Open House: Oddfellows
Oddfellows is an award-winning creative studio specializing in design and animation. They opened their Portland office three years ago and have loved connecting with the amazing creative community in the area. Kaitlyn from Oddfellows said, “When we heard about Design Week Portland, we jumped at the chance to open our doors and share our passion for design, tiki drinks, and ping-pong!”
This studio thrives on projects that match purpose with play, partnering with select clients who have big ideas in need of careful handling. They take complex concepts and make them accessible and entertaining—driving millions of clicks, views, and conversations. The team at Oddfellows is excited to meet any and all individuals curious about the design industry and animation. As one team member said, “It’s an exciting time to be a creative with the cross-pollination of so many fields of study.” So whether you’re an artist, a staff member from an agency, a brand representative, or just interested in design and animation, come by and get to know the folks who call this studio home.
Oddfellows is located in the iconic North Portland development, One North—a pretty spectacular piece of commercial architecture on the corner of N. Vancouver and Fremont. This neighborhood morsel is packed with creative types and surrounded by lots of great shops and restaurants. While you’re there, make sure to leave enough time to walk around and discover the neighborhood.
While visions of multi-dimensional space travel, creative mind dwellings, and some form of fireworks might be points of inspiration for the studio, visitors can expect a cozy atmosphere and stimulating, creative conversation. Oddfellows is also offering a delicious mix of tiki drinks and ping-pong matches, and screening curated projections of some of their favorite work to date. Guests can expect to meet their multidisciplinary team and leave with a better understanding of both Oddfellow’s process and where they fit into the Portland design community.
