Things We Love: Picks from Ohio Game Developer Expo’s Chris Volpe

The Ohio Game Developer Expo this weekend seeks to bridge the gap between being a convention for gamers and those who make the games (whether board or video based). “We want to celebrate the gamer culture,” said Chris Volpe, one of the expo’s founders. “But we want people who are interested in turning this into a career to have networking opportunities, too.” Last year, more than 750 people showed up, and organizers expect even more at this year’s event at COSI. Festivities kick-off Friday at Strongwater, with game previews and live music, before shifting to Studio 35 for a showing of “The King of Arcades.” For more on the expo, head to columbusalive.com.

Sarah wore hers over a gray zip-up hoodie and Sela wore hers with gray leggings and a gray shirt around her waist. Kait wore a black button-up coat with a furry collar over a gray knit sweater, and Jordan went all black with her denim trucker jacket. Black and gray looks good all the time. Throw in a splash of color or don’t; you’ll look sharp either way.

Things We Love: Zach Traxler’s picks

Since opening in 2010 in an apartment basement as a T-shirt printer, Traxler Custom Printing has outgrown three other locations to fit its ever-growing needs. Now the printing company, whose services range from T-shirt printing to embroidery to full promotional marketing production, has moved into a fourth. The new location (3029 Silver Dr.) more than doubles the printing company’s previous space, giving co-owner/founder Zach Traxler confidence he’s found the most permanent location his rising business has ever known.
