The Portland Made Collective is a self-sustaining community of manufacturers that advocates and supports its members by providing education, a shared resource hub, and a brand which promotes manufacturers to expand their reach locally and globally. As a non-profit, PMC exists to serve the urban manufacturing community of Portland, a goal that fell directly in line with Band’s ethics and values.
By working together with PMC, we were able to develop a brand system that gave a strong identity to the collective and its public presence. But our work with Portland Made didn’t stop there. After becoming involved with the non-profit, we felt compelled to take on more roles within the company, and currently serve as board members, managing member and public communications.
