Working with Mike Duffy and Liz Fischer of Citybase has been a perfect example of finding a fit when working with clients. From the moment the IPMM Team stepped into the Citybase office in downtown Chicago, it was clear we were birds of a feather. Mike & Liz were adamant about making their space edgy and engaging, while also loving the fact that we refresh the art regularly.
We’re thrilled to continue working with Citybase, a company we relate to, and whose innovative work we are proud to be aligned with. Collaboration + art is an incredible equation for changing the world!
After we connected with Citybase, we knew there was a fit from the outset, so we could fairly quickly move into the fun part: picking the art! We pulled up the digital menu of art prints options we offer, and started marking our favorites.
After that, all we had to do was schedule the installation of the art! It’s that simple.
Once the art was selected, our team prepared the work for installation by mobilizing it from our collection archives. The art was cataloged, matted, and framed, and then we installed it in the Citybase office in exact locations marked on their floor plan. We also invited their team out to install art with us at Bateman Elementary School on Chicago’s north side & spread the word about it on social media.
Once the art was installed and making a great impression, IPMM Founder Evan La Ruffa stopped by to talk to Citybase staff about the service & program, and then Citybase employees came out to volunteer with the IPMM Team to install art at a local school! Connecting to the mission directly is the icing on the cake, and truly gives our clients the satisfaction of being able to give back through our unique model.
Most times a vendor solves one problem for a business, but we’re happy to solve two. Citybase needed something for their blank walls and a connection to a cool local cause they believed in.
Sometimes a business can lack the human connection we crave, and being able to fill a need in our communities by using a service he needed anyway, seemed like the perfect solution to Citybase CEO, Mike Duffy (pictured above). His support and alignment with our ethos has meant the world and we can’t wait to find the next perfect fit for our client roster.LEARN MORE
Being hired by caring and innovative companies like Citybase is at the heart of what we do. By mobilizing our growing art print collection as part of a subscription art rental service, we’ve created a revenue generator to support the FREE art programs we provide to deserving yet underfunded local schools.
Citybase has been an essential partner in our recent growth & we can’t thank them enough for sharing the responsibility of envisioning and crafting a better future. Through their work, their team, and their connection to Chicago, Citybase helps create the space for creativity, engagement, and friendship in the schools we work with and the kids and families we support every year.
Join Citybase and IPaintMyMind in mobilizing art for the greater good.
