I had the pleasure to work with my friend Zach Yarrington on a birdhouse project for Put a Bird In It. Put A Bird in it is an annual event hosted by WeMake that is part of Design Week Portland. Over fifty local artists, designers and craftspeople create a massive collection of creative bird houses that culminated in a public auction to raise funding for local good.
The design is 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.
