In the spirit of artistic collaboration, The Coop and Gapers Block teamed up to produce 8x8, an experiment in writing and design. Eight Chicagoland designers were paired with eight local writers to create collaborative works, with text informing and influencing art and vice versa. The results of this experiment are presented in limited edition poster form, with writing and design back to back.
Writers & Artist include: Patrick Somerville, Claire Zulkey, Ramsin Canon, Kevin Guilfoile, William Shunn, Veronica Bond, Wendy McClure, Scott Smith, Jesse Hora, Andy Luce, Chad Kouri, Ina Weise, Letterform, Ryan Sievert, Paul Octavious, Kyle Fletcher

Post Family does CreativeMornings
We're thrilled to announce that on March 30th, 9AM at The Coop we're going to be chatting as a group for the Chicago chapter of CreativeMornings about what we do as a family. If you haven't been it's a monthly morning gathering for creative types. Each event includes a 20 minute lecture, followed by a 20 minute group discussion.
The gathering begins at 8:30am and we start chatting at 9:00am. It's free of charge and it sells out typically in a couple minutes. So check out the site and prepare to signup March 26th at 11AM.
See you then!
If you are in town this Friday. Come to The Coop's Coworking Social!
This Friday, December 16, 2011 from 6:30 until 11pm or so.... We’re kicking off our fun, old-fashioned family holidays with a celebration to giving, coworking, eating and kissing under the mistletoe at The Coop!
Also, we’ll collect toys in the Uber sleigh; each guest bringing a toy will receive $10 worth of Uber credits to use whenever, wherever, with whoever. All toys will be donated through WGN’s Morning News Drive-Thru Toy Drive, benefiting Jennifer Hudson’s Julian D. King Gift Foundation. Hope to see you there!
Downtown at The Coop
With great pleasure The Coop presents "Downtown," the first show at our new space. The Coop offers Chicago's young artists — typically relegated to artist-run and other independent spaces — their time in the prestigious River North gallery district. The artists' work is affordable and accessible, celebrating the arts and culture of our city from all walks of life.
Featuring The Post Family's very own Alex Fuller, Rod Hunting, David Sieren and some of our friends Margot Harrington, Linsey Burritt, Crystal Grover, Mike McQuade, Jesse Hora, Delicious Design League, Andy Luce, Stephanie Bassos, Plural and friends.
