Thanks to many hands in the agency, W+K Portland turned into an interactive winter wonderland for the holidays. Interactive toy soliders, on demand snow fall, and the smell of pinecones and trees. The wonderland continued into the atrium, with huge ‘W’ and ‘K’s made of string, a small forest, and an oversized fireplace. So many hours went into the design and execution, so we’ve compiled a list of names for a shout-out. Thanks to everyone!

The W+K Goodness team was invited to participate in the Print Make Share Challenge at the PDX Letterpress Fair, this last Saturday, which coincided with the conclusion of Design Week Portland. The challenge was a new addition to the Fair this year, which online pharmacy no prescription is put on every year by Emspace Book Arts Center. Each team carved a large linocut and printed on site- and the proceeds of the auctioned prints went to support the workshop program at Emspace.

Being makers of things we spend a lot of time being influenced by stuff that we like. And we like a lot of stuff. Thus is born, “Stuff WKStudio Likes”.
We just got the book Current State: Snowboarding for our library which contains 23 individual interviews and images of snowboarding´s past three decades. It’s a whopping 450 pages thick and made up from two interconnected books. It has a fancy slip-cover too.
There are interviews with: Jake Burton, Terje Haakonsen, Richard Woolcott, Shaun Palmer, Travis Rice, JP Walker, Jed Anderson, Mikey Basich, Nicolas Müller, Danny Davis, Jesse Burtner, Marc Frank Montoya, Drew Stevenson, Jeremy Jones, Ken Block, Whitey McConnaughy, Peter Line, Pat Bridges, Blue Montgomery, Scotty Wittlake, and Wolle Nyvelt.
What’s cool is that it’s written, edited and designed by a pro snowboarder David Benedek. He’s a self-taught designer who pretty much put the entire book together from start to finish. After previewing the finished book (debossing, spot colors, weird folding and other bells and whistles) you got to love a guy who does all his own electronic production work.
He also put together a little video showing the process of putting together Current State: Snowboarding.
The book is sold here. We found out that it is only being released in buy viagra canada a very limited edition and is not available to dealers or wholesale so step up and buy the book. If you’re a fan of graphic design and snowboarding this is for you.
Otherwise check out some of our stuff and maybe it’ll inspire you. You got to pass that Goodness around.
