From the perspective of Steve Gordon, Creative Director and Owner at RDQLUS Creative, every experience is an idea worth sharing, a story waiting to be told. As a world traveler, seeker of the scenic route and an eye for beauty and authenticity, Steve has the benefit of curiosity and the gift to recognize the genuine character of an idea. Which makes it no surprise that he created the name, 75 North to help highlight the true mission of the organization.
The Creative Mornings organization is an international entity that seeks to build and grow community amongst creatives—all creatives. This is not relegated to those who consider themselves artists or designers. Anyone who is a creative thinker, wanderer, dreamer… we all have the ability to be creative, given the opportunity and cultivation of that path.
The conversion of RQDLUS GOODS & CLOTH v.3 into the new moniker "HVYCRWN" is complete with the soft-launch this week, and it has been well received. It's extremely exciting to have the kind of response that shows the decision to shift things up was right.
I'm a bag'ophile. I love anything carry-all, especially sport-utility oriented with a good mix of high function and high fashion. I used this limited-edition pack for a 5-day trip to Denver, with four pair of kicks, clothing for the week, and traveling by train.
When I originally designed my logo, I tipped it slightly and nicknamed it the "heavy crown" in homage to my mother, who would often say, "heavy is the head that wears the crown" in paraphrasing the Shakespearean line "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown." And now it will replace GOODS & CLOTH in meaning all things hard goods that I produce in support of RDQLUS life & style.
A fairly unassuming storefront hides no special features or trickiness inside—it's fairly unassuming inside too. While gallivanting around the DEN, a friend & I decided we needed a chill place to have a sip and lots of chat time. He says (like everyone wishes a friend would say), "I know just the place." And know, he did… Bellwether Cafe
There are some projects that bear a RDQLUS touch that go unseen, and those are often the best of what I do. I am afforded but a brief mention to wink & nod at the work done. This is just such a case. RDQLUS was tapped to revitalize specific parts of the inner workings of the brand of the Greater Omaha Chamber.
Wireless is becoming the norm in connected accessories for mobile devices. I came across these JBL cans because of a sale at Nebraska Furniture Mart and the combo of great price and good looks got me to at least try them. So, here's the quick & dirty on the JBL Synchros E40BT.
In professional creative circles, things can dissolve into more of a battle arena… we've all been there in some meeting or during a project. But why? Why are we fighting to pull the cart to better places if we are supposedly moving in the same direction?
