Carmichael Lynch looks handsome while donating to a great cause
April 25, 2013
Carmichael Lynch staffers were welcomed this morning to a fleet of smokin’ hot limited-edition ARTCRANK Shop Bikes. Available for use to all employees, these single-speed bikes double as a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief and were hand-built at the local Minneapolis bike shop, Handsome Cycles. ARTCRANK, a traveling gallery of bicycle-inspired poster artwork, teamed with the guys at Handsome Cycles and created the Shop Bike. For every bike sold, Handsome Cycles makes a donation in the name of the purchaser that will allow World Bicycle Relief to provide a complete bike to a community in Africa.
Carmichael Lynch finds it important to support the local arts and biking community. Now the agency can do both and on an international scale. Most recently, the agency created a poster for ARTCRANK’s 2013 Opening Night Party in Northeast Minneapolis titled ‘Safety First.’ Additionally the agency’s skunkworks project, the Carmichael Collective, let a Bike Matador loose on Minneapolis’ bustling biking community. Adding a little twist to traditional bull fighting, the matador challenged bikers instead of bulls.
A Day in Pompeii is a Webby Award Nominee and up for People’s Voice
April 10, 2013
Carmichael Lynch has perhaps the oldest Webby Nominee in this year's running, Pliny the Elder. Resurrected for our dayinpompeii.com website, Pliny provided a first-hand account of the destruction of Pompeii in 79 A.D. on the anniversary of the eruption. Through his live Twitter updates and an interactive map, people were able to follow his courageous journey and visit the same locations he did nearly 2,000 years ago.
Our social media campaign and website for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science’s exhibition was selected out of 11,000 entries submitted from more than 65 countries globally. We also received Webby Honorees for our agency’s philanthropic holiday site, Offset Your Naughty, and our Carmichael Collective film, A Roach Remembered, that pays tribute to fallen bugs that lived their lives to the fullest.
Voting is now open for The Webby People’s Voice Awards, please vote for our website under Cultural Institutions: A Day in Pompeii. Voting will close on April 25, 2013. The winners will be announced on April 30, 2013.

Transforming Urban Fabric to Art

Rusty, a 100-year-old landmark water tower, proudly sits on the roof of our agency. We have utilized this ubiquitous yet often ignored city element as a way to project public art to the community. This year we partnered with the Minneapolis College of Art and Design to create a new loop of mapping projections. These unique experiences of light and vision are now open for the public’s viewing pleasure.
