ABOUT ME!




Hi! I’m Sadie Jordan, a creative based in Portland, Oregon (the stolen lands of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Chinook, Kalapuya, and Molalla tribes). I am originally from Seattle, Washington, where I lived until 2016.

For the past six years, I have worked at CENTURY 21 Real Estate Center as their Graphic Designer and Media Manager. I have also had the pleasure of being the Editor-in-Chief of Pathos Literary Magazine from 2017-2020.

I am passionate about engaging with my community. Over the past three years, I have mentored high school students, PSU Graphic Design underclassmen, and over 100 elementary school students in art and design. (Learn more about the collaborative exhibition ‘Kid City’ here.)(Learn more about the Hank Willis Thomas + ForFreedoms Digital Quilt project here.)

In 2019, I designed and lead the execution of downtown Portland’s first street painting. (Learn more about the celebratory Pride Month pop-up plaza here.) The same year, I designed and implemented a campaign to raise funds for students experiencing hardships at PSU’s College of the Arts. (Learn more about how we raised 5k for students in less than 24 hours.)

I have also worked with PSU’s TIDE to help create branding that promotes conversations on topics of identity, diversity, equity, and inclusion. (Learn more about this task force and see collateral from their first event.)

Recently, I decided to create a digital space for the art and design community to come together during the COVID pandemic. With the help of AIGA + PSUGD, the free virtual workshop-series Good Company was born! (Learn more about how Good Company is connecting design students & professionals.)

---------------------------------------------

My work is reflective of my desire to both design in a way that is inclusive and collaborative, and to create meaningful change in my community. 

I grew up with Rheumatoid Arthritis, an auto-immune disease, which has caused severe joint damage and chronic pain since I was just over a year old. I believe that being a disabled woman has directly impacted my passion for supporting marginalized communities.

Words my mother used to tell me when I felt especially alone in my health struggles as a child are:

“Everyone has something they are going through.”

I use this sentiment to guide both my design practice and personal life. As a designer, I want to create work that is colorful and bold and, more importantly, showcases the diversity of the human experience.

I hope to create a meaningful impact on the lives of those I work with by addressing that unique ‘something’ that you, your client, or your audience is going through.

I am excited to bring your vision to life! Please reach out to me here with inquiries. I am currently available for full-time employment as well as freelance projects and charity work.

---------------------------------------------

It is important to my practice that my work answers two main questions:
>Does this project align with my beliefs?
>Do the client’s beliefs align with my own?

Here are some things I believe in. I’m excited to work alongside people and organizations that also believe in furthering these causes.

I believe women’s rights are human rights.

I believe feminism includes everyone.

I believe sex work is real work.

I believe survivors.

I believe that Black Lives Matter.

I believe in protecting, supporting, and uplifting POC and indigenous peoples.

I believe that no human is illegal. 

I believe in equity and accessibility for people with disabilities.

I believe that love is love.

I believe in protecting, supporting, and uplifting members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

I believe that Trans Lives Matter.

I believe in listening and then listening some more.

I believe in action and accountability.
