We’ll be wrapping up our Winter term with a free, open-to-the-public design panel hosted by students featuring other students—designers from A+D Projects. A+D Projects is the in-house studio for the School of Art+Design at Portland State University. With the faculty and organizations of the School as their clients, they adopt an agency structure for students and the relationships between clients and designers. They work in many different ways, chasing opportunities to work in groups or one-on-one with clients, depending on the scope of the projects submitted. The A+D Projects team comes together regularly to discuss in-studio activities and to talk about the progress and process of current projects. Join us Thursday, March 11th at 12pm Pacific at psu.gd/showandtell. At noon, that link will redirect you to our Zoom room. Stop on by! Online art@pdx.edu art@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public
