OSU GD program hosted an event during Design Week Portland in 2019. The overarching theme was promotional and informational -- we wanted the PDX design community (and others) to know who we, where we are, what we do and why.
The ‘most significant’ aspect of the event was the senior portfolio show. We wanted to shake this idea up. We felt that the format and date we had in the past was not working: at the end of Spring term in a space that is set up like a showcase/exhibition where guest walk around from student to student, table to table.
We aimed to host an event that centered around ‘the senior show’, but was more. We wanted to increase our bandwidth of visitors. We wanted to provide information (messaging) about the program itself and the students and faculty who are part of it.
