On The Road Again

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Tillamook recently kicked off its third consecutive Loaf Love Tour. Touring the country in custom, bright orange VW buses, Tillamook is on a mission to bring “Tasty Cheese to the People!” and this year Hello brought this experience to life online. Here visitors can view the schedule, see photos with fans and the latest news from the Loaf Love Tour. Hello also created a new iPad app to streamline the event experience. The app allows brand ambassadors on tour to quickly take photos and capture email sign-ups. The photos appear on the site in real time and fans can socially share the loaf love with friends and family everywhere. Find out if the Loaf Love Tour is stopping in your neighborhood!

“Eames Words”

Eames Words

Friends of Hello at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles recently installed “Eames Words,” an exhibition where the ideas of Charles and Ray Eames triumph their better-known creations.

Part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time, the show pays homage to the design duo’s appreciation of humble objects through an “informal assemblage” of quotes, phrases and actual items, like the Jeep.

Much of the inspiration behind the couple’s designs came from the everyday, which is no better represented in Charles’ timeless phrase, “The uncommon beauty of common things.” The Eameses taught us to celebrate life’s simple pleasures and that design only further enhances this philosophy.

“Living in a Modern Way” at the LACMA

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

We’re excited to see the work of two of our clients, Herman Miller and the LACMA, come together at the California Design, 1930–1965: “Living in a Modern Way” exhibition. The exhibition is the first major study on California mid-century modern design that includes a relocated Eames House Living Room that brings over 425 pieces designed by Charles and Ray Eames to life. The exhibition is a treasure trove of seminal design masterpieces with an entire display of every style Eames chair from 1939 to 1998. Watch a video on how they packed up all the Eames designs here.

The exhibition is open now until March 25th and is a must-see for all mid-century modern design lovers.
