PROCESS: A series of actions taken

We think about process all of the time and the stories told while something develops. No matter what the medium, process is at the core of each masterpiece...or disaster. We embrace intention, precision, expression, alterations, do-overs, commitment, traditions, form, and reflection. We celebrate the art of the process.

Over the next few months we will be highlighting the makers speaking at WeMake Celebrates—A Design Conference on the Process of Making. It's going to be a wonderful event filled with insight, inspiration, and design thinking.  We hope to see you there!

POLARIZE: To divide into two contrasting groups 

This quarter we focus on duality, and how an instance of opposition or contrast between two concepts or ideas inspire creative. Be sure to check out Winter 2015, Issue 3 below.

EVOLVE: To develop gradually

When WeMake was started three years ago, we did so because we just wanted to make.  We wanted to learn from our thriving creative community and share their skills with friends old and new. Gathered in intimate settings, each day of making has always rolled out organically. It's been fun to see the work we do evolve, but still remain the same—process-driven and community first.

For 2015, WeMake continues to transform, starting with a new website and a new way of thinking. Welcome to the online version of the WeMake Magazine. A platform to showcase Portland's creative community in one central place through quarterly installments. Each quarter will focus on a theme with featured articles, exclusive interviews and videos, up-and-coming talent, events and more. We've also switched up our format a bit, but are still having one inspirational gathering a month—either a sketchXchange or workshop. With the new website you'll get to know more of the WeMake Team and discover Portland Makers that we are excited to share with you. We have some amazing guests and field trips planned in the coming year and hope to see you soon!

Always be making,
Yvonne
