Creative crossover day: First Portland Lunch 2.0 then dMob dLux tonight at PIE
I’m a big proponent of getting the Portland tech scene—a very creative group in their own right—talking to the more established creative communities here in Portland, like graphic design, apparel, food carts, advertising, craft brewing, and film—just to name a few. It’s always nice to see different creative types getting together.
Well today seems to be a banner day for that. First, Oregon Film hosted a jampacked Portland Lunch 2.0 that brought filmmakers and tech folks together. And now AIGA Portland will be hosting dMob dLux, a gathering of graphic designers and tech types at PIE, tonight.
So if you didn’t get enough socializing at Lunch 2.0—or you missed Lunch 2.0 completely—take some time to swing by to mix and mingle with the AIGA types and other tech folks.
What’s dMob you ask?
This is our monthly gathering for the entire Portland design community. Social interaction and networking is the core of this monthly event. AIGA Portland wants to encourage discussion, business development, and help foster a more dynamic design community here in Portland. Plus, with such a plethora of independent breweries, our choice of venues and beverages is expansive.
Like Lunch 2.0, the dMob gathering is free to attend. What’s more, this time—unlike other dMobs which often take place at a local bar or restaurant—you’ll be getting your drinks free of charge.
Free drinks? Interesting people? Getting more creative crossover going? Sounds like a great time.
