Thanks to T2 + Back Alley Films working with the Mid America Regional Council to promote alternative transportation for a cleaner Kansas City. T2 contracted with BicMedia’s composer, Julian Bickford, to design a custom whistle sound for their animated bird, Quinton, in attempt to spark area commuters to start thinking & humming a different tune about how they commute.
Austin will be heading up special events for KC’s Art+Copy Club. This should be a perfect fit for him considering he loves events & considers himself to be pretty special.
