We did a poster for Guns N’ Roses!!

Like many kids of the 80’s, we here at Powerhouse not only grew up listening to, but also idolizing Guns N’ Roses and all of their colorful members. I mean, that shit rocks. And so when we heard that the “Not In This Lifetime” tour was really happening and that GN’R was going out on the road, we were stoked and wanted to find a way to work with them…

PHF University: Lessons in Screen Printing

By | Design, Powerhouse Print Shop | No Comments

When Mark Thomas, Associate Dean at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, approached us about leading a student workshop with his printmaking class, founders Ben Nunery and Pat Jones didn’t hesitate to get things started. Mark was a big fan of our gig posters, and thought it might give his students a new perspective on creative design. Powerhouse Factories University (PHF-U) was officially born.

Since its founding seven years ago, this 2-to-3-week program is now a part of printmaking classes at the Art Academy and other area schools. It presents students with an opportunity to broaden their skill set and take on memorable, real-world projects. Read More

Hey What’s Good In? — a website and self-proclaimed resource guide for “creative people who want to learn about and contribute to good things in their city” — recently debuted their guide for Cincinnati. The site compiled a list of the raddest local non-profits, organizations, meet up opportunities, workspaces, media outlets and creative studios — and we made the cut! We found ourselves in good company with Neltner Small Batch, BLDG and TommyInk, among many other kick-ass creative houses here in the Queen City. Check out the full list over at HWGI? here.
