Mohawk Flooring is one of the latest employers to create a place that’s as imaginative as it is functional; that speaks to its history as one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of floor coverings.

6 mobile game apps to install now

Ok, so we’re a little biased in that all of these games bear the imprint of students, faculty or alumni from Savannah College of Art and Design animation or interactive design and game development, one of Princeton Review's top programs for Video Game Design.

Making room in a micro-house

Suffice it to say that counter and storage space will be scant in Savannah College of Art and Design’s SCADpad micro-house, measuring 8 feet wide by 16 feet long. So where will the inhabitants put all their, well, stuff? This is the challenge that industrial design students working on SCADpad received.

The art of sound

Sound. It’s the silent hero of so much of what we consume. But often, because of its brilliant subtlety - owing to the skill of a professional or nature’s omnipotence - we don’t even notice it’s there. Were you conscious of the sounds around you when you just read that sentence? Exactly. But if they stopped, you’d notice. Same goes with those surreal game enhancing noises in Madden NFL 25 or explosions in Call of Duty. The experience wouldn't be the same without them.

Slam dunk for a college application: making art with Tim Rollins and K.O.S.

Hanging amidst the exhibitions of celebrated contemporary artists at SCAD Museum of Art is the work of 14-year-old Winter Jones. I never would have suspected that I would have the chance to put one of my pieces inside of a museum as good as this.

Olympic urbanism: the Games’ legacy to our cities

With the Winter Olympics in full swing, you’ll forgive me if I have more on my mind than figure skating, ski slopes, and curling. After months of studying the impact Olympic Games have on our cities for my graduate thesis, "Olympic Theatrics on the Global Stage: Evaluating the effects of temporary and permanent event structures on historic urban landscapes," it’s nearly impossible to acknowledge the Games at face value.
