I Have a Therapist, Her Name Is Nature

Posted on July 7, 2017

Studio 3, Inc. has commissioned a new tourist attraction in the shadow of the Space Needle. When we’re not moving mountains for clients, we are painting them. With artist and mountain-man Trace Gough’s mural, we have brought a bit of the PNW beauty to our own backyard. How is that for the highest quality visual solutions? Come by, check it out, and while you’re here let’s talk photography, videography and retouching.

“The mural is my interpretation of a photo taken while climbing in the Cascade Mountain Range. The photo was taken very early in the morning, from a high camp near the Neve Glacier in North Cascades National Park.  I’ve been all over the Cascades, and this is hands-down one of the prettiest places, though laborious to get to. There was a layer of haze hanging in the valleys to the north.  “ – Trace Gough, Artist

Transforming a storage container into a mural in 7 easy steps:

Step 1: Power washing and prepping the storage container, or “the can” as we at Studio 3, Inc. fondly refer to it.

Step 4: Start from the back, painting first the sky, then the mountains.

Step 5: Gradually get darker as you paint your way forward, creating depth of field.

Step 6: Save the details for last, enhancing the “wow” factor with textured ridges and moody clouds.

Meet the Marketers

Posted on May 5, 2017

Studio 3, Inc. has added new members to our close-knit team, and we would like to introduce them to you. Jack Biehn has an impressive resume for his young age. He is already fast at work developing client relationships in the Portland and Seattle markets in his role as Ambassador of Accounts. If you haven’t already met him, stop in, or give us a call. We have a feeling you will like him, it’s hard not to.

“Born and raised in Portland, OR, I am a Portlandian down to my very core. Being raised in a family where advertising and the arts were important, I was fortunate enough to know what I wanted to do from an early age. My other passion besides the arts growing up was sports. Playing football in high school and some in college, I learned the discipline that helped me succeed in whatever venture I decided to go into! Being everything from a Market Research Analyst to an Assistant Manager at Voodoo Doughnuts, I never knew quite where life was going to take me, until one day Account Management chose me.

After being in a creative space, and being part of so many amazing campaigns, there is no looking back. You can find me on my days off traveling to the coast, in the tattoo parlor, getting my ink touched up, or on adventures to parts unknown!”

“I slay in the kitchen and in the studio. My artistic eye and word witticism keep my marketing material funky fresh. Stereotypes of the solitude writer aside, I love people and am quick to pick up a quirky conversation with just about anyone. Moving to the PNW after an epic six-month cross-country trip, Portland glistened as the best city to be a creative, foodie, and adventure seeker.

After receiving my degree in Arts Management, I served my time in the service industry and traveled as much as I could—gaining insight into the global art sector and collecting ideas. Having finally found my idiosyncratic home, it’s time to flex my marketing muscles.”
