Report Station

Concerned Dads and Robot Jams

Now with 50 percent more tracks!

Happy Tuesday Report Station fans. These are more tracks that came off the phone’s voicemail, not the Alibi’s. Again, this means these people were called from the phone booth and are calling the number back.

Feature

Operation Art Box

We put out a call to local artists, asking them to show us how they’d redesign an Alibi distribution box. We were subsequently showered with submissions, and we spent weeks poring over drawings, sketches, digital renderings, and mad ramblings in letters and emails. Notions of every sort sloshed across our desks, fresh from the minds of our city’s creative geniuses.

Art boxes deployed!

Scores of submissions came in from Albuquerque's top artists to do makeovers on the Alibi’s distribution boxes. Arts Editor Summer Olsson and Circulation Manager Geoff Plant sifted through the renderings, letters, drawings, blueprints and portfolios to choose the best designs. Plant delivered out-of-commission boxes to the winners. Three weeks later, the beauties came rolling back in, ready to be deployed along Albuquerque's main corridor. The 14 finished boxes are mapped out below.
