Shout Out : Venkat Gaddam's Mysticized

1st June 2016

Talented artists always excite us. More so when the artist happens to be an old friend!

Featuring Venkat Gaddam's Mysticism, a site specific mural installation at 25 E 13th, New York inspired by the Kamasutra and various Hindu and Buddhist temples. Its a commentary on the change in the way sexuality is perceived in India - how from celebrating sensuality, India regressed to a sexist and homophobic society.

 

Its interesting how the artist reversed the purpose of a room - to enclose by using the walls as his medium, with the intention of opening up the space and conversation about sexuality, sensuality and celebration! The lack of dimensionality in the space also allows the viewers to immerse themselves completely.

 

Venkat also happens to be an avid blogger and you wont want to miss out on his updates! Follow him on tumbler and/or instagram!

Now on sale : Experience!

21st May 2016

When we were starting seem:less, we wanted a firm that celebrates unconventional ideas and values genuine people and one of the most important thing for us was to make good design affordable for everyone. While doing so we also wanted to offer interesting experiences for everyone who interacts with our designs. For us the experience a user has when in touch with our work is far more important than the design itself.

 

We have been thinking a lot about how to break away from the conventional process of quotes, invoices, and fees and make make our clients feel like they are talking with real people who genuinely care about them and will go to any lengths to help them achieve their goals. We hate bureaucratic procedures and fake smiles. We value genuine people and our relationship with them. We wanted this reflecting in all aspects of the firm. Transparent pricing system is one step towards being the kind of company we have always wanted to be - Transparent, Genuine and Unconventional.

 

Now the challenge was how to replace a tried and tested process with a new system that is congruent with the firm and its ideas. We wanted to sell experiences AND we wanted transparency. What better way to sell experiences than tickets right?! Using the idea of tickets, we came up with a new system that facilitates transparency while also creating an interesting experience for our clients. It is the first step in a long journey.

 

We are very excited to announce our new ticketing system! We are also working on integrating this into an online payment system which we hope will add to the seem:less experience.

 

Hurry get your tickets now!

BFA SHOW FEATURING KANIKA RANKA

2nd December 2015

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's BFA Show is here again and this time one of our first client, frequent collaborator, and a dear friend Kanika Ranka is showing her beautiful 9 x 35 feet curtains. 'Luminous 1' consists of four sheer curtains, each painstakingly hand painted with disperse dye and then heatpressed to achieve the translucent.

 

Her business cards and website were partly inspired by the colors and shapes she used within this piece. The business cards were in fact made using the base painting and process. Luminous was also featured on the invite sent out by the school announcing the exhibition.
