We have started a new blog to share PSU Graphic Design's community partnerships.

PSU-GD is committed to community engagement and service learning. (

Portland State students participate in engaged and transformative learning experiences in which they build the knowledge, skills, values and motivation for making a positive difference in both their own lives and their communities.'s first posts are dedicated to PSU-GD teaming up with MESO.

Guided by faculty (Kate Bingaman-Burt, Lis Charman and Chris North) the three sections of ART 321 (winter term) will be collaborating with MESO (Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon).

Graphic Design students will be designing and developing concepts for brand identities, strategies and systems to support and promote five of MESO's micro businesses. According to MESO, 95% of Portland's economy are small businesses making them a backbone of our region.

Come on over and watch our progress at  OPENpdx!
