I’m Parker Gohrick a multi-disciplinary designer based in Bend, Oregon. My work merges my background in graphic design with technology and user-centered design thinking. I try to push boundaries and break traditional rules of design.
My work has been featured in publications such as Runners World, Trail Running Magazine, Trail Runner & Outside Magazine. Printed on apparel and shoes, packaging sold at major retailers worldwide and photography seen by hundreds of thousands. I received my Associates in Graphic Design from Portland Community College in 2013. I hail from the great Pacific North West with a short stint in the Rockies between Utah and Colorado.
Most recently, I was the senior designer at Altra Running, where I was responsible for all print materials as well as much of their lifestyle photography. While at Altra, I created multiple seasons of catalogs, branding, packaging, POP, ads and art directed photo-shoots as well as many other things. Previous, I was lead designer for the organic food company PROBAR where I created packaging, print materials, photography and video. Previous to PROBAR I was a designer at Airtype a digital design agency where I focused on UI and branding for a variety of companies (Ex Novo Brewing, Krankies Coffee, Hopscotch Music, Fidelitorium Records and others).
Now I find myself back in Oregon, spending my days designing and illustrating in Bend, Oregon. When I’m not performing design magic, you can find me struggling to fit into small spaces, partaking in local eats & drinks, binge watching some dramatic TV shows, up on the mountain shredding some deep powder in the winter months and hiking/ camping/mountain biking the trails in the summer months. And of course while accomplishing all of these activities you will find my wonderful wife/sidekick, Kalen, and my two beautiful daughters by my side.
