Let’s Taco Bout it with Jeremy from OMFGCO.
October 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Thursday, Oct. 25 come meet us for a taco bar and “The Branded Environment” presentation with guest speaker Jeremy Pelley, Co-founder and Creative Director at OMFGCO.
This is one talk you don’t want to miss. From Jeremy himself: “I think anyone who loves branding will be pretty enamored by it.”
In 2006, Jeremy became the lead Art Director/Thing Maker for Ace Hotel, first opening the Portland hotel, and then expanding his efforts to open the Ace NYC and Palm Springs locations. Unwittingly, the global success of the Ace Hotel brand helped to set his path.
In 2009, he and his friend Fritz Mesenbrink decided to join forces to create OMFGCO. It was a pipe dream built from two guys with computers and zero dollars, and it’s nothing short of a miracle that they are still at it today.
Jeremy Pelley is a Co-founder and Creative Director at OMFGCO, a Portland-based creative studio that builds brands for visionaries. He grew up skateboarding, listening to punk rock, and making art in Lubbock, Texas. He has no formal background in design—instead, he got his BA in Sociocultural Anthropology with a minor in Photography.
Oh, and he flosses, both literally and metaphorically.
