Christine Shen is currently a Portland-based freelance designer. Shen has collaborated with Nike, Apple, FISK Projects, Wieden + Kennedy, and Adidas, to name a few. The styles and visual elements from which Shen draws, including mixed digital and analogue or print components, to motion, show her versatility and adaptability based on each client. Collaged paper and computer-generated graphics, bold typography and color, resonate throughout her designs and allow her to flex work for multiple, distinct brands.

Angie Bac is a graphic designer, art director, image maker and self described internet surfer, also based in Portland. Originally brought up in Ohio and then California, Angie is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts and has had the opportunity to work across various cities to expand her design practice. She began her career in New York City, then made her way to Amsterdam to work on the innovation team for Adidas global brand design and has worked on multiple campaigns from concept and direction to execution. In 2020 she moved back to the States and is currently working with Wieden + Kennedy on different commercial and non-commercial accounts. As Angie has described herself, she is most certainly a “graphic designer hustling and bustling all over.”

Hosted by the BFA Graphic Design program at Pacific Northwest college of Art since 2016, the Design Lecture Series welcomes designers from all over the world to share their work and what moves them. The fall 2020 evolution of our series will take advantage of the potential for more interaction across our distances by hosting panel discussions in place of traditional lectures. As a way to open our doors and minds to the broad and vibrant possibilities in design, panels will be driven by current students in conversation with a diverse set of fascinating creative folks who break expectations of what design can be and do in the world today.
