Event Planning, Identity, Website

WhereCampPDX is Portland's yearly unconference at the intersection of geography, technology, design, and culture. Audrey Eschright and I co-founded the event in 2008, drawing inspiration from earlier WhereCamps held in the bay area.

I designed WhereCampPDX's northwest compass logo and other conference materials in 2008 and have updated the WhereCampPDX website using a new map of Portland each year.
