Colour Stories

On Friday, Nov. 22, the 4th annual “Colour Stories” design show, put on by design students at Cleveland State University took place at the Middaugh Building from 6-9 p.m. It was in conjunction with the Cleveland State branch of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA).

Posters were made to display what colors mean to each individual artist and were part of a larger campaign. The images on the right with the light bulbs with the brains in them were made as part of a campaign to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, for example.
According to Gia Paulovich, a Cleveland State design student and one of the event’s hosts, the event was there to showcase the work that the students did throughout the semester.

Bystanders had a chance to review the students’ work and help themselves to snacks.

“We have several different projects out from the beginning of the design curriculum to the end,” Paulovich said.

Some students created toys with gender-neutral packaging.

“Some people created toys, some people made websites, some made packaging web-ads, some created gender-neutral toy packaging, which was super fun,” Paulovich said. “We had to explore, ‘What does gender-neutral mean?’”

For their projects, students had to come up with a company, what it does, name it and completely brand it. The project above, Lauren Reed’s “Early Bird,” was for a coffee company that Reed created.

HOW ARE WE NOT ON HARD KNOCKS EVERY YEAR: If you don't think the last 18 hours don't represent everything that the Browns choose to be, then I really don't know what to tell you. Is there a more comically inept franchise in the history of sports? Where else do these stories happen?  Linebackers arrested for insider trading, receivers with more talent than God that can't lay off drugs meant for college freshmen, OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLIN OFF!  Hard Knocks needs to have the Browns on speedial the way Leonardo DiCaprio has 19 year old models on his. Josh Gordon is like George Costanza when he tried to get fired from the Yankees, dragging the World Series trophy in the parking lot and spilling spaghetti sauce all over a vintage Babe Ruth jersey.  Over the past few years, I'm convinced Gordon could've walked right into the general manager's office, shit directly onto his desk, and they would've retaliated by... firing the head coach.  "Let'

The Sashi Wars

Who gets credit for the recent (semi) success of the Cleveland Browns?  It's a radio topic more common than, "Whose better, MJ or LeBron?" at least in the Cleveland area.  You're either pro Sashi or anti-Sashi, with nothing in between.  Here, I have compiled a list of all the major events that took place at the time that Sashi held the general manager position of the Browns.  He occupied the position from January 3, 2016, to December 7, 2017. I did not count the hire of head coach Hue Jackson, as that was the choice of Jimmy and Dee Haslam, which is I know, shocking, given their track record. Here are the notable moves Sashi Brown made as Cleveland Browns GM: 2016 FREE AGENCY Notable Additions: Terrelle Pryor:  Technically, the Browns had Pryor in 2015, but he was waived before later being re-signed at the end of the season.  But this class had no major additions, so I had to put something  here.  Sashi was tearing this thing down to the studs, and if we'
