Under Armour’s Portland, OR Office Will Make You A Believer

Photograph of Under Armour's headquarters in Portland, OR taken by Jesse Rowell, Jr. exclusively for OSDLIVE.com. Dr. Jesse, who lives in Portland, Oregon, took a few minutes to swing by the soon-to-be Under Armour Portland headquarters to snap a few photos and had this to say:

Back in April it was reported by the Portland Business Journal that Under Armour made a real estate deal for a new office location in Portland, OR. Since I reside in Portland, I jumped at the opportunity to get a few close up photos of the soon to be UA Design and Innovation Offices.

As reported this is a former YMCA building that serviced the SW Portland area and it was also a fitness club at one point in its past. Just this week there was a new report in the PBJ providing potential architecture and design renderings from a local form called Siteworks Design Build.

Stay tuned as I will continue to monitor the transformation of this building and the new home of UA!

Walkgood!  ~Jesse Rowell, Jr.

OSD’s SOLEcial Studies Returns for Summer 2015

OSD-SOLEcial-Studies-redOSD is happy to announce the return of it’s acclaimed footwear industry training program called SOLEcial Studies. Having previously been taught in New York at the Parsons New School of Design, and the University of Oregon as part of the Pensole Footwear Design Academy, the program eventually spun off into it’s own 8 week journey being taught at MTV’s Headquarters in New York City, and online to sneaker lovers in 5 different countries around the world.

After a long hiatus, the program is back with renewed importance and a heightened level of passion and commitment for finding the next generation of footwear industry professionals.

The curriculum is based on a mix of topics from the popular OSD Talk Show, in combination with a lesson plan created from the 6 decades of sneaker experience the Sole Doctors possess.  

 

The 8 week Journey begins on Tuesday, July 21st and will end on September 8th, 2015.

Class is is session once per week (Tuesdays) from 6 to 8 pm EST, but anyone in the world can still take the course and have access to the video lectures, and course materials and other resources at their convenient time.

Tuition cost are as follows:
1 Student $200
1 Student and 1 friend or relative $100 each.
Referrals (if not joining together) $50 off your tuition

Interested sneaker lovers can register here

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/solecial-studies-summer-2015-tickets-17319957459

At the end of the 8 week session, students receive a certificate of completion, continued access to business resources and mentors, and one of the most popular take-aways from the class by previous students.. a letter of recommendation provided to any graduate who applies for a job at a footwear related company (of any kind).

Deadline for Registration is Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

For any additional info please contact Dee Wells and Sean Williams via email at info@osdlive.com

WALK GOOD!
