Such a big new moon week for us! The documentary Ace Hotel Portland made about Kerby+I in collaboration with Michael Bunsen and Johnny Le for the thinking cap series is released today!
We are honored to be a part of this cool series. Thank you so much to Tino Valentino and Ace Hotel Portland for hanging out with us “wingnuts” we luv you guys.
I’m sad Kerby isn’t on this side of the world today to celebrate with me!

I’m looking forward to attending this weekend’s Content and BTW, I’ve got secret products in the works with the badass ladies of Portland Garment Factory… we’ll be selling artifacts with the mythological “YOUJOY symbology I designed at last year’s Content ,in the pop-up shop at the Cleaners this year!

Wow, thank you Ace Hotel, Johnny Le, Michael Bunsen, and Valentine Freeman. This was so epic to be a part of, and we are honored to be featured in this cool series!

During last year’s edition of Content and as part of our ongoing Thinking Cap series — a collaborative and curious inquiry into the creative process — we entered the inner lair of Emily Baker and Kerby Ferris. Emily is the designer and curator of Sword + Fern, and makes some of the most beautiful and unique jewelry and other odds and ends around, and together with sound artist Kerby Ferris forms the band Lavender Mirror. We lingered while they crafted Youjoy, an installation project for the event and a living testament to their amazing brains and creative know-how. Our friend Johnny Le crafted this ode to the experience.

See all our Thinking Caps here, and share something about your creative process with us with #athinkingcap and @acehotel. We’ll keep an eye out.

On Saturday, we’ll host our fourth Content event on the second floor of Ace Hotel Portland. We’re clearing out the rooms and filling them each with the best designers and crafters in town — and if you want to bring something home we’ll have a pop-up shop in The Cleaners.

 For full information about the event and its participants, visit our calendar.

Tickets are available for advance purchase here.
