Updated throughout the day, UnBeige dishes out the news, gossip, events, parties, personalities, commentary, and humor that keeps design professionals informed and entertained. The New York Times featured UnBeige in its September 2008 article on shopping with design bloggers, describing us as “a Gawker for those who are as comfortable discussing Charles Gwathmey’s addition to the Art and Architecture Building at Yale as they are discussing Metallica album covers.” In 2006, UnBeige was named one of 12 sites that “define cool” by Newsweek and one of 50 Essential Bookmarks by Communication Arts. The blog is owned and operated by mediabistro.com.
By day, Steve Delahoyde works at the ad agency/design firm, Coudal Partners, where, like everyone else there, he’s sort of a jack-of-all-trades. Primarily, he’s the one that handles the writing for the firm, as well as the production work, from TV spots to Internet foolery. Steve entered the business by making far too many silly short films along with his cohort, Wakiza Gamez. Following that, largely by accident, he became a freelance editor, director and motion graphics designer. His production work has appeared everywhere from MTV to CBS to The National Lampoon Network, and his writing has popped up here and there, from Time Out to McSweeney’s.
