“Coming Out”, How Presidents Make a Design Entrance

Posted on March 30th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on “Coming Out”, How Presidents Make a Design Entrance

  I have had the privilege in my career to work with many presidents of universities, colleges, and corporations.  A significant “creative rush” for me, are those presidents who are newly posted.  My work with them on their first project as the new president is a “coming out” and is rich with depth and opportunity […]


Legos for the Big Kids

Posted on March 29th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on Legos for the Big Kids

Clive Wilkinson Architects are geniuses!  We love this design concept; innovative, totally flexible, and how much fun!  It’s like Legos for the big kids.  Who wouldn’t want to be in charge of setting up for this meeting?  Upholstered foam blocks in great colors used to create some sound absorbing walls.  Or knock them down for a large meeting room […]


The World of Red Bull

Posted on March 28th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on The World of Red Bull

  Mountain Dew and Monster can drink eat Red Bull’s marketing shorts.  Just a few years ago these three energy drink companies were vying for the same (extremely liquid amped) people in the same standard advertisement ways.  Red Bull’s marketing campaign ads with the cheesy hand drawn cartoons saying “Red Bull gives you wiiings” were […]


“There is no spoon”

Posted on March 27th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on “There is no spoon”

  I will gamble that enough of you have seen The Matrix to get that reference. I think of that moment, when Keanu’s character is taught that it is not the spoon that he is bending but his mind, when I see the work of Victor Enrich. Enrich is a Spanish photographer who uses Photoshop […]


A Great Lady- Marilyn Glick

Posted on March 26th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on A Great Lady- Marilyn Glick

    This past Friday Indianapolis lost a woman who in many ways added a whole lot of sparkle to this lovely city. Philanthropist Marilyn Glick passed away from cancer at age 90. Although I have never met Marilyn or her husband Eugene it is impossible to drive around Indianapolis and not see the impact […]


Living with Treasures

Posted on March 22nd, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on Living with Treasures

I’m not sure if it is the change of season or the impending new episode of MadMen, but I have been feeling nostalgic lately and my Grandparents have been on my mind a lot.  They were a big part of my life and as I walk around my house I realize just how much of […]


Hand Tossed with Honesty

  You probably have experienced in some way over the past few years Domino’s Pizza new “tell it like it is” marketing campaign.  They have publically bashed their own “cardboard” (as one customer put it) pizza while showing all forms of customer comments in tv commercials, websites, social media and now even on a virtual […]


Ghosts in the Architecture

Posted on March 20th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on Ghosts in the Architecture

  What is your favorite style of architecture or architectural element? If I had the opportunity to build my own home it would most likely be some form of cubist / minimalist architecture while utilizing every available form of alternate green energy. However, I have a deep seeded love of all things old. I’m not […]

Prepping for Spring

Posted on March 15th, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on Prepping for Spring

I love Indiana right now.  Mostly because it is March 14th and it’s 80 degrees outside (this never happens).  Usually it is still cold, gray, and totally depressing this time of year.  But not today, tomorrow, or the next day.  It is warm and lovely.  It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to […]
