this is a historic advancement campaign.

university of portland

Over the course of our seven-year relationship with University of Portland, we’ve been the gatekeeper of the brand. This time we were hired to guide the creative strategy and design of what would become a record-setting advancement campaign.


Raise $175 million to fund academic, capital, and endowment needs. Memorialize the university’s achievements and communicate how it continues to guide soaring visions.


The fundraising goal was exceeded by almost $7 million, making it one of the largest advancement campaigns ever for a Pacific Northwest private college or university. Our work, showcasing stories of students, faculty, and alumni who have elevated the university to unprecedented heights, also received a Grand Gold Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Awards Program for the design of the identity, case statement, literature, website, newsletter, gala, and advertising.
