Dissecting Design Presented by The Portland Advertising Federation

Design happens. Not.

While great design comes from a place somewhere between our intellect and soul, it doesn’t just happen. Dissecting Design seeks to understand how great design is achieved using processes and design systems that take us from an understanding of client or consumer need to initial designs to iteration to the production of the final product.

We are very pleased to be able to discuss how big ideas get turned into brilliant design with some of Portland’s leading product and graphic designers.
