If you could tell your younger self one thing about the PSUGD program that you didn’t know earlier, what would it be? Here’s your chance to help some of the Portland State Underclassmen understand the program and establish a sense of community within the graphic design program!

Ask questions, make friends and have fun!

No Skills Necessary is a virtual drawing and friend-making event! Join us over zoom for 30 minutes of channeling your inner-child and drawing whatever you want. No matter what you draw, it will earn a spot on the fridge!

How do we discover each other’s passions? What inspires our design work? Catch our Instagram Series on Friday, February 26th – featuring four upperclassmen who you’ll get to know a bit better. Find out about their passions, their interests, and how those come into play in their design work. See it for yourself on the @psugd_behonest Instagram this Friday!

Happy Hour is all about having fun, meeting new friends, and sharing! You’ll learn some layout tricks and then have the chance to design your own menu using your new skills! Let your creativity run wild with silly drink names, retro fonts, and vintage photos!
