Check out our newest logo design for this arts organization on the move!

Tonight, we are delighted to announce the name of our new organization…

Constellation Stage & Screen

Over the past few months, our company worked with San Francisco-based naming consultant Marc Weidenbaum to cultivate our new identity. Drawing from the very origin of storytelling, our new name, Constellation, focuses on connecting audiences to world-class film and theater. It even has a nod to the Indiana state flag!

Our stunning new logo was created by Sidekick Creative!

We can’t wait to start this new venture with Bloomington Playwrights Project and Bloomington Academy of Film & Theatre on July 1, 2022. Stay tuned for our season announcement, coming your way tomorrow!

This special logo project has been in the works for a few months and we are so excited to finally share. The Ella L Jordan African American History Museum in Pensacola is one of less than 10 museums in the United States that is focused on African American Women's history. Citizens of Pensacola stepped up to save this historical landmark and turn it into a museum and meeting space that will not only serve and educate the community for years to come but honors the political, social and economic contributions of African American women throughout history.

Lake Placid 2023 FISU Games

So excited to finally reveal this unbelievable project we’ve been working on for the past year! The Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games will be taking New York State and the Adirondacks by storm in January 2023 and we can’t wait!

This event is all about the celebration of athletic competition, winter sports excellence, diversity, unity, and sustainability. In designing the brand, we wanted to capture a spirit of celebration and highlight our area, so we can show the world, "How New York Does Winter". Central to the logo design is the human form, representing the spectacular collegiate athletes, the welcoming spirit of New York State, and the celebration of diversity. The sun and expressive lines around the form symbolize the natural elements and our inextricable connection to the environment, as well as the Games' dedication to sustainability. The mountain shape represents the Adirondacks and our stunning landscape, while also creating an upward arrow—a nod to the New York State motto, “Excelsior”, or “Ever Upward”.

If you are thinking of starting your own business you have to sign up for the StartUp ADK course at SUNY Adirondack! We wouldn't be where we are today without the knowledge we gained and the connections we made during that course!

When Will Fowler and Cara Greenslade attended SUNY Adirondack's StartUp ADK, they didn't have a plan to start a business.

"It was a good opportunity to think about the next step in our careers, but we didn't have the idea of launching Sidekick," said Fowler, partner and creative director of Sidekick Creative.

He was attending the course at his mother-in-law's suggestion and Greenslade, his co-worker at a regional design firm at the time, was writing an expansion plan for their employer.

"It kind of sparked our imagination and had us thinking, 'We could probably do this for ourselves,'" Fowler said. "It was the spark that lit the fire underneath us."

"StartUp ADK taught us some soft skills, but also gave us ready-to-go tools we're still using today."

This course is so different: You're not sitting there taking notes," Greenslade said. "There's a new person every class teaching and giving you advice on starting a business."

The variety of presenters gives attendees a broad range of knowledge. "The course covers so many different topics, which is important because you don't know to think about all the different facets of starting a business," Fowler said. "It exposes you to everything you need to know.

"Being able to jump into a network of people from the get-go, all these professionals we met throughout the course," Fowler said, "we went from knowing no one to knowing all these businesses and services."

In the time since the course, Fowler and Greenslade also partnered with Kelli Germain to create Sidekick Creative: an in-demand graphic design agency in downtown Glens Falls.

Does most of the design work for Creative KickStart weekend happen during Creative KickStart weekend? Yes. Are we confident enough in our brains that after a fast-paced, long and crazy weekend that all of the work has been properly proofed and is ready to go live or be printed? Hard no. So we’re FINALLY super excited to announce the launch of the Glens Falls Area Youth Center now that we have made sure it has been proofed and accessibility tested!
