Keep Portland

Design, Layout, Experimentation, Documentation

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 in which I extracted and compiled into new messages that reflects my personal experience as a new comer to Portland.

Objects from the same section were then collected and sun printed to create an archive of collective ephemera.

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.
