Portland State Athletics

Somebody put me in charge of managing the creative direction of a Division-1 athletics program. I've had the privilege of designing absolutely everything that comes through the PSU Athletic Department for the 2017-18 collegiate season (ticket packages, environmental graphics, promotional materials, a freakin basketball court, student section branding, presentation decks, multiple lifetimes worth of social media content, etc).

Viking Pavilion

It's pretty rad to watch a game on a court that started life as a note in your sketchbook. The entire process of branding and opening a sports arena was an amazing thing to be a part of. It's a completely terrifying thing to be creatively responsible for, but still an absolute blast.

Social Media

Since I've taken over the design of PSU's social accounts, the department's seen substantial growth across all of their primary and team accounts. We've nearly doubled our total following in the last year, and were also the only participating team to stay trending on Twitter for the entire PK80 basketball tournament in November (suck it Duke!). I've helped turn social media into a legitimate brand statement, and effective promotional tool for Vikings athletics.

The Experience

The opportunity to be so closely involved with sports and cultivating community engagement on this scale has been a pretty special experience. Go Viks!
