This week, we rolled out the remaining two chapters of This Place Journal, meaning Chapters 01 through 05 are fully available, allowing viewers to escape their desks and immerse themselves in an interactive documentation of the Pacific Northwest coastline.
Last Friday, we asked you to engage with This Place by sharing your happy place and the images that came in were exceptional. For those that want to participate in Weekend Adventure this upcoming Friday, tagging your photos #thisplace and @instrument will let you join the visual conversation with This Place. We will share some of our favorite images that are tagged.
On November 13, our Labs team launched another labor of love called This Place. While The Build pushed the envelope on emerging web technologies, we set out to make This Place hold its own through storytelling in both the digital and social space. One that can be reshaped to embody any place, any where.

In this final blog post of the series, we'll take you behind the scenes of our "Go to Work" short films for Levi's® Commuter. Read about the whole campaign and our partnership with VSCO in Part 1 and Part 2.
In Part 1 of the series, we introduced the Levi's® Commuter "Go to Work" campaign. Here in Part 2, we'll provide an inside look at our partnership with Visual Supply Co.
Bike commuting has evolved from a niche activity for a dedicated few to an aspirational pursuit of many. More than getting from Point A to Point B, we see bike commuting as an expression of personal style and creative spirit. The partnership between the Levi's® brand and VSCO captures the essence of this commuter culture movement in America's top cycling cities through a series of photo stories, told through the lens of the some of the most creative mobile photographers.
"The Levi's Commuter collection could be the best thing to happen to a pair of jeans since Jacob Davis got with Levi Strauss to rivet denim together."

We partnered with the Levi's® brand to recognize and celebrate a redefinition of "work" and spread the idea of cycling as the "new commute" with a multi-narrative, storytelling approach to social publishing.
For the last 140 years, Levi's® has supported workers of all kinds. To build on this heritage, we set out to connect with and tell the stories of inspiring creative individuals, their work, and how they get there to do it.
The multi-screen web is a tangle of sizes, specs and resolutions. Navigating these variables is a challenge and can be a headache for both designers and developers. A little understanding, though, can go a long way to getting a project smoothly through the entire design and development process.
Every now and then we open up our doors for a live performance from a local Portland band or touring musician for a lunchtime performance we've come to call a Teepee Session.
