Show & Tell with Adam JK!


Show & Tell is proud to welcome NYC graphic designer and artist Adam J. Kurtz for our first out of town/in person Show & Tell of the year! Join us to welcome Adam this Thursday, October 16th at NOON in room 320. RSVP HERE.

Adam also has a book coming out VERY soon (that is one of the reasons he is in Portland…BOOK TOUR OH YES!)

Here is a little bit about ADAM in his own words:
I’m very interested in the ephemera of daily life, small tokens and messages, creating honest, accessible work through my INTERNET GIFT SHOP, and other small-scale collaborations. You could say my personal work is “really, really, personal.”

I’m currently Studio Designer at Barton F. Graf. I’ve previously worked at Houpla and Ads Next in Baltimore. I earned a degree in Visual Arts/Design from UMBC in 2009.

Want to know more? I know you do. Check out his not so brief bio.

Show & Tell: OMFGCO

We are pleased to announce our FIRST Show & Tell of the year! Please help us welcome OMFGCO this Thursday at noon in room 320.

Who is OMFGCO?
We build brands for visionaries.
What do we mean by that?
In short, we like to think big for people who like to think big.
Regardless of the style of the client, our same approach and principles apply. We make considered, relevant and long-lasting brands for visionaries of all varieties.
Are we Consultants? Designers? Ad Men? Strategists? Critical Thinkers? Brandologists?


We are a creative agency made of all of these things.

It’s easy to make things pretty, but it is hard to make things matter. We love digging deep, finding meaningful insights and then figuring out the best possible way to express them.

Founded in Portland, Oregon in 2009 by Fritz Mesenbrink and Jeremy Pelley.
