We want this magazine to be different from anything out there. More interactive. More inspirational. A magazine where there is a mutual exchange of ideas between the magazine and our readers.
Our search runs the gamut from advertising to architecture, fashion, sculpture, jewelry—things that interest us as artists and designers. We ask important artists, photographers and designers to share their work with us. And lastly we showcase the work of emerging artists and designers as well as the practicing professional in our quarterly competitions.
Our hope is by representing both the next generation and those currently working in the marketplace there will be a sharing of ideas. Ideas that spawn new ideas.
Join us in building a new creative community where we share and grow together.

Works carried out by students usually disappear into drawers after presentation to a relatively small college audience. There the work remains invisible. The Output International Student Award wants to change that.
Any work, which has been produced as a student project, is eligible for submission. The work may not be older than one year. The project does not have to be published. Work related to any area of design and architecture, such as: graphic design / architecture / product design / typography / photography / illustration / typeface design / multimedia, moving image and television graphics / experience design is eligible for submission.
The :output award is organized by the :output foundation - a non-profit organization based in Amsterdam. The goal of the :output foundation is to foster new talents in design and architecture, and to initiate innovation projects by connecting the fields of education, business, politics and culture.

Professor of Art Leigh Merrill in the Studio Gallery 2.12—3.5.2014.
A reception for the artist is February 22, 4 — 6.
Leigh Merrill constructs photographs of the urban landscape positioned between reality and fantasy. Digitally reassembled from photographs of the quotidian structures or urban life, the constructed character of the photographs reiterated the constructed, fragmentary built environment. Leigh Merrill received the B.F.A. from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM and the M.F.A. from Mills College. Merrill’s work has been a part of exhibitions throughout the United States including the Phoenix Art Museum, the diRosa Art Preserve, The Lawndale Art Center, Women and Their Work Gallery, the Tremaine Gallery, and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. Merrill was a part of the 2011 Fotographia Festival Internazionale di Roma at the Galleria Gallerati in Rome, Italy. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, the City of Phoenix, the California Institute of Integral Studies and private collections.
