Travel Portland and House Special Share All the Wonderful Things that Make Portland, Portland


By The Portland Egotist / /

Travel Portland always seems to creatively step out on the ledge—hiring creative companies that do a great job of showing PDX in that just so “Quirky” kind of light that we all love to bask in. House Special worked with Travel Portland on this great series of 30 second animated looping sequences highlighting various bits of the Rose City. We love the fact that they included the naked bike ride. That’s extremely Portland. The work was part of a Travel Portland 2018 campaign.
