The directorial debut of partners, Jenna Josepher and Ege Soyuer, Hoop Nose Ring is a study of interaction between color, gestural animation, and the human body. This no-budget passion project was only possible because of the incredible, grassroots, mostly-female production crew and cast—an offbeat and diverse bunch of badass, open-minded collaborators from the NYC creative community. We hope the future of music video culture embraces what Hoop Nose Ring is all about; free creative agency, playfulness, self-validation, and media produced in free, supportive spaces.
As the illustrious pop-song on his debut album, BLACKWATCHSAD, Hoop Nose Ring is a love letter from one man, GETOVERHER (AKA Jason Scott Henderson,) to the diverse rainbow of women in his hometown of NYC, with the understanding that the future is female.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge coastal plain is the biological heart of the refuge, supporting millions of migratory birds and hundreds of thousands of caribou, as well as wolves, grizzly bears, musk oxen, and polar bears. Yet this unparalleled 1.5-million-acre habitat has not yet received permanent protection, leaving it vulnerable to harmful oil and gas development. Well-known author, artist, and bird-watcher David Sibley explores why this incredible landscape needs your help in order to gain the complete protection it deserves.
This talk took place on June 13, 2015 in The Great Hall at The Cooper Union as part of Typographics.
There’s been much said about the art of creating typographic systems, but few advocate for the value of multi-typeface systems. Bethany will discuss the advantages typographic diversity can bring to design, challenge commonly-held beliefs about typeface selection, reveal techniques for pairing typefaces, and how to get the most informational hierarchy out of your content, giving you more opportunities to create rich and diverse visual languages through type.
Bethany Heck is a designer and the Creative Lead for Microsoft Power BI and the creator of the Eephus League brand of baseball scorebooks. She strives to create powerful visual experiences with strong typographic elements regardless of medium, and her work spans traditional printing techniques to responsive web design and mobile application work. She’s worked with the likes of IBM, EA Sports, ESPN, Bridgestone Tires and more, and her work has appeared in New York Magazine, the New Yorker, Wired, Smashing Magazine, Uppercase Magazine and several other international publications and art exhibitions.
