A boozy-blend of beach-ready bodaciousness and hot summer hijinks, Velocity’s Summer Drink Series finishes off with, “BIKINI MARTINI No.7” by Herzing College Intern, Danielle Fewings. Wallpaper of the Week for June 30. Make sure to check your local supermarket for Grade-A Canadian Pineapples and Manitoba-fresh Coconut before heading out to weekend festivities!
Happy Canada Day! -JB
Picture yourself on a boat on a river,
with juniper trees, and sodapop skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
“This drink is incredibly dry!”
Velocity’s Summer Drink Series soldiers on with, “For Sale: Gin Mojitos, never warm.” by Creative Director, Karla Burr. Wallpaper of the Week for June 24. It’s reminiscent of the time Earnest Hemingway toured the Caribbean with the Beatles — which we’re fairly certain should have happened, but might not have.
Happy patio-ing! -JB
Since the beginning of time, mankind has enjoyed two things: delicious adult beverages and quality desktop images. At last, these wonderful staples of civilization, once thought impossible to combine, have been artfully merged into an easy to enjoy package by Velocity Designer and All-around Nice Lady, Colette Boisvert. Wallpaper of the Week for June 17, ¡Sangria de la Velocidad!, continues our Summer Drink Series – a blissful treat for thirsty wallpaperphiles.
We’re kicking it up a notch with the Wallpaper of the Week for June 9, BLAM!, by Velocity Web Nerd and Board-Certified Alconinja, Lee Froese. Velocity has always strived to provide our clients and fans with aesthetic excellence, as well as excellent beverages. This clean and elegant design combines the best of desktopian imageness with summerful deliciosity.
See you at Gary’s Old Towne Tavern this weekend. Cheers! -JB
Wallpaper of the Week for June 3, Ce n’est pas un Papier Peint, by Velocity President Chris Clarke, falls into the category of Readymade or Found Art, in the manner of French Dadaist/Surrealist Marcel Duchamp. A hotel light switch from Salzburg is tilted 90-degrees and “branded” with the Velocity wordmark. The title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to René Magritte’s 1928 masterpiece, “The Treachery of Images.”
Have a surreal weekend. -JB
Cocoon was invited to lead a workshop as part of the Canadian Sponsorship Forum, held in Montreal on June 10-12, 2011. During the workship entitled “Stop Thinking with Half a Brain: Rediscover Your Creative Side”, Kyle and Chuck discussed the role of creativity, then led exercises to help delegates tap into their creativity.
“Kyle & Chuck were a big hit at our 2011 Canadian Sponsorship Forum. Their session on CREATIVITY was imaginative, inspiring, and informing. In short it was “creative”. They used simple, yet powerful techniques to engage a senior audience and turn them into eager learning students. Almost childlike. Their approach was a breath of fresh air from typical conference breakouts and gave our conference an energizing jolt!”
