Collision Works

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

As bummed as we are to lose the occasional employee, it’s always nice to see former Saatchi New Yorkers that are doing something really awesome with their talents post-agency life. Such is the story brought to our attention yesterday by Claudine Cheever, who points us to former planner Shel Kimen’s Detroit-based project Collision Works.

One part hotel, one part co-working community and one part performance space, Shel’s role as founder and “captain” of the innovative motor city venture is something to definitely keep an eye on. Be sure to follow the above link to read all about what they’re aiming to do with the space, what inspiration their drawing from and what the project could mean for Detroit in the long run. Keep up the good work Shel!

Saatchi Sounds: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Rock and roll fans rejoice, the latest installment of The Saatchi Sound Series returns to the 15th floor today with a performance from Detroit indie rockers Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (yes, there are two “Jr’s” in their name). The duo will kick off their set at 12:30 in 15A, where we will rock out and eat free pizza and have a good time. We’ve embedded the video for their single “Simple Girl” above, but for even more Jr. Jr. fun, be sure to follow them on Twitter and check out their Facebook. See you at 12:30!
