When we last posted here on the blog a couple months ago, we were well on our way to shifting our business focus towards a creative design and consultation emphasis that centers on creative interpretive projects and place based illustration.
This shift is still happening, and we have been grateful for the tools of modern communication that still allow meetings even as we practice social distance.
But we’ve also put a pause on some of the plans for transition to shift our focus on ways that we can serve families in new ways as we all adjust the the new temporary form of normal.
In this post, we share the changes and new services we have been developing in response to the COVID19 pandemic as we navigate closures, adapt to new regulations, and support families through this changing period.
April marks the fourth year since we created our very first hand illustrated trail packet for families in the Portland. When we began, we had a simple vision.
We were scholars and educators who were unsatisfied with the kinds of trail-related material that we were finding for our little one. So we set forth with a challenge: make incredible interpretive material that would connect with and engage with him and other kids.
We drew from our experiences as creatives and educators, our knowledge of pedagogy, and our parenting backgrounds to develop our high impact illustration and place based, hands-on material that you find in the material we make for the Portland Explorers Club.
Since we began this business, we have seen a broad need for this kind of impactful interpretive material. Within in the past year, we have been responding to this need by shifting our focus more towards custom illustration and partnerships with with other purpose driven businesses and organizations.
Through this process, we have recognized there is a more formal pivot in our business that we need to make. And we are really excited to share it with you to share it with you in this post!
