  • Coupe Farts. Everyone Listens.

    Recently, Boulder’s Coupe Studios challenged Egotist readers to pose sound questions via Twitter in preparation for their new “Ideas. Amplified.” campaign from gyro’s Denver office. The crowd-sourcing initiative launches today (you'll see it over there on the right) and features original animated soundscapes by Coupe, animated visuals by gyro AD and resident doodle maestro, Rob Lewis, and questions submitted by Egotist readers. Writer Ricky Lambert and ECD Cameron Day pitched in on the concept, along with Coupe’s multi-faceted sound designers and composers. Credit for the twittered questions appear in each banner. Tweet your question today for consideration in future banners — the weirder, the better.

  • Overton Square Gets a New Logo for Its New Life

    / Comments (1)

    We at the Egotist are excited, and rightfully so, about the impending increase in awesomeness of Midtown's Overton Square. Along with Loeb Properties' projected $20 million investment to revive the arts and entertainment district are plans for a second location of Local, the relocation of Hattiloo Theater, and gourmet hotdog restaurant from Yolo's Taylor Berger.
    Overton Square's plans project the area to be more bike-friendly, more pedestrian-friendly, and all around an even greater asset to our city than it already is.

    Naturally, the Square needed a new logo. Enter Red Deluxe.
    Nice job, guys.
