KEYNOTE / JEAN JULLIEN

Immediately following last November’s terrorist attack in Paris, Jean posted a powerful image on Instagram of a peace symbol made with the Eiffel Tower. The world spread the image as a form of solidarity. Before this quick burst of social media fame, Jean’s character-driven illustrations were already well-known with an instantly recognizable signature style seen on the cover of Juxtapoz, in The Guardian, and in The New York Times.

Originally from Nantes, Jean studied at Central Saint Martins and later at the Royal College of Art. He now resides and works in East London, his practice ranges from illustration to photography, video, costumes, installations, books, posters and clothing to create a coherent yet eclectic body of work.

PANELIST / SHANNON GUIRL
Caravan Pacific

After working in the film and TV industry for over a decade, designer Shannon Guirl felt the call to do something different with her life.  Inspired after collecting several mid-century lamps to decorate her home, she decided that crafting her own version would be a great way to change gears and create something tangible. 

With little training in ceramics or woodworking, she taught herself how to marry the raw elements of clay and wood into classically modern shapes and produced her first lighting design, which she launched with success on Kickstarter in 2011.  Several more designs followed and her company, Caravan Pacific, was founded to create American-made lighting that aspired to modern aesthetics while staying true to the roots of mid-century craft.  

The dedication to sleek modern craftsmanship still influences Caravan Pacific as each lamp is hand-crafted with the help of a small team of skilled artisans in Portland. Shannon continues to explore new boundaries by incorporating new materials and techniques in her work. As Caravan Pacific evolves, Shannon embraces the spirit of the American mid-century era with a fresh modern approach.

PANELIST / DAVE SELDEN
33 Books

I went to art school, detoured through the journalism school and somehow managed to finish college with two degrees in 3 years. I was eager to join the workforce, which I did just a smidge before the dot bomb of the early 2000's. Hard work and a lot of networking landed me my first job in Portland, and I've been making design-y, interactive things at various agencies for a little over 15 years. I can reminisce about falling in love with my wife on a Mac LC2 running telnet, but I definitely don't miss browser testing in Netscape. I favor simple, clean design with a strong emphasis on typography and the little things.

WORKSHOP / KATE BINGAMAN BURT & ZACH SCHOMBURG 

Objects / Belongings: Writing and Drawing About Our STUFF

The Workshop—In this workshop participants will be asked to bring in their own personal objects that are meaningful (or not so meaningful). Workshop leaders, Kate and Zach will encourage participants to think about their everyday objects in new and different ways. What stories can we share of ourselves through our objects? What stories do our objects tell of us?

Participants will explore a variety of illustration techniques and writing/editing methods to produce drawings and short narratives about our relationships with each object, and take away a collaborative publication of the days work. 

Along with thinking and making things about our stuff, we will also learn about small press publications, different illustration methods and writing techniques.


Kate Bingaman-Burt is an illustrator and educator. Her work orbits around the objects in our lives: the things we buy, the things we discard, and the collectivity and social interaction that can arise from cycles of consumption. Via illustrations, daily documentation, publications, events, large-scale participatory projects, client work, and a full-time role as educator, Kate’s work invites a dialogue about contemporary forms of exchange. She is an Associate Professor in Graphic Design at Portland State University and sits on the boards of Design Week Portland, Independent Publishing Resource Center and Octopus Books. Some recent clients include IDEO, Uniqlo, Chipotle and Oprah Magazine.

WORKSHOP / CHRISTINE HERRIN

From Hand to Digital /Storytelling & Book Making sponsored by Adobe


The Workshop—In this collaborative workshop, participants will incorporate original handmade elements using analog brushes, markers, and paint. Additionally they’ll learn a few tricks of the trade by using Adobe tools and apps, as well as the Apple Pen to bring their work into a new digital life. Prompted by a theme, each person will create and contribute one page to a collaborative book. Christine will teach a simple pamphlet stitch to combine the book and everyone will have copy to take home.

Travel and her passion for documenting her experiences have always been a central theme in her work as a designer, especially in the line of products she’s been creating for the past few years.
