When we hear songs from our youth, we are instantly transported to the past. The music we listened to still holds a disproportionate amount of power over our emotions, so the nostalgia is hard to fight. This week, Pivoteers share some of their favorite music from the "days of yore."
It didn’t take long for Dawn and Jonathan—Pivot’s newest team members—to become a portmanteau. Affectionately known as “Dawnathan” to fellow Pivoteers, Dawn joins the team as a writer, and Jonathan as a strategist. Recently, “Dawnathan” sat down to discuss their favorite social media network—Instagram—and the effect it has on Indy’s creative community.
There comes a time in every designer’s life when an opportunity arises that will change the world forever; friends, family, even competitors look to you with wide eyes, nodding approvingly. “You got this,” their expressions say. And your next move will determine the fate of life as we know it.
With a history pre-dating Western Civilization, you’d think tattoos would have had an easy walk into modern culture. Not the case. People with tattoos have been discriminated against since permanent ink was introduced into mainstream society—especially in the workplace.
Scott Stulen is changing the way people view art in Indianapolis. The Curator of Audience Experiences and Performance is bringing more interaction to the IMA through new events and activities. I sat down with Scott to discuss how the IMA is changing and what is on the horizon for the museum.

I’m sitting in the chalkboard-colored office of Bayonet Media with Andrew Quinn, Co-Founder and Story Director, joined by Producer, Kevin Grazioli. We’re knee-deep in an intense discussion about typefaces, fonts, the difference between the two, and how today’s designers are influenced by yesterday’s press-monkeys. “You couldn’t really have graphic design today without the letterpress,” Andrew says.
As we enter the season of blue skies and longer days, we find ourselves eager to hit the road and explore new places for a few days. From museums in big cities to tucked away caverns, here are some of the Pivoteers' favorite places that make for perfect road trips.
When Christopher first moved to Indy, the city had only two miles of bike lanes striped along 52nd Street. And almost every time he was out riding, someone yelled at him to get on the sidewalks or…other more colorful phrases.
