Above: PSUGD had three pieces accepted into the AIGA: New Ventures Student show which was held during the National AIGA Educator’s conference. Students Julie Lesseg, Olivia Serrill, Charlotte Hill and Angela Saylors showcased their work along with 17 other student projects from a variety of schools in the region. 

This exhibition, juried by a group of local design professionals, showcases design projects by students from higher-education institutions in Oregon and southern Washington. In connection to the conference theme — each project resonates with ideas of ‘ intersections’ and ‘new ventures’. All work on display includes key moments of the design process as well as images of final prototypes.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 11.32.48 PM
As part of the exhibition, AIGA Portland provided two DEXed Scholarship awards presented by Liquid Agency. These two scholarships were won by Julie Lesseg for her project Shout: A Collection of Coming Out Stories. SHOUT is about sharing what can be the most important story a person could tell. It is a project about uniting, inspiring, and supporting those that live their lives partially or completely in the closet, by creating a resource of experiences from the LGBT who have been there.

Above: The History of Engagement by Olivia Serrill

The History of Engagement is an unfolding archive that chronicles the history of the work done by the Education Department of the Portland Art Museum. This timeline is solely drawn from uncatalogued archives housed in the Portland Art Museum’s Crumpacker Family Library. This unfolding archive spanning just under 50 feet long took over 5 months to complete and features over 200 illustrations which highlight events of the museum’s long and rich history, dating back to 1892.

Above: In Addition by Charlotte Hill & Angela Saylors

In Addition was their response to the question they heard frequently between classmates throughout their college education: “how do you do that? Can you show me?”
In seven weeks, they branded, created, and produced an event that gave students the chance to learn about their classmates’ particular skillsets and processes, and add on to their formal, classroom education.

Congrats to all four of them for their incredible work and excellent showing!
