With the winter Olympics currently underway and recent record amounts of snowfall, you might find yourself inspired to take to the slopes this year. Thanks to a local company, your experience at Cincinnati’s closest ski resort is now more informative and accessible for ski experts and novices alike.
Electronic Art, an interactive agency specializing in touch screen kiosks, digital signage and integrated websites, recently integrated digital signage hardware and screen management software at Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
As I watched the Olympics come to a close I realized just how much I would miss them. No more swimming, track or women’s sand volleyball. Lucky for me a design blog featured a post that shows the logo and branding for every Summer Olympics from 1896 to 2012. Needless to say my inner design nerd was quite pleased. My personal favorites are: 1912 Stockholm, 1936 Berlin, 1956 Melbourne, 1960 Rome & 1972 Munich.
One-week into the ‘Stache-Off ’08, and I’m already jealous of all the stachetastic fun the guys are having! *sigh* My sad string cheese faux-stache aside, the GOOD news is: we have competition progress for you! We decided to give the ‘Stache-Off its own events page, so you can easily keep track of your favorite stacheletes. Just in time to help you celebrate the kick-off of the Beijing Summer Games, we bring you the Official Electronic Art ‘Stache-Off ’08 Event Page.
“When I went to the Olympics, I had every intention of shaving the mustache off, but I realized I was getting so many comments about it – and everybody was talking about it – that I decided to keep it. “ – Mark Spitz
According to the AMI (American Mustache Institute), the folks at Electronic Art aren’t the only ones celebrating the Beijing Games with facial hair : http://tinyurl.com/5u6k72

Here at Electronic Art, we’re a socially-aware bunch. And just to prove it, we’re supporting the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a little competition of our own – the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ‘08. On August 1st, the handsome men of Electronic Art will shorn themselves back to a natural, moustache-free state and let the growing begin (Guy Dillon has been granted exception in the shaving by the staff as he already has an admirable and stately mustache the likes of which should not be messed with). Each contestant will then grow his (or her? Uhhh … ) facial hair for a duration of 24 consecutive days. No Rogaine, Monoxidil or other hair growth supplements allowed. Random screening for such chemical enhancers will be performed throughout the competition and ‘dopers’ will be disqualified. Judging will be held on August 25th and winners announced by COB on that day. Photographs of the competition will be shared right here on our blog – don’t miss out. Postings will include pre-competition shots as well as interim progress shots and of course, the final judging shots. Winners of the following categories will be announced: change in appearance, style, presentation at judging, and of course the overall best moustache category. If you would like to participate in the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ’08, feel free to submit pre-competition and judging photos for consideration.
