dMob (or Design Mob) Events

dMob is a free social event launched by AIGA Portland in 2003. Hosted on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, it’s a great way to get out and connect with members of Portland’s energetic design community while exploring the city’s various neighborhoods.

What goes on at dMob?

When you arrive, you’ll get a sticker to wear. Venture forth, find another sticker-wearer and introduce yourself or offer to buy 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 places!

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 Portland’s various neighborhoods, making it more interesting and easily accessible to anyone.
