Where Creative Practice Intersects Life

About LIVD

LIVD is an experimental art and design publication produced in the Pacific Northwest. Each volume of LIVD is thematic—the graphics and content are created anew for each edition—focused on one specific concept that underpins a creative practice. The writers and designers all approach the theme from different vantage points, showing the complex ways these concepts affect our work and lives.

Contributors come from across the US, and represent practitioners, educators and students. LIVD exists in print and online. Print editions are created in a limited quantity of 150 and use special printing methods, while the digital versions are accessible through Portland State University’s Online Digital Archive, PDX Scholar.
