September dMob Resists | The Zipper

Calling all creatives! We want YOU to rally with us at our September dMob at The Zipper. It’s FREE! Join us at this vibrant indoor/outdoor food court where you can grab food and drinks from surrounding businesses like Paydirt, Basilisk, Chickpeadx, Slice and Wares.

Design as activism

For this #dMobCollabs, we’re having an end of summer hoorah with our fellow non-profit, Visible. Visible is a national network that provides creative work free of charge to organizations fighting for social, environmental and civil rights causes. Together with Visible, we are taking a stance through our shared belief that design has the power to make a difference. We are experiencing some tumultuous times in our world right now. But no matter what happens, we use design to be heard, heal communities, and lend a louder voice to those who are out doing good in the world. Together we can truly harness the power to make a difference as designers.

We’ll be hosting an activists’ button making station and will have various goods up for sale! Proceeds will be donated to Visible. Want to learn more on how you can help? Join us Wednesday, September 13 at The Zipper for dMob Resists!

What is dMob?

dMob is a free social event launched by AIGA Portland in 2003. On the 2nd Wednesday of every other month, often following an AIGA Studio Tour nearby, it's the place to connect with people driving Portland's energetic design community. With #dMobCollabs, we invite local creatives to help us craft a unique experience and fresh visuals for dMob.

Check out this recap video from a recent dMob!

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 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!

Make new creative friends and never forget the dMob mantra: “Can I buy you a drink?”

Where is dMob?

dMob is hosted by a different Portland venue every other 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.


Want to be part of the action and help organize dMob? We are always looking for volunteers, photographers, videographers and copywriters!  Email: for more information.
