        Since 2008, AIGA Colorado’s Bordo Bello has been breathing life into the Denver arts community and supporting mentorship programming. Through this skateboard art show, we have seen over 1000 artists show their work in celebration of the Colorado lifestyle – the connection of work, life & fun. This year we took it to New York at the AIGA National Center. Bordo Bello approached us to build a monstrous (pun intended) light box for the window display and we jumped at that opportunity. The result was phenomenal. This is the making of the piece we call - Rise and Skate. Size: 6ft x 6ft backlit wooden box Medium - Mohawk fine paper

              I was sent this blank skateboard deck by the good people of AIGA Colorado. Having never ridden a skateboard, I decided to turn the deck into something I am very familiar with, a RAINBOW! Be on the lookout for a little Magic! You can probably tell my favorite show growing up was Sesame Street. You can probably also tell I'm a huge dork. Learn more about the art show fundraiser Bordo Bello at http://www.bordobello.com/

                “Why not to secure your business,” was the copy from an Italian ad featuring a row of men holding their “business” which Matteo Bologna used as an example of what excellent copy writers Italians make. He left many in the audience feeling great about design, giving off the impression that design is fun. Have fun with your job, embrace your clients, even if they are difficult, and do not laugh at yourself a little. Bologna is the founder and President of New York-based Mucca Design Corporation, where he also serves as Creative Director. Born and raised in Milan, Italy, Matteo’s grounding in architecture, graphic design, illustration and typography facilitated his early business successes and inspired his decision to create a New York agency. He is funny, witty and doesn’t make making fun of himself. Bologna joined Denver’s creative’s on May 5, 2010 on behalf of AIGA Colorado’s taste Design Tastes, a 3-part AIGA Colorado programming series exploring the intersection of food and design through the commonalities of approach and style among designers Louise Fili, Louis Gagnon, and Matteo Bologna.

                  Louis Gagnon founded the Montreal-based design firm Paprika in 1991. By handling space with virtuoso minimalism, Paprika anticipates but never follows fashions or trends. Whether it’s signage for a restaurant or hotel, a visual identity for an upscale chocolatier, or the design of a product catalogue, Paprika always manages to use refined good taste to achieve a precise balance between strategy and intuition. This unique style has been widely recognized in Quebec, Canada and beyond with over 400 national and international awards. To see samples of Louis Gagnon's work, visit paprika.com.
