Rita hits a fast ball

Grand Opening of The Base

New headquarters for The Base are a home run.

We took a field trip to visit the new space for this amazing organization, which includes classrooms, larger meeting spaces and professional-grade indoor batting cages!

The Base uses the power and passion of sports to transform the lives of urban youth by providing opportunity, education, training and encouragement to reach their fullest potential. With this new space, they’re sure to hit their goals way out of the park.

 

Denise Korn, "Changing the Face of Design"

AIGA Centennial 100 years of Design

Denise Korn, AIGA Fellow, was among those invited by the national design organization to create a visual statement celebrating 100 years of design.

In celebration of it’s 100th Birthday, AIGA- the professional organization for design, invited 100 design leaders from across the country to each pick a year from the past 100 years that has personal meaning to them and design a piece that captures it for them.

Celebrated designers from across the United States were asked to select one year from AIGA’s history and create a social, political or cultural statement.

Denise selected 2003, the year she founded Youth Design, as a powerful catalyst to inspire young inner city high school students to enter the design field, literally changing the face of the design community.

The piece, created in collaboration with senior designer Jeshurun Webb, plays off of Victorian England’s classical silhouettes and creates a sampling of actual Youth Designer’s silhouettes.

The pieces were unveiled at the AIGA Centennial Gala in New York City.
