Be Honest Warm Up: Speed Dating
Hosted by Quinn Carroll
Join The Zoom Here
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! Join us for some small group “speed dating” sessions to kick-off Be Honest. Each “date” will be 7 minutes in total before you will be moved to a different pairing. Ask questions, make friends and have fun!
12:00 – 12:30
Firsts: A First-Year Design Student Forum
Hosted by Sean Schumacher
Watch on PSUGD’s YouTube Channel
For the first time ever, PSUGD has a freshman class! Join some of our talented DES 125 Show & Tell students (and their teacher Sean Schumacher) as the tables turn and they share their thoughts on what brought them to design, what it’s like to be starting school in a pandemic, and more.
12:30 – 1:00
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!
Build Your Brand is a video workshop where students will learn foundational branding skills. Students will go through a series of workshops to get a start exploring self-branding and branding their designs. Come join in on the fun and learn some branding skills that will help you launch into your creative future!
1:00 – 1:30
Mansion-Attic-Shack-House…Remember MASH? Well, we’re going to change it to Design Mash for Be Honest! You’ll randomly generate a Format (Ex: Record), Theme (Ex: Cowboys), and typeface. From there you’ll actually put those things together to create a Mash Design! Have some fun and make something so silly that your friends will love!
Hosted by Abigail Wallhauser

Do you have top notch skills in typography? If you do, let’s put you to the test! Join us for a fun and special COMMA Type Trivia game… and you might even win a prize!

Apollo XXMMI is an event about exploration, discovery, and connection. In our present moment, it can be incredibly difficult to get to know our fellow classmates through zoom meetings. 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!
3:30 – 4:00
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!
So grab a beverage and get ready to design! Cheers!
