June is here, and with it our first taste of the Northwest summer. Alongside sunbathing at Sauvie Island and “sick days” at the coast, this month brings celebrations for dads, graduations, and more – and we creatives help to give all the revelry something special. With all that early summer effort to make those parties unique, we should congratulate ourselves… libations are in order!
We’re heading to Mississippi – the one in Portland – and the home of Bar Bar. This welcoming spot, in one of Portland’s most historic and happening neighborhoods, even boasts a secret garden. You’ll feel like you’re in Forest Park – but better, because you’ll be surrounded by creative folks, cocktails, and 2 for $5 sliders! So come join us, and remember the dMob greeting, “Can I buy you a drink?”
The dMob Concept
This is our monthly gathering for the entire Portland design community. Social interaction and networking is at the core of this AIGA Portland event – we encourage discussion, business development, and work to 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.
How much is dMob?
Free and open to the public. That’s right, no charge! First and foremost, you’ll have a great time. Even better, it’s an amazing opportunity to network and meet fellow designers.
When is dMob?
On the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
Where is dMob?
dMob is hosted by a different Portland venue every month (typically a bar, patio, or restaurant). Locations are selected by rotating between the four city quadrants, making it interesting and easily accessible to anyone.
What goes on at dMob?
When you arrive, you’ll get a sticker to wear. Venture forth, find another sticker-wearer and offer them a drink. It’s a great way to break the ice and meet new people. AIGA Portland wants to encourage discussion, business development, and help foster a more dynamic design community in Portland. Here amongst this friendly, laid-back group of design professionals, you’re bound to find inspiration, opportunity, friendship or, at the very least, some really great beer!
