Well, the Gypsies have been in a similar place for [...]

Mix-Tape LOVE

I spent hours and days in high school and college making the perfect mix tape for the hottest unattainable girls and best friends – not to mention the self motivational get your ass moving mixes that got me through the long nights spent on college design projects. I still pull a few out today when [...]

FREEZE FRAME

If Gypsies know anything, it is how to arrange things to have a good time. We wanted to use our powers for good, so we got together with some friends to throw a big, fat party. Ostensibly, it was a holiday party. But it also helped us mark our first year on the road. We [...]
