Say Hello!
We're interested in your interest in MESH + Makeshop
We take design research v seriously. Just a casual Friday night with MESH x THEATERWORKS collaboration, doing discovery “field research” at their gorgeous constellations production. They hired us to design a website but we’re thinking we may have a chance on stage with our girlbandlook? 🤞🤞🤞😬😬🤗 (j.k) #theaterworkshartford #constellations #designresearch #contemporaryrealism #weekendwarriors (thanks for bringing us in @livingenough 🖤)

#Repost @elainemsheldon Let’s brainstorm, you all. Keystone, WV, how can we help? This should not be happening in our modern West Virginia. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Hattie Avery is worried about tomorrow. The city of Keystone, W.Va. is so far behind on their power bills that if they can’t come up with $10,000 by Feb. 1, AEP has allegedly told the mayor they will be forced to shut off power to the city. With no power the city’s water facility the electric pump will shut down. Keystone residents have been under a boil advisory for 6 years and the water is not advised for drinking or cooking. On top of bad water, they barely have any water at all. Keystone experiences regular outages for weeks at a time. Hattie turned her water on today, during our visit, and it barely dribbled for 3 minutes before stopping. Keystone provided America with billions of dollars of coal and today they don’t even have reliable access to a basic necessity: water. #lookingatappalachia #wv #westvirginia #water #appalachia #hollerhome *UPDATE*: city council and mayor say that they are only operating 3 days a week to cut costs. Power is on for now - no clear solution moving forward. A motion was made to explore the potential of unincorporating the town, but with the debt it’s unclear if that’s even an option. Several residents who attended the meeting complained they haven’t had water for a whole month.
