Located on the top floor of the Art Building in room 330 at Portland State, A+D Projects is an experimental studio made up of a group of upper division graphic design students. We are a unique group with a wide variety of skills and strengths and we have come together to collaborate with each of the programs within the School of Art + Design. We provide our service to the varied programs in many different areas. We concept, design, code, problem solve, critique and produce while gaining real world experience, functioning much as an agency would. Established Fall 2013, we are dedicated to conceptual development, research, and visual execution. We are truly an experiment. Our designers change every term but our goal is always the same — to tell the story of our school in the most effective and engaging way possible.
We are accepting applications for next term’s class. You must have passed the review in order to apply. Email Kate Bingaman-Burt if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Enroll in The Studio Collective. TSC is a framework for thinking and making smart solutions that consider our community, our shared resources and the realities of our consumptive culture.
In this class you will work with creative thinkers from different backgrounds and disciplines, meet local innovators who have taken the lead in creating lasting value and you will learn about sustainable processes and materials.
The Collective is collaborative. This course is open to all majors.
The Art + Design building will be our subject and our client. This building has the potential to be a visual and strategic hub for on-going education, celebration and change in and about sustainable practices. This course proposes to look at how the art and design community connects to waste streams and to propose solutions and opportunities that are value added, waste neutral and totally inspiring.

Designers love to make.
We love to make things better. Better = smarter.
That’s where the Studio Collective comes in.
TSC is a framework for design thinking and making smart solutions that consider our community, our shared re- sources and the realities of our economic culture.
In this studio we design opportunities.
Portfolios are filled with experimentation, fresh thinking and added value.
One project. Many solutions.
The Art + Design building will be our subject and our client. We’ll be looking at how we make—what drives us, what fuels us. And when the making is over we’ll discover new ways to creatively use the remains of the day.
