An Old Holiday Favorite, In a New Light

At this time of year, holiday traditions centered around food often ‘consume’ much of our time and energy.  This year, Gamut One Studios wanted to spotlight the problem of hunger in the Twin Cities.  Cans of green beans, cream of mushroom soup and fried onions were cleverly shaped into a Christmas tree for our annual holiday card, by our own food-savvy photographer, Jeff Schmieg.  With help from the crafty hands of stylist, Laurie Goeman, and G1’s builder-extraordinaire, Myron Wolf, they created a wonderful image that will hopefully warm up the holidays in more ways then one.

While it would be fun to grab our can openers and whip up a super size casserole, this work of art is a small part of Gamut One Studios’ gift to the Groveland Emergency Food Shelf (GEFS). Started in 1975, GEFS is located in the basement of the Plymouth Congregational Church in South Minneapolis. They serve over 1,500 households every month with a mostly volunteer staff.

Gamut One Studios is proud to support their much needed work with a donation on behalf of our clients.  The gratitude expressed by the GEFS volunteers and their clients was incredible and confirms the validity of ‘It is better to give than to receive.’

If you are looking for a way to give back this season, GEFS accepts food donations of all varieties in person and gratefully accepts cash donations through their website at www.grovelandfoodshelf.org.  It’s amazing how they can leverage their food dollars in ways that consumers can not with a normal grocer.

Gamut One Studios will continue to support the Groveland Emergency Food Shelf with a fundraiser and food drive at our 4th Annual Super Bowl party in February.  We look forward to seeing you all there!

Feels like it’s been around forever…

Campbell’s Green Bean Casserole recipe (using their cream of mushroom soup) was developed in 1955.

That’s a lot, but they need more…

Groveland Emergency Food Shelf buys 70-80% of the more then 30,000 pounds of food they distribute every month.

Did you know? Green beans are also called snap beans because of the sound they make when being broken. Green beans can also be called string beans because many varieties used to have a long string that ran along the seam of the bean.

Extending the reach…

The Groveland Food For Youth program was the state’s first food shelf specifically aimed at helping homeless and at-risk youth to age 23 with food and referrals to other organizations.

Happy Holidays from Gamut One Studios!

G1 Studios sponsors 2011 MIMA Summit

Gamut One Studios recently took part in the biggest annual marketing and technology conference in the Midwest. The 2011 MIMA (Minneapolis Interactive Marketing Association) Summit was held on Oct. 11th and 12th at the Minneapolis Hilton.

Gamut One Studios has worked with MIMA for several years. This year celebrated the 10th annual summit, a two-day event that hosts close to 1,000 attendees.

Our promotions table at the summit  gave us a chance to catch up with some clients, meet new faces and showcase the services of our studio. Scott Nelson, our new sales associate, joined Greg Kamin fielding questions from interested attendees
about our studio in Edina and our commercial photography services.

The iPad 2 drawing… when will the winner be announced? We will draw and post the winner by 1 p.m. on Friday 10.14.11.  All who liked us on Facebook were entered into the drawing a second time.


Dewey Koshenina and Myron Wolf photographed attendees, featured speakers, the keynote addresses, and all 40 of the breakout sessions.

The morning keynote address was given by Avinash Kaushik, the co-Founder of Market Motive, Inc. and the Analytics Evangelist for Google.

The afternoon keynote was given by the editor-in-chief for Wired Magazine, Chris Anderson. He authored the New York Times best seller The Long Tail.

A few of the featured session topics covered e-commerce & e-mail, mobile & screens, social media & community engagement, UX (user experience) & design. The Summit wrapped up with an evening of great food, drinks and entertainment sponsored by Gage. We are already looking forward to next year!
