Art student Jordan VanSise, who served seven months as a Marine in Iraq, beat all other U.S. college student photographers and will compete as one of 10 finalists at a world photography contest in April 2014.

We typically work with a non-profit organization on a real situation. For example, in early 2010, we worked with Marylhurst University to brainstorm the possibilities for the Belluschi Pavilion, an historic, architecturally relevant home which will be rebuilt on the Marylhurst campus in the near future. Teams explored how the facility could be used for teaching and learning, cultural events, staff development and informal gatherings.
