Posted on Apr 21st, 2012 by Kate Bingaman-Burt


Ryan Bush created a video profile for Tanner Goods as a response to the prompt “interview a stranger and document the process” for his ART470 Contemporary Design Projects class (aka: senior thesis). The video has been zooming around the internet and was most recently featured on the gigantic men’s style blog Hypebeast. GOOD WORK RYAN! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!


PSU Graphic Design X GOOD Magazine = GOOD Ideas for Cities!

Posted on Dec 9th, 2011 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

We are pleased to announce that PSU GD is the host for GOOD Inc.’s GOOD Ideas for Cities event in Portland!

GOOD Ideas for Cities is a GOOD Design initiative that taps creative problem solvers to tackle real urban challenges and present solutions at live events. Similar events have taken place in New York and San Francisco. Because of a partnership with CEOs for Cities and a grant from ArtPlace, the program has recently been able to expand to cities across the country. And Portland is their first stop.

The live event will take place on February 16 at Ziba Design in Portland.

How will it work?
Local creative teams will be paired with civic leaders, and in partnership, work to devise innovative solutions for pressing urban challenges. At the event, they will present their creative solutions for specific challenges relating to the design of cities. Areas of consideration may include transportation, water, urban gardening, neighborhood issues, public participation and more.

Creative teams are encouraged to apply NOW! The application deadline is December 14. By the new year, we will announce the creative teams and they can get to work to prepare for the February event.

Why did GOOD decide to partner with PSU’s Graphic Design program?
The questions and concepts that drive this series of events align with the topics that we will tackle in Design Thinking, a special seminar course that will take place this winter.

The class will integrate with the February event and use the second half of the term to identify and devise solutions for urban challenges. The final project for the class will be a GOOD-style evening of public presentations, this time with student teams and live feedback from a panel of civic leaders and creative design practitioners.

Students, faculty and alumni are encouraged to apply for the GOOD event in February. We’d love to have some representation from the smart, innovative bunch we have here at PSU.
