Travel Portland - Keep Portland Weird

The Paris-based La Gaite Lyrique is an inherently creative event and the need to create something just as unique to be handed out at this venue was important. I was greatly inspired by Portlandia's "Dream of the 1890s" music video. Mustaches seemed to be a reoccurring theme, not only in the video, but in my everyday experience of Portland. I felt it was a nice tie-in to France as they have also had a rich history with facial hair. The highlight of this peice are 3 unique perforated paper mustaches that are constructed to be placed within the nose without any extra supplies. The aesthetic of the piece pairs the old and new with vintage photography and clipart paired with a modern color palette. Don't forget to put a bird on it.
