Show & Tell: Fran Bittakis founder of JOOP JOOP

Posted on Jan 6th, 2020 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

It’s our FIRST Show & Tell of 2020! Join us at noon in room 320 to kick the term off right with the incredible Fran Bittakis!
FRAN BITTAKIS/ฟราน บิทากิส (pronouns She/Her) is Thai-American, born and raised in Chicago to immigrant parents and has lived in Portland since 2004. In 2019, she established and founded JOOP JOOP.
Fran has been engaged in social justice and activism since the late 90’s (Food Not Bombs, booking punk shows and events, Youth Liberation Conference) and active again since 2016 (NXT LVL + SNACK BLOC). She’s also co-owner of a custom screen printing shop specializing in flatstock for 11 years in Portland, OR called Seizure Palace.
One of her biggest passions is to be involved in connecting her communities to each other while creating a positive impact through collaborating and producing projects with those communities.

JOOP JOOP
 is a radical creative agency specializing in producing events, photoshoots, music videos, film, social media content, workshops, consultation and curation while representing Creatives of Color and allies through bringing equity, inclusion and a social justice framework to challenge conventional paradigms and systems.
JOOP JOOP is committed to hiring and collaborating with womxn, BIPoC, LGBTQIA2S+ folx and accomplices. Our goal is to create work and content that is relevant to us, tell our stories through our lenses and bring them forward and take up space within these industries with a plan to roll out an agency representing multidisciplinary creatives and crew in the near future.

Posted on Nov 17th, 2019 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Evolve is a design agency with a serious passion for collaboration. Together, their team works side by side with innovative companies to create new products and services that make a difference in people’s lives.

Join Evolve for a behind the scenes look at how to unlock teams through Serious Play. Evolve will share how breaking down the traditional client, agency relationship and prioritizing progress over process gets the most out of teams. Spoiler – people are at their best when they are happy, hands-on and contributing to a shared goal.

Noah DiJulio – Design Director
Noah has always been fascinated by how things work, hacking and tinkering in the family garage. His life’s work has been a continual pursuit of better living through technology. Today, he helps organizations bridge the digital divide, envisioning services for the connected age.

Jia Lu Ni – Designer
Jia Lu (prounounced ‘Jay-Loo’) has a Midwest mentality that keeps her grounded but always curious to explore what else is out there. She is a strong believer in new adventures, learning by doing, and experimenting. Which makes it easy for her to dedicate herself to (and often lose herself in) a project.
