it is very exciting to be a part of it.
Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) October 20, 2009
Terralever, a leading interactive marketing firm, will open its doors to display the work of local artists and graphic designers as part of the inaugural Phoenix Design Week, Wednesday, Oct. 21 through Friday, Oct. 23 with a concluding reception Thursday night at 7 p.m.
Phoenix Design Week brings together artists, designers and business leaders in the Valley's creative community to showcase their talent and distinguish Phoenix as a major hub for design and creative culture.
The exhibit will feature PHX Layers, a competition among graphic designers where each designer has 30 minutes to add a layer to a digital design before passing it to the next competitor. More than 40 designers entered. The two finalists, Safwat Saleem and Jon Ashcroft, will display their work. Their designs will also be displayed online at phxlayers.com where viewers can vote for their favorite.
Interior designers Tammy LePham and Shirley Bucknor will display their work "Fritter," a paper sculpture or "pulpture." The work employs reused phonebooks and fishing wire to explore the idea of turning unwanted waste into something beautiful.
The display will also feature original works by local artists Tiphanie Brooke and Miro Chun.
"Not only is this an amazing way to bring the Phoenix community together but it is also an incredible way to celebrate local designers," said Chris Johnson, Managing Partner of Terralever, "it is very exciting to be a part of it."
All are welcome to view the exhibits at Terralever, 425 S. Mill Ave. 2nd floor, Tempe, Ariz., from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21 through Friday, Oct. 23. Guests are invited to attend the reception on Thursday, Oct. 22nd starting at 7 p.m. at Terralever as well.
Local businesses, Santy and Kitchen Sink Studios will also be showcasing Phoenix Design Week Exhibits this week.
