Bend Design equips current and future leaders with the inspiration, tools, and connections to shape our shared future. Our annual gathering in October assembles creative thinkers from a diverse range of practices and professions for talks, shows, workshops, screenings, and problem-solving sessions. And let’s not forget the parties, meetups, and multi-state roadtrips. Now in its fourth year, Bend Design is presented by ScaleHouse, a member-supported nonprofit arts organization.
Jeff and sister Kim Kovel, will be hosting a workshop at this years Bend Design 2018 conference.
The Bend Design Conference is three days of talks, interactive workshops, hands-on exhibits, and collaboration-sparking conversations for everyone who’s curious about how design thinking can transcend job titles and help shape our shared future.

Over the last year we unearthed our mission to elevate the Skylab brand, telling our truest story. We've spent time honing in on what's important and cutting out everything that isn't. Doing so heightened our identity, giving us context to our relentless pursuit of regenerative opportunities, and better showcasing our multi-faceted design approach. As a result, we shortened our name to Skylab because it describes our vision for the future in 2 syllables. The outcome is bold yet simple, contemporary yet timeless. It embodies our pursuit of quality and respect for form.
The launch of this new site is focused on an immersive journey through dramatic moments and engaging tagging features. We hope that the balance of these interesting ideas (abstract and literal, evident and hidden) will leave lasting impressions.
Excited to announce that 2.ink Studio received the 2017 Oregon ASLA Award of Excellence!
The YARD project began with a design team that has been collaborating for many years on a focused exploration of the relationship between building and landscape. The site posed an intriguing possibility of blurring lines between disciplines and eroding ordinary distinctions between building and context, inside and outside.
We had the pleasure of hosting a tour and leading a discussion on conscious city growth and intentional development for Metropolis Magazine’s ThinkTank series. Hosted inside our latest project and creative lab, SINBIN, it exemplifies the importance of spatial and social relationships.
