THIS MONTH'S THEME: SAY THANKS

November is usually the month when we say thanks to those in our lives that have helped us throughout the year. We'd like to thank you guys for following us along since the beginning and for supporting us as we grow this community.

That being said, we're excited to be featuring a very talented member of our community; Chicago photographer and content creator Dennis Elliott. We love the cinematic feel of each of Dennis' photos and his use of color really sets his work apart. Follow Dennis on Instagram at @ddesigns to give your feed a refresh, and give your device a refresh by downloading the free background above.

Paired with Dennis' photo, our curated playlist this month is filled with new songs that have a classic feel, featuring our very own Jonny Mendez. Listen here at DesignersMX.

October, the gateway to fall. Days get shorter, nights get chillier, and everyone starts breaking out those fall layers. Ushering us into the colder months is Jesus Corral.

Pick out the size above that best fits your needs and start thinking warm thoughts.

THIS MONTH'S THEME: NO FRILLS JUST CHILLS

September is a month to wind down. Summer begins to chill out, and everyone starts getting back into the swing of things. To help with this transition, we're bringing you this very chill backgound designed by our very talented friend Mackenzie Freemire (@mackenziediane). Mackenzie's use of the mundane reminds us that art is everywhere, and the recurring appearance of eggs in her work reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously. Pick out the size above that best fits your needs and give your devices the refresh they deserve.

Paired with Mackenzie's design this month, our curated playlist features a mix of creative covers that we're digging. Listen here at DesignersMX (an awesome site that pairs good design with good music).   

SUMMER SNAP OFF RECAP

Evan Sheehan

This past Saturday was awesome. To those of you who missed it, Artifact Uprising and Moment teamed up with us to put on our first ever Snap Off! Over 125 Chicago creatives came together for Bang Bang Pie, Intelligentsia cold brew, and most importantly, to take show off the amazing creative talent in this city. Everyone was given a beach ball, and the race was on to go take photos with them all over the city.

We were blown away by everyone's submissions. Congrats to our first ever Snap Off champion, David Astudillo (@davidfilm80) for his shot in Millenium Park, and to our runners up, Mackenzie Freemire (@mackenziediane), Craig Hensel (@thecraighensel), and Michelle Oben (@michelle_oben). Their winning photos are below, along with some more of our favorites!

Stay tuned for our next Snap Off, and make sure to check out our other events.

THIS MONTH'S THEME: LAST CALL FOR SUMMER

It's August, and we know everyone is trying to cram in all their last minute Summer trips before things cool down. We're here for you during this time of seasonal procrastination, and we're proud to be featuring art from Irina Kruglova (@monscribbles) in this month's RE:FRESH. Irina's use of color and shape is bold and vibrant, and fits perfectly with the Summer Vibes we've put together for you in this month's playlist.

SNAP OFF with Artifact Uprising + Moment Lens

Evan Sheehan

We're teaming up with Artifact Uprising + Moment Lens to bring you our first ever LOW RES SNAP OFF

WHAT'S A SNAP OFF?

We’re inviting all Chicago photographers to create a unique piece of content with a secret prop chosen by our team. Think of this as the ultimate practice to working with a client. Creativity is a muscle...so, the more we practice, experiment, and challenge ourselves, the better we become. We'll give you the parameters and you create something unique that speaks to your aesthetic. At the end of the set time to go out & explore, we'll group everyone back together to vote for their favorite photos.

The photographers with the Top 3 Photos will receive prizes provided by Artifact Uprising & Moment, plus we'll share our personal favorites on this site. 

WHEN IS IT?

> Saturday, August 13th at 11:00 A.M.

Come hear a talk from Nathan Michael about "Owning Your Own Perspective in a Sea of Artists."

From there, you'll have the chance to flex your creativity while checking out some of the Moment Lenses. Afterward, we'll come back to Low Res Studio to celebrate everyone's creativity. 

Sign up to secure your spot today. Don't forget to invite a friend!
