BOOST…for meetings sake is located in one of the richest art districts in Cincinnati. There are several art galleries, theatres and boutique shops right in our backyard. To show our support we display and sell artwork from local artists. Displaying this beautiful art is also a great way to keep our space new and fresh for our clients.
David Steinbrunner has been making photographs since he was 11 when his grandfather gave him a Kodak Hawkeye camera. He has been shooting professionally since 1980. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture and Art in 1975, he worked as a graphic designer and photographer. A strong affinity for architecture is rooted in his high school years and continued during his tenure in the design business, working with many builder/developer clients. Eventually he left that company to start his own photography business. As a professional photographer he has pursued primarily architectural clients, concentrating much of the business within the built-environment industry. A long-time resident of Cincinnati, he is drawn to the amazing architecture in and around the city which has consistently been an inspiration in his personal work.
Mr. Steinbrunner is also an Adjunct Professor of Design and Photography and has taught in the Design and Photography Departments at the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University and the Art Academy of Cincinnati. He has shown his work at several local galleries and his images are published regularly in numerous trade and consumer magazines. He is married and has a daughter and a son. They reside in the architecturally rich Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati.
Stephen Wuesthoffloves to draw, and was lucky enough to be considered the "class artist" throughout grade school and high school. He took that love of drawing and has made a career out of it, first by getting a degree in Industrial Design at the University of Cincinnati, and then going on to use that degree as a designer/inventor for Kenner Toys for thirteen years. In 1997 he left Kenner/Hasbro to start up his own industrial design consultancy. With successful inventions like "Brainball for Nerf" and ongoing clients like Hasbro and Spinmasters in the toy industry and P&G in the consumer products category, the idea of making a living drawing seems to be coming true.
Mr. Wuesthoff is a frequent visitor to our BOOST facilities, brought in as a hired hand so to speak, when innovation coupled with visualization are a bonus link to images and ideas that pop. His 5 years of teaching design communications at UC's industrial design program have honed his "on the spot" conceptual and sketch skill sets dramatically. The artwork on display is what Stephen would call pushing himself in his spare time. "Just like business's are always hungry for what's next, I like to take my art into what I perceive as a potential next. It is a good mind loosening exercise for me to attempt to try to stay clear of THE BOX and not just look to get out of it with my thinking and drawing."
