đź‘‹ 🤓Design history nerds! I have received a giant stack of original documents, letters between several prominent graphic designers of the era, and I need some help transcribing important portions. If you would like to volunteer to help in this effort, I’m organizing a work group to meet up this Saturday at 1pm at the North Portland Library. I can show you some of the amazing items I have found so far like the above: photo of Doug Lynch, WPA artist, teacher and designer of the Portland flag, and this old Blitz-Weinhard beer packaging designed by Jack Myers and the team of all-star freelancers at Studio 1030. Shoot me an email to let me know you can join! [email protected] đź’•

Now nearly 90 years old, Portlander Ellen McFadden—a longtime freelance graphic designer and art/design instructor—shifted to painting just 7 years ago. It was an honor to hear her tell her story at Argyle Winery with Kristin Rogers Brown and Ampersand Gallery & Fine Books. Catch her bold, colorful work at Argyle or at the Wieden + Kennedy gallery in September. ❤️

Field Notes featuring the Portland flag, which was designed by one of Portland's greatest designers, Doug Lynch. I hope they gave him credit! Doug is the subject of my next "Portland Design in the 60s" article coming soon.
