PLAZM

By plazm / December 5, 2020

Plazm is a creative studio founded in Portland, Ore., in 1991 with the launch of Plazm magazine. Together with our clients, we solve problems, tell stories, and seek out truth.

In 2019 Plazm was nominated for the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award.

Context
Plazm magazine started as a cooperatively published, not-for-profit periodical that sparked a nascent creative community in early 1990s Portland. As the magazine garnered accolades and awards, it spawned a commercial design and branding firm whose clients have included Nike, LucasFilm, and MTV, along with local businesses and nonprofits such as PICA, the Northwest Film Center, and Fort George Brewery.

Plazm Design co-founder Niko Courtelis moved back to Portland from New York City a few years ago. He and Joshua Berger have relaunched the studio with some of their long-term collaborators in fields such as font design, editorial content, and public policy. Niko and Josh launched The Portland Stamp Company in 2016. Plazm magazine is now published by PICA (Portland Institute for Contemporary Art) a 501c3 nonprofit, under Josh’s leadership as founding Art Director.

Joseph Boquiren

By Joseph Boquiren / December 5, 2019

Portland, Oregon based artist Joseph Boquiren has been drawing for much of his life. When he was a kid, he would read comic books and then create his own. As he continued to draw, he found interest in historic structures and bridges leading to an architectural degree and work with the Historic American Building Survey and the Historic American Engineering Record. These drawings archived at the Library of Congress not only save an essential piece of history but also showcase Joseph's technical skills. These days if he's not on a unicycle, bike, or speedskates, you'll find him doing technical illustrations, 3D modeling, graphic novels, sketching of architecture, travels, dogs, people, and more.
