While it?s impossible to know what Seattle?s skyline will look like in the future, the Seattle Architecture Foundation hopes that citizens at least have some input and interest in the developments. To do this, the organization arranges a slew of architecture- and design-related walking tours, lectures, youth workshops, and volunteer opportunities throughout the city. Ideally, the activities help people become more informed and enthusiastic about great design and more willing to become involved when the city finally launches into space.
Founder David Leeds designed the versatile Tango Card to “ensure people use every penny of their gift cards every time,” according to a profile in Forbes magazine. Patrons convert their Tango Card’s cash balance into gift cards to more than a dozen name-brand retailers such as Amazon.com, Target, Home Depot, REI, and Pottery Barn, with no additional purchase fees. An online interface of free mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad, Android phone, and WiFi-enabled abacus enables them to easily track each card’s balance and expiration date. Faced with a looming expiration date, patrons can donate the unused portion of a card to a charity such as Habitat for Humanity, or opt to redeem it for cash, ensuring their dollars aren’t wasted.

Founder Neil Buckland grew up with a Canon FTb in his hands, and as an adult, parlayed his affinity for striking images into a lucrative career in advertising design and branding. But something wasn’t right. As time passed, Buckland was spending more and more time finding excuses to ditch work and take some snapshots. Finally in 2008, he gave into his true calling, ditched the workaday world of office life, and founded REDred Photo School & Studio.
Today, his accessible workshops and classes help students learn some of the trickier intricacies of modern photography—from understanding what exposure is and how to manipulate it to how to rejigger a DSLR’s auto-modes so that it actually takes decent pictures. Other classes cover more technical concepts such as studio lighting, while still others such as The Art of Photography focus on the aesthetic side. Buckland’s studio is available to rent for personal or commercial photo shoots of any kind, and, for additional fees, the staff can augment such shoots with make-up services, lighting assistance, models for hire, and old-fashioned pterodactyl-powered cameras.
