Posted on Jan 25th, 2016 by briar


PSUGD’s own Kate Bingaman-Burt is one of a small group of creative guides on this month-long class, 28 to Make.

From the website—”Sometimes, we lapse into unproductive habits because we don’t know what else to do. That’s why we worked with some of the best creators we know to bring these 28 daily creative project ideas to your inbox so you can get back in the habit of making.”


Check out this brief outline of the month and the teachers:
Week 1: Celebrating everyday objects through drawing with Kate Bingaman-Burt
Week 2: Exploring line, form, and texture with Ryan Putnam
Week 3: Hacking visual language and creative thinking with Lara McCormick
Week 4: Connecting to your context through observation and lettering with Erik Marinovich


Do Good PDX

Awesome faculty update! Check out Precious Bugarin’s new program!

Do Good Design
brings engaging brand design to small Portland nonprofits through a menu of services offered at nominal rates. By donating a portion of our work and through partnerships with talented senior level design students, we are able to equip local nonprofits with lasting brand identities and design services that communicate their missions to their clients, volunteers, donors, and the greater community.

Do Good Design is a program of Precious Bugarin Design. We believe that through direct and meaningful design, nonprofits have the best chance of securing support for the good work they do and senior design students see the benefits of using their talents for social good.
