SON OF A SAILOR // PARTNERS: Citygram

hey y’all! i want to share a project that is happening right now that i think is important for the austin creative environment. take a second to check out Citygram, a new publication that i am super excited about and think is important to support!



their kickstarter project is going on RIGHT NOW and is worth your consideration! let’s make this happen!

there are so many creative forces behind this online publication, and i am convinced it is going to be a fresh and innovative voice for the Austin cultural scene. seriously, look who’s involved…

Chris Perez as a writer for Apartment Therapy, he decided he needed to learn how to take better photographs. what he did is become kind of a badass… he has photographed a friend’s wedding and, recently, our studio for Madesmith (which you can see next week!) and he is apparently a natural. a self-taught natural. with his own interests catalogued on his own website, MetropoChris, it’s clear that he has his finger on the pulse of modern day living in all of it’s facets. what better person than Chris to start a pretty epic digital guide to one of the fairest cities in the nation?

I got to test drive the publication on Chris’ iPad last time he was in the studio. It is so much fun! With innovative navigation making browsing the content-rich issue fun and interactive, I was stunned at how much I wanted to read each of the in-depth and we’ll illustrated articles. I can’t wait to get my hands on the first issue.

I’ve already contributed. If I can, I’ll contribute more! I really want to see this thing get funded so that it gets the proper momentum. I know that with the right tools, Citygram will be an indispensable source for Austin information.

Come on, y’all, give ‘em some money!
