If you didn’t already hear all about it, I curated an exhibition of West Coast-based designers called superPAC (PAC for PACific) at this year’s WestEdge Design Fair. Now, I’d never curated a booth like this before – not only did I set myself up for the biggest learning curve of the year, but I now have a new respect for trade show exhibitors! I’m very pleased with how it all turned out from the setup to takedown. Everyone was so helpful and friendly!
The exhibition featured fresh talent from up and down the coast from Vancouver all the way down to Mexico. Here’s a list of everyone who participated:
100xbtr (Los Angeles, CA) \\\ Brendan Ravenhill (Los Angeles, CA) \\\ Mimi Jung (Los Angeles, CA) \\\ Eric Trine (Long Beach, CA) \\\ Iacoli & McAllister (Seattle WA) \\\ graypants (Seattle, WA) \\\ Hinterland Design (Gibsons, British Columbia, Canada) \\\ Jeff Martin Joinery (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) \\\ Ladies & Gentlemen Studio (Seattle, WA) \\\ PECA (Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico) \\\ Phloem Studio (Portland, OR) \\\ Rachel Denny (Beavercreek, OR) \\\ Standard Socket (Seattle, WA) \\\ Tanya Aguiniga (Los Angeles, CA) \\\ Varian Designs (San Francisco, CA) \\\ urbancase (Seattle, WA) \\\ Wolfum (Los Angeles, CA) \\\ Zoe Pawlak (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)
I also want to thank our partner, MOO, who generously helped make the exhibition happen, and who also donated some beautiful flyers and luxe papergoods.
