What better way to celebrate 15 years of mega awesome work together than a heated pop-a-shot tournament? It went down on March 14, 2011 at the Spirit of 77. Somewhere between the shots (of liquor and basketballs), we toasted the anniversary, chest-bumped and ass-slapped. Because that’s what athletes do.

A tribute fit for: Only Elliott.

Elliott Hill was a legendary leader in Nike’s Direct to Consumer division. So when he announced he was taking a new position within the company, we planned a grand celebration in Elliott’s honor at the Global Retail Summit in Santa Monica. A 5k run route ended with hundreds of Elliotts. We rolled in food carts, created custom print Elliott-ism t-shirts and dropped in a photo booth for snapshots with cutouts of the man himself.

Nike Design Day goes down at the Bison building.

More than 600 designers from around the world converged at the Bison Building for a day-and-night of camaraderie and creativity. Weeks in advance, carnival style games were conceived and built to entertain the masses. As evening fell, the space was transformed with music, cocktails and a collection of Portland’s finest food carts. In an adjacent space, a video exhibit played content from 50 designers, illustrating diverse styles and perspectives from all corners of the globe.

Government Camp

Mule Deer Cabin pounded with blanket of white.

We’re rooted in the Northwest and we love it. That’s why we took a bit of the Northwest to New York. And why we built Mule Deer Cabin at the base of Mt. Hood. It’s a short drive from Portland and a world away from everyday. It’s the perfect place for creative brainstorms, weekend retreats and, of course, a cocktail or two.



We’re psyched for the winter season. Last year we had record snowfall. Check out these pix from last Thanksgiving.
