(1) State of the RE:Union Jacksonville Edition

State of the RE:Union Jacksonville Edition


Al Letson’s State of the RE:Union blog for Jacksonville launched earlier this month. It kicked off with interviews of Tony Allegretti, Burro Bags and The Urban Facelift Project from Content Design Group. Not a bad start if you ask me.

Notable Features: Tweets from State of the RE:Union, music tracks from local artists, “docu-shorts” and the awesome promo trailer produced by Jacksonville’s own Dripsblack.

AIGA Jacksonville Blog


AIGA Jacksonville just launched it blog and I anticipate good things form them. AIGA is the professional association for design in Jacksonville and they say the blog is “a cool little place to capture little design nuggets”.

I had a meeting today with incoming president Varick Rosete to talk about future Urban Jacksonville / AIGA collabos. You can catch the most recent tonight. It’s called Lighboxing and two designers go head-to-head while the design battle is projected on the wall, live for all to see.

Notable Features: None at this point besides great design and information about where to find it in the city.

And this just in! Thursday’s event will have color commentary from @thecrobar / @theurbansouth duo-U dont want 2 miss this!

Here are videos of the two opponents

(6) Jax Stylefile

Jax Stylefile Blog


This is one of the more intriguing new blogs. I can’t wait to see their second post. C’mon ya’ll. Get on it! Here’s how they describe Jax Stylefile:

You may not own a lot in life but you will always have your style. It’s yours. Don’t listen to others. Do what you like. Do what excites you. Embrace that it’s fun to dress up. Be your own stylist. Be inspired but never imitate. Stay true to your soul and let art hang on your limbs. Show the world what’s going on in our culture. It’s all up to you.

Jacksonville is full of interesting and stylish people and we want to capture that for the all the interwebs to see! Now go put on a cute outfit and we will see you on the streets…
