"Keep Portland" is an effort to preserve and explore
a 3-block section of Portland through the collection of vernacular typography and littered objects. Using the
same DIY communication forms found in posters and stickers, Keep Portland compiles new messages that reflects Ciera’s personal experience as a new comer
to Portland. These prints not only become a message
made of messages but also a snapshot of a specific
time in Portland that can never be replicated.
The goal of this project was to experiment in form, execution, and communication through interesting layouts and existing typography.
