Thirty Portland Designers and Illustrators Exhibit New Work About the Trail Blazers...(including many PSU GD Faculty and a few GD students...come support).
Portland designer Clifton Burt is pleased to present Boomshakalaka:A Show Celebrating the Portland Trail Blazers, an exhibition at Land Gallery that showcases new work from some of Portland’s most influencial designers, illustrators, photographers, and makers. The exhibition offers thirty perspectives of the Blazers that range from the reflective to the ridonkulous.
“There are some exciting ideas being produced for this show,” says show-organizer Clifton Burt, “like spirit animals for each of the players, work based on their tattoos, and portraits of both new and old school Blazers. Participants are working in a variety of materials: wood, fabric, sound, video, cardboard, paper, and more. It’s going to be quite a spectacle.”

He is inviting any upper division Graphic Design majors who have taken/or are taking ART341 to drop in and follow along, take notes and see the general awesomeness that is WordPress.

The ever wonderful Frank Chimero has put together a smart and snazzy PDF about creating your own lighting setup for around $40. Click to read the entire PDF. He did this for you. You should thank him the next time you see him in the hallway.
Garlic grows perfectly packaged. So it was especially galling to the graphic design students in Chris North's five-week "Waste Not" seminar at Portland State University when a fellow student found peeled garlic at the grocery store sold in individually wrapped cellophane packets, all in a larger bag. But it helped spur a branding project by three students called Think. "Less". where they envisioned a system whereby customers would be rewarded with points for purchases that generate less waste. Those students will present their sustainable solution at the Shift 5 salon "What does sustainable design mean to you?" on Thursday in Portland sponsored by the local chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design.
