MANIFESTO LAUNCHES INTEL'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY CAMPAIGN

The Intel brand has had a tremendous effect on our lives.

So when Intel tasked us with bringing their 50th anniversary to life, we immediately envisioned the wonder, breakthroughs and pure moments of awe that Intel has inspired over the past 50 years.

TABLE FOR TEN - GOSCHIE FARMS

In a season where we slow down to celebrate a bounty of harvests with hayrides and pumpkins, it often takes leaving Portland’s boundaries to immerse yourself in the agricultural industry that creates the vibrant food scene in Portland.
