Put a Bird In It was an event hosted by WeMake that was part of Design Week Portland. Over fifty local artists, designers and craftspeople created collection of bird houses that were auctioned off to raise funding for local school art programs. I had the pleasure to work with my friend Zach Yarrington on this project. The design was inspired by The Mint, a classic hotel and casino from old Las Vegas. I have an obsession with old neon signage and midcentury architecture. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to re-create one of my favorites neons designs.
