Blog Pick :: COLOSSAL
Re-blog by: By Steve Marcelin, BArch Candidate
Founded in 2010, Colossal is a Chicago based blog that focuses on art, crafts, design, and visual culture. Their goal is to give artists and designers a place where they can introduce their work to the public. The blog is divided into four categories-- art, design, photography, and video.

What makes this post and many other posts on Colossal extraordinary is the fact that we get to see the process work or in some cases get to read a quote from the maker. This approach make me feel more connected to the design, and allows me to effectively understand the messages that the art or design is trying to convey.
