Virb Portland

Local Virb Favorites

Virb has a lot of awesome customers who are based in Portland or who will just be joining us out there. Get to know them!

  • Kate Bingaman-Burt

    Kate is a designer, illustrator, teacher, and pretty much one of our favorite people ever. You can find her behind the scenes on a variety of events at DWP or hear her speak on the Designing Women Panel.
  • Maxine Denver

    Maxine Denver is a globe-trotting couple who combines their photo and video talents to capture conferences, events, and other projects. They've helped to create an incredible video series with DWP based on the prompt, "Design is..." Look for them sneaking around DWP behind their lenses.
  • Heartwork (Invisible Creature)

    Heartwork is a project created by design duo Invisible Creature that helps provide art supplies to kids undergoing lengthy hospital treatments. Designers and artists sell their work and donate the proceeds to the Target House to fund the supplies. You can find them at various events during DWP, including this lecture where they'll discuss Heartwork and other projects they love.
  • Land

    Land is an art gallery space and retail shop in Portland's Mississippi district that was founded by the creators of successful online shop buyolympia. While you might not be able to walk there, be sure to head over for their latest art exhibit that opens October 11.
  • BriarMade

    BriarMade is the shop and portfolio of Briar Levit, a Portland-based designer and teacher. We love her work and are excited to attend the workshop she's running, Self Promotion.
  • Moberi Smoothies

    Moberi is a bike-powered smoothie bar who Kickstarter-ed their way into business in 2010. (Only in Portland, right?) If you like smoothies, come find us after the Jason Blackheart event outside PSU's art building to grab one on us! No pedaling required.
  • Caspian Kabob

    Caspian Kabob is the only food cart in Portland that serves authentic Persian-style food. Their mission is to share their culture through delicious food like authentic lamb and steak kabobs. You're likely to find us in their SW Alder location chowing down on Kofte Kabobs multiple times throughout the week.
