The Elmwood Village is a hallmark neighborhood in Buffalo, known for its historic and architectural character. On February 1, Assemblyman Sean M. Ryan unveiled an alternative proposal for development of the Elmwood Avenue and Forest Avenue intersection. Realtus Creative provided conceptual design services for this project.
We are very excited to finally be able to share this project, which is featured on the front page of the Buffalo News! Please check out the article and accompanying gallery. For nearly a year and a half, Realtus Creative has been working closely with Tim Tielman of Place Advantage on this plan for the Outer Harbor, providing conceptual studies, 3-D modeling, and renderings.
The Outer Harbor plan is for the public. It is designed to preserve waterfront access for the community and to facilitate pedestrian access to the Outer Harbor from Canalside.
To learn more about the Outer Harbor project, please attend the public meeting next Wednesday, September 14 at Hutch Tech.

Realtus Creative had work featured in a Buffalo Rising article in March about a counterproposal for Buffalo State College's Alumni Hall and Visitor Center. Local preservationist and urban design consultant Tim Tielman enlisted our services to create conceptual renderings for the building, which can be viewed with the article on Buffalo Rising's website.
Last week we came across a great video that was being shared like wildfire amongst Katherine's social media network of designers and artists. In the brief video, Toronto-based agency Zulu Alpha Kilo tackles the subject of "spec work" with wit and clarity. Spec work is unethical and is an issue that has plagued the creative services industry for many years. Hopefully things like this video will help shed more light on the topic and inspire contractors and clients alike to educate themselves. We highly encourage everyone, regardless of occupational field, to give it a look:
