2017 Adobe Creative Jam Portland

Please join AIGA Portland and Adobe for the 2017 installment of the Creative Jam, an inspiring two-part design experience that demonstrates and celebrates creativity.

This year student design teams will be competing in the Creative Jam tournament, a 3-hour design charrette showdown. This event will have two categories: motion design and graphic design. Once the Creative Jam presentations wrap, tournament participants will take the stage to share their creations with you. As part of the audience, you’ll vote on each submission and select the People’s Choice winner. There will also be Grand Prize winners decided by a group of local Judges!

While the Jam is happening the Adobe Creative Cloud team will host the Creative Jam presentations. A one-hour design showcase highlighting the work of Craig Winslow, Aaron Draplin & Lisa Congdon.


Doors open. Settle in, and meet your fellow creative community. Free soda and food available.
The tournament will be in full swing—pop your head in and see how it’s developing. Portfolio reviews will be taking place for those who reserved a spot before the event.

Creative Jam Talks begin. Sit back as local creative leaders walk you through their personal creative process.

Creative Jam tournament competitors share their solutions, inspired by a theme announced just 3-hours before. Audience and Judges vote. Awards follow.

Everyone socializes and gets to meet the teams.




Adobe will also have local creative leaders on site prior to the event for the opportunity to showcase your work.

The reviews are a 1-on-1 opportunity to meet for 15 minutes with a creative professional before the main event. Getting feedback is valuable in knowing how to attract new clients and represent your work.
