Throughout 2017, we are working with our interns to highlight 52 Creatives from the NEPA region. We believe creativity is a broad term that cannot be easily confined within the walls of one simple definition. We want to know what being creative means to you and how you bring that creativity to light.​

Cole Hastings is our eleventh #NEPACreative of 2017. Cole brings creativity to the area through merging traditional craft techniques and advanced manufacturing.

When we asked Cole what the creative piece behind his work is he said, “I feel the creativity in my work is it’s hybridized use of historical references in art, craft, and design fabrication techniques. I have effectively broken down the boundaries between those mindsets, and continue to try and free myself from historical constraints.”

Buckminster Fuller once said, “make more with less”,  and Cole explained that he sees that as a challenge Fuller handed out.
