Who else is getting excited about Portland Design Week?


Amazing things always happen during the Spring, but we’re not just talking about the flowers budding and the birds chirping. We’re also talking about Design Week, where Portland’s creative community gathers together to celebrate and collaborate on new and innovative ideas.  This year’s festival represents a wide variety of disciplines with over 500 events and open-houses across the whole city.  Does that sound overwhelming?  That’s OK, it’s not humanly possible to attend every event, so we’ve highlighted a few that we’re excited about!

Monday, April 8th – “Storytelling & Production: Insight into Oregon’s Media Production Industry” -- Our friends at the OMPA will be hosting this event with local industry leaders as they discuss interactive storytelling and production.  We’ll also get an understanding of how media production has evolved and grown throughout Oregon.

Wednesday, April 10th – “Sound Perspectives: The Art of Music Placement in Film, TV and Trailers” -- Good music supervision is important on so many levels for almost every audio/video project. The feeling it brings from scene to scene can often be overlooked.  Luckily, Marmoset will be hosting a panel of experienced music supervisors as they discuss their process of placing the perfect song and more.  Event link: here

Thursday, April 11th – “Amplifier: A multi-sensory tasting experiment at The Jupiter Next Hotel” -- What happens when a sound designer, a visual artist, and a mixologist collaborate?  Find out at the Jupiter Next Hotel with AIGA Portland.  Attendees will journey through three rooms that all inhabit a different mood and surrounding theme.  Each room will also have it’s own featured cocktail of course!
