Do Good PDX


Awesome faculty update! Check out Precious Bugarin’s new program!

Do Good Design
brings engaging brand design to small Portland nonprofits through a menu of services offered at nominal rates. By donating a portion of our work and through partnerships with talented senior level design students, we are able to equip local nonprofits with lasting brand identities and design services that communicate their missions to their clients, volunteers, donors, and the greater community.

Do Good Design is a program of Precious Bugarin Design. We believe that through direct and meaningful design, nonprofits have the best chance of securing support for the good work they do and senior design students see the benefits of using their talents for social good.

WeMake Presents: Nikki McClure!


WeMake presents sketchXchange with Nikki McClure, Friday, Feb. 5th
Students and teachers 50% off with code: WeMakeArt

Grab tickets here:…

With X-acto knife in-hand Nikki McClure creates beautiful, intricate works of art. Each bold design is cut from a single piece of paper and often reflects the poetry of motherhood, nature, and activism.

Nikki’s images exude a positivity that revolves around community, sustenance, parenting, and appreciating both the urban and rural landscape, undoubtedly influenced by her home in the Northwest and specifically Olympia. As one of the more prominent visual artists involved with Olympia-based record labels K and Kill Rock Stars, as well as the Riot Grrrl movement in the early nineties, Nikki’s work still embodies the fiercely independent fire that fueled the passion and creativity of that time period.

As a special treat friend and artist Carson Ellis will be joining us a the guest moderator.
