MARCUS HARVEY - 27 YEARS OLD - @PORTLAND / PORTLANDGEAR

My passion is product. Since I was young I've been consumed with the process and how things are made from conception through production. In starting @portland on instagram, with over 331,000 followers, I've developed a new social media based community around the city I love. Using the @portland Instagram page I’ve designed Portland Gear, an apparel brand to show and share my passion for the city. Utilizing the concept of Pop up shops and my experience in apparel design and branding, shipped pieces of portland to 35 countries and every state in the country. We opened our first flagship retail store in March of 2015 and have seen exponential growth since. Graduating in 2008 from Century high school in Hillsboro, and The University of Oregon with a degree in Digital arts and business in 2012, Portland is where I call home.
