The “Hip Shots” series feature images that were grabbed “on the fly” with little regard for framing and focus. This group of photo-murals were pasted in strips on the sides of huge corn syrup storage tanks in Locust Point. You can view them up close from the Under Armor campus.

Baltimore’s Under Armour Shamed

August 21, 2015

For awhile now the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters has unfurled an attractive—and very bold—banner to respectively protest some of the hiring practices of Under Armour. You can see the banner most work-day mornings at the company’s global headquarters on Key Highway Extended, in Locust Point. While you’re there, you may want to have a chat with the workers, and pick up one of the flyers with more details about the disbute. Or, you can simply click on the copy of the flyer at the end of this post; it’s well-designed, very short, and to the point.
