Mike's Mash-Up is a compilation of the adventures of Mike West, owner and creative director of 686 Technical Apparel. Whether he's in Xiamen to lock down crucial quality checks, sitting on the SIA Board of Directors to discuss the future of the industry, or out on the town with his friends for a cocktail after hours, Mike keeps it real and takes the time to share his story inside and out of the industry. Follow the link to see what Mike's up to today!

Arcade Design - this firm out of Portland, Oregon, knows how to have fun (as you can see above) and knows how to get it done in graphic design when it comes to identity, packaging, print and more.

Arcade is the partnership of two creative individuals, Miguel Aldana and Tyler Segel. "We love what we do and it shows in our work" is what Miguel and Tyler have to say.

This fun loving duo works with its clients to develop strong relationships and understanding of their clients to deliver exactly what is requested. Beyond creativity, Arcade offers fair rates, can meet any deadlines, and believes no job too big or too small.

They're professional, but not "snores" and that's clearly demonstrated in the image of the two above. Learn more about Arcade's capabilities and see the work.
