Work by Peter Steineck

Peter Steineck, ’12 recently spoke to It's Nice That about his work making spaces and tangibility for creatives in Minnesota.

Steineck has worked as a graphic designer and motion designer for clients like the Soundset Festival and Google. Minneapolis animation fans may recognize his work from Hellavision Television, a project that he also runs. His work is often consumed in short bursts but recently he has been moving towards creating physical objects.

From ink drawings to woven blankets, these objects have the same vibrant energy that his graphic design does but allows for more rumination on the object. This kind of staying with the work has influenced the way he goes about his life and building a strong arts community in Minnesota. “All of those people who graduate with a degree in animation have their sights set on LA or NYC. People leave easily,” he says. “I want to give them a reason to stay for a few more years, or come back, or be jealous that they don’t live here.”
