We would like to invite you to the 6th annual PSUGD Be Honest student portfolio showcase organized by Friends of Graphic Design and hosted at Wieden + Kennedy! (224 NW 13th AVE)

Doors open at 4:30! Public Welcome!

Be Honest is the Portland State University Graphic Design annual student portfolio showcase. It’s not just for graduating seniors, but for ALL levels of graphic design students that want to participate and share their work.

It’s part portfolio show, part party, part open house, part alumni reunion, part awards, part lectures and ALL FUN. And we want you to join in with us! 

This year, 138 sophomores, juniors and seniors are excited to share their work and engage with Portland’s creative community. Be Honest serves as a valuable opportunity for students to gain experience presenting their work and we would love for your feedback and support.

Portfolios are open to the public and will be on view from 4:30-7:30.
