My name is Lauren Buckley.
I'm the daughter of the daughter of a farmer's daughter. I was raised in Wisconsin. Educated in Minnesota. I seem to be on a never ending tour of the Midwest via clients and companies. Opinionated since 1983. Sarcastic since somewhere around there.


These are my diggings into the registry of design, op-ed, digital and diction related pieces that pique my imagination.

Nike Skateboarding | Air Jordan 1: Moving Mountain

Lance Mountain is the 2nd legend to add his eccentric touch to Nike SBs ongoing collaboration with Jordan on the AJ1.

"Just as skaters had always managed to repurpose the world around them — turning neglected pools into paradise, vast pipes into destinations for sessions and tackling anti-skate measures as part of a terrain to conquer — a basketball shoe became the skater’s choice."

Drawing direct inspiration from his formative skating years (1970s), Lance presents two block-painted pairs of the mismatched classic Bred, Black/Royal Blue AJ1s, that in time + wear reveal their true colours.

Release date: 7th June 2014

And that, as far as I’m concerned, is why millions are being spent to keep my fellow citizens ignorant.

Books don’t offer real escape, but they can stop a mind scratching itself raw.

Gorgeous and haunting photos.

tedx:

Photographer Timm Suess is passionate about capturing decay in our world. He travels to abandoned factories, clinics, and military installations to photograph the places people leave behind.

In a talk at TEDxGundeldingen, Suess details his Chernobyl Journal: a project that led him to the city of Pripyat, Ukraine, which was abandoned after the Chernobyl disaster.

Above, photos from the project, which documents places lost to the disaster.
