March 22nd was International Goof-Off Day
Monica A. Dufour and A.C. Vierow declared March 22 as a day for good-humored fun and silliness. But, you say, Goof-Off Day was yesterday. So it was. But we were observing the true spirit of the day and Goofing-Off, and so did not post. We suppose it is never to late to get in the spirit of things. So go on, Goof-Off today and enjoy!

Minneapolis, let’s MIX it up!

We at This Is Folly take our Minneapolis pride pretty darn seriously. Minneapolis is a creativity Mecca blessed with a get-it-done spirit that’s balanced with a crisp, refreshing dose of Northern practicality. We’re ripe for an idea festival à la Aspen Ideas Festival or Chicago Ideas Week. So, imagine our pleasure at being asked to design the brand for MIX, which was unveiled last week at the Minneapolis Downtown Council. 


Want to get in the MIX? Check out the website and sign up. The team is working out the details for a 2014 preview and a 2015 festival launch.

Setting the scene

We added a dash of pageantry to Target’s Market Pantry for the holidays with new seasonal packaging. With a wink and a nod, Market Pantry every day packaging is transformed into a holiday stage set festooned with prop-like seasonal illustrations. Created with the folks at Target InHouse and with delightful illustrations from Eight Hour Day, the new packaging will add some holly jolly to your holiday.

(R)Evolution in Design

Holly recently traveled to Winston-Salem for an event at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Arts (SECCA) in conjunction with opening week of the traveling Walker Art Center Graphic Design: Now in Production show. She gave a keynote talk on the role of design and culture in sustainability called “(R)Evolution in Design” following an awards presentation for excellence by The Sustainability Resource Center to local businesses and organizations. Lively and insightful discussions followed both the speech and the intimate round table held in the SECCA the following day. Thanks to all the great folk at SECCA who made Holly’s visit to the area so enjoyable and to all those who attended the events with such enthusiasm, passion and interest.
