So much good work is happening in order to make the @psugd #behonest2018 event come alive! If you are interested in learning more about the design program at Portland State, come out! If you are looking for new talent, come out! If you are a high school kid and are curious about what it would be like to go college for design, come out! If you just like seeing 130 students in one place who love making things and talking about the things they make, come out! Doors open at five at @wiedenkennedy tomorrow! At 8, join us for a conversation between W+K recruiter (and long time friend and adjunct of the program) @jgspdx and W+K Design Head @nicolejacek
One of the many things that I love about our program at Portland State is how it's filled with incredibly hardworking and kind people who also happen to love making and learning with each other.
Come out and soak up the energy. It's inspiring and one of my favorite reasons for teaching.
We have such a good crew of students working on the production side that it makes my head spin (Thank you @maryana_ak, @kyle_charlson, @allup_anya , @ciera_leigh , @eilewing , @sydinduck , @fun.weirdo , @oniongrl, @rianlongdesign, @kailynjane, @themaddcat, @jamilaycarter, @lelandthebird)! And we have so many people at W+K who are helping make it possible for the 5th year in a row to hold it at their amazing venue (thank you @jgspdx, Lenore Prato, and Paige Rogers)! We are also sharing the space with a really fun show that was installed yesterday by the kids at @calderaarts so come and see work from creative kids and creative college kids!
Also, it’s our 9th year of doing this event so I combed through the archives and complied images from every year back to our very first one in 2010 that was held in the space that now holds @ford_food_and_drink (it was empty then). Since then we’ve popped up in The Cleaners, @instrument (when it was in the Bison Building) and for the last four years we have been @wiedenkennedy. So many good faces of students and so much evidence of community support in these photos. Can’t wait for tomorrow! #psugd
