The Be Nimble Foundation is building the national blueprint for diversity and inclusion in tech with an eye toward generational wealth for people of color. It’s a powerful vision in an economy–and co-founders Kelli Jones and Jeff Williams are making it happen here in Indianapolis. Jones joined us as a thought leader during the Creative Crossroads: Indiana Creative Economy Summit in October 2023. Williams lives in Dallas, and has been a bit harder for us to catch in person, so we took advantage of his All-Star 2024 travel plans to make this interview happen. I’ll let Williams take the lead ..read more

Fellowship Diary: A Love Letter to Indy
PATTERN Indy Magazine

Leah Brinkman, Graphic Design, Creative Fellow 2023 “This city is so boring.” “There’s nothing to do.” “All Indiana is, is cornfields.” Those are phrases I see often on subreddits about things to do in Indianapolis and even muttered by my own friends. And honestly, I’m guilty of saying those words too. When I was getting ready to graduate college I was convinced I was going to get the hell out of the Midwest (I grew up on Indy’s north side and went to college at the University of Cincinnati) and live abroad, move to some exciting city on the east or west coast, or even Chicago if I haaaaad ..read more

Intern Diary: A New Journey
PATTERN Indy Magazine

Cris Martinez interned with PATTERN as a graphic designer (Fall Semester ’23). The creative world is somewhere I’ve always wanted to reside. My passion for art began with drawing and my interests shifted to other mediums since. When it was time to make a decision for college, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the arts. After considering my options, I was led to graphic design–majoring in visual communication and design. My last year at Herron, IUPUI, required an internship, and as I scoured the internet for opportunities, I came across PATTERN. I began to research, and I was intrigued by ..read more

Maria Baer: Maximizing Minimalism
PATTERN Indy Magazine
by Jenny Walton
6M ago
This November, we’re exploring careers that most likely weren’t, aren’t, or won’t be listed as a potential college major–not specifically, anyway. Many of these folks have made their way to their current occupations by way of a more traditional nine-to-five, like our girl Maria Baer who is the queen of organized living and owner of The Baer Minimalist. Baer moved to Indianapolis in 2006 and spent about a decade in a variety of traditional professions. Ultimately, she landed in a sales role where, according to Baer, “The harder you worked, the more money you made and the more stressed you bec ..read more

Reflections on the Practice: Q+A with Artist Morgan Robinson-Gay
PATTERN Indy Magazine
by Caiden Cawthon

Twenty-five-year-old Morgan Robinson-Gay, has been at the forefront of Indiana’s performance and endurance art scene, as outlier and innovator, for the past three years. Educated at the Herron School of Art and Design, she hopes to be pursuing a Master’s in Fine Arts, which will likely see her leaving Indianapolis in the fall. Recently, however, I had the pleasure to sit down with the unconventional artist and discuss what it’s like to be trekking new ground in the Crossroads of America.
