So we have a little time here, and thanks to a VERY busy few (read 14) months, it’s time to shed some light on our recent works.
And what better to show off than the work we’ve put together for rebranding Portland Adult Soapbox Derby.
Our intent was to show the course, the location and perhaps even some hint to the acronym. We wanted it traditionally strong, visually enticing, and ladened with possible easter eggs. (Who knows, maybe it worked)
The folks at PASD put this race together with volunteers, sponsors, and a hell of a lot of Portland’s creative talents. It’s a huge part of the fun-loving community of Portland, and the fact that it’s put on atop dormant volcano can’t hurt either. Over 30 local vendors have shown support of the efforts, and the entire park is rented for the day so that anybody can enjoy the festivities and the experience. It’s a madhouse, with new and old racers competing for maybe the 19th year of racing.
Viewers can enjoy the park, the sights, and some adult beverages. (In aluminum cans please) It’s kind of like a Red Bull event, but we care about the surroundings and the community. So if you join us, put your garbage in trash cans, as opposed to leaving it in the river. Beer will be available thanks to Gilgamesh Brewing, but not free.
This will be MANVIL’s (something, muffle, grumble) year of doing this, and per usual it promises to be a blast.
The Derby Org. label is above, and the patch, which is being made (In STATE by EMC patches in Rogue River, OR) promises to be hot! We think it’ll be rad! Come to Mt. Tabor on August 20 and see for yourself…
