Our Story

Visible was founded the day after the 2016 presidential election. 

As creative industry professionals, we knew that the most effective way we could support organizations serving immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ+, and underrepresented communities and causes would be by donating our skills and services directly to them.

The market value of our services is far greater than what most of our members are typically able to donate in monetary form. 


Within the creative industry, there are many obstacles to finding and successfully engaging in pro-bono work.

We wondered, why, in an industry defined by its dedication to communication and problem-solving, do we have so few solutions for effectively providing “design for good”?

In response, we founded Visible.

Since Then

Over 400 Individual Members and 46 StudioPartners have taken the Visible pledge to provide at least one pro-bono project per year as a component of professional practice.

We formed partnerships with AIGA Portland, Scout BooksPrint to ResistDesign Week Portland, and UX Night School to offer more services and events to our members.

Visible was founded upon an ethos of resistance. Now, we’re moving forward with the collaborative energy of alliance, and a mission to increase equitable access to the work of the creative industry.
