It helps to know people. And if you’re a designer, it most definitely helps to know other people in the creative industry. dMob is just the place to meet them.

What’s dMob?

dMob is a free social event launched by AIGA Portland in 2003.

When is dMob?

On the 2nd Wednesday of every other month.

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?”

Heard about #dMobCollabs?

With dMob Collaborations, we invite local designers to create promo graphics for each dMob. Want to get your work out there? Email Monica. And check out #dMobCollabs on Twitter!

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.
