Mad Mike – Undefeated Poster Release

Posted in Uncategorized by BLDG on June 25, 2013

As most people close to BLDG are aware of by now, our partner Mike Amann has been fighting a vicious neuroendocrine cancer for the past few months. A number of people have asked us how they can help with Mike’s battle, so we’ve created an avenue for everyone to contribute.

We’ve created a short video of Mike’s battle and an accompanying screen print you can purchase for $25 at bldgrefuge.com/madmike. 100% of all purchases will go directly to the Amann family for travel and medical expenses.

Show Mike your support by buying a poster and sharing this post and video with all your friends.

Go Mike!

Covington Food Truck Invasions

Posted in Uncategorized by BLDG on November 1, 2012

BLDG and the City of Covington has been working to find ways to create highly desirable urban experiences for the workers and residents of the city. The result was our first activation with the City of Covington, Food Truck Invasions.

The initial goal for the City of Covington was to create a high-impact event that would create a change in the perception for the city. The goal for BLDG was to present the city as a prime destination for art, culture and entertainment. Prior events and activities in the city were done primarily by individual businesses with a very narrow focus.

This event marked the first time local food trucks were to set up for a weekday lunch within the city limits of Covington. Prior city ordinances, along with certain antiquated health department regulations, had prevented the trucks from doing business in the city. In order for BLDG to bring these events to fruition, the food trucks had to be education on the merits and opportunity that Covington presented for them.

BLDG chose to create an event that would draw both local urban professionals and attract a younger urban demographic. Concert-style screen printed posters and social networking were employed to give the event a grass roots character. What resulted was an overwhelming level of participation by urban workers, Covington city residents, and young urban professionals. An unexpected result was a large draw of young suburban families.

The end result was not only well received, but also highly repeatable.

BLDG the Nth

Posted in Uncategorized by BLDG on October 31, 2012

The hand prints on our storefront windows are a testament to the inconspicuous nature of BLDG. In the 10 years we’ve been embedded in Covington the reoccurring question has always been, “What do you guys do in there?”. Well here ya go, our masks are off and our door is open. This is a little slice of life we call BLDG…enjoy!

It’s no secret we love design. It’s also no secret we choose to work with clients we find particularly interesting. When tasked to brand a bourbon distillery, to say it was a match made in heaven is an understatement. We took the bourbon by the horns and totally immersed ourselves in the process. Many late nights and a few headaches later, the Nth was born. The Nth is a juxtaposition of contemporary and traditional culture influenced by it’s unique locale, the Northern most tip of Kentucky. The result, a brand pushing the boundaries of what is expected from a Kentucky born bourbon.

New Print From Hargo

Posted in Walls by BLDG on February 4, 2011

The BLDG is pleased to announce the second collaboration and print release with the street’s most famous Warhol appraiser, Hargo. The print titled “CFYW, 14th Street, Miami”, is based on one of several installations viewed by the art loving masses during Art Basel Miami. Hargo and The BLDG agreed that the legacy of this epic install should live far beyond the reaches of Basel and so history has been made.
