Volume 2 of “Portland’s yearbook” is all about Portland by Portlanders. Stories included in the book reveal: a WWII spy’s local connection, our city’s burger obsession, the early years of a folk legend, a secret baked bean recipe, and the everyday moments that make us smile and say “only in Portland.” Our Portland Story Volume 2 was written and designed with love by 77 authors and 77 designers.
This design was inspired by active volcanoes, alpine meadows, electric green moss, old growth forests, cool crater water, and painted hills. Comes in three color options and two styles. Available January 2017 and on demand through Cotton Bureau.
Brain Food is an exploratory activity deck for kids. It was designed as a tool to help teachers and parents ignite creative thinking. It challenges young minds to be curious, to dig deeply into subjects like visual art, performance, and design right alongside math, science, and social studies.
