Design Week Portland Collaboration

ACME is an official collaborator for the upcoming Design Week Portland festival, April 15 – April 22! DWP is a week-long, city-wide series of programs exploring the process, craft, and practice of design across all disciplines. The festival is in its 5th year and involvement has become a must for individuals and businesses in the design industry. ACME collaborated with DWP’s design team and contributed our time and talent by fabricating 3D interactive elements for DWP’s Headquarters at Pioneer Courthouse Square—their core information hub during the festival. This year’s design installation, a series of brightly colored conversation plinths, is intended to engage attendees and capture their hopes and dreams for Portland’s neighborhoods and our city. We are excited to see our work activate the square for the duration of the festival next week. We look forward to learning, networking and getting inspired with our fellow design enthusiasts throughout the week.
