For Design Week Portland, our entire building is opening our doors to you. We all moved in about the same time, this past June, and since then, we have all been balancing creating our spaces and getting to work in our respective creative fields.
I toured many of the studios of my neighbors to give you a sneak peek into the workings of what goes on in our building. From bag designers, a screen printer, photographers, to a glass artist, the variety of cool things happening in here is exciting and inspiring. Also, we all love plants. Plants and nice seating. Seems to be a trend…
We hope you will come visit all of us at 522 N Thompson on October 8th from 4-8pm.
See you there…
