I'm honored to be a guest at the next KLUM House & BYOB (Brave Your Own Business) workshop. I'll be joining Sara Wolf of Wolf Ceramics, Rebecca Pearcy of Queen Bee Creations, and Casey Ridge from Altar Boutique. All of these women are Portland creative mavens that will be sharing their journey into being a women entrepreneur in their selective fields.

I'll be talking about running a boutique design studio and juggling my creative endeavors that I feel are necessary to my spirit as a maker and activist for art and community. I hope you can join me!

Branding You, Finding your inner narrative—A workshop

Everyone has a story to tell, some of us just need a little help to tell it. We created a half day workshop for the fine folks over at the Portland branch of Edelam.  Students were guided through a series of exercises that utilized design thinking methods, creative brainstorming, and hands-on making to find and create their own inner narratives.

We love sharing the process of design thinking and taking time out of our design week to mix it up and teach when we can. 

  • The Class Breakdown:
  • Creative Brainstorming Exercises: Finding inspiration in curious ways. (group work)
  • Finding Your Personal Style: Visions, Values, and Personality 
  • What’s Your Mark? 

Print Magazine Design Annual, Winner


We are once again honored to have the work of The Study selected to be featured in a design publication. Print magazine’s Design Annual selected only 5 submissions from Portland to be featured in the Far West category. The work we created for WeMake Celebrates 2014 was chosen. It’s always great to be able to play with and use paper as a way to communicate a story both digitally and in print. Our team designed and built assets for collateral, social media, and a series of stop motion video’s. We loved the results. Thanks Print!
