ADCH and HAF Social August 29th
ADCH members from across Houston converged on the bar at Arcodoros to
mix and mingle with members of HAF and the wide-eyed youngsters of Ad2
on Wednesday night, August 29th. All of your ADCH brass were there,
along with several past presidents and many current members. Grapparitas
and beer were flowing, business cards were flying, and some damn good
appetizers were consumed in what became a crowded and boisterous
atmosphere. Photos of the party can be found on the ADCH Gallery, where
none of the names have been changed, because no one is presumed

Houston was Quark's third city to visit in North America on their 2007
tour to promote Quark 7. The free event had a full attendance with a
crowd that was a mix of professional and student attendees. We'll make a
more detailed post that will include obversations on the presentations

ADCH at Domy All the fun of tag-team graffiti. None of the danger.
On May 24th, ADCH held a unique participatory event co-sponsored by Domy
Bookstore and Cafe Brasil. Attendees were invited to draw, write, hang out, drink and create a
communal work of art with designers, illustrators, artists, art
directors and writers from above and below ground.
Many individual works of art were created.
Collaborative pieces were also generated that night, one written and one drawn.
Both were inspired by the Surrealists and their exquisite corpse experiments.
To read the story written that night and to see sketches and event photos,
visit the ADCH blog.
At the end of the night the sketches and writings were unveiled and
people lined up to read the collaborative story and view the art.

How do you elevate a brand to an iconic status that transcends language barriers?
February 22, 2007
That's exactly what has happened with "V Dub." Fortunately, Jeff Steinhour - one of
the brains behind VW's wildly successful campaign - was in Houston to discuss the work the world is
talking (or signaling) about. If you witnessed the Houston appearance of his Crispin Porter + Bogusky
brethren, you know this was a must-see event.
