The team at WE ARE PDX describes their founding as the result of necessity, explaining that they “realized that life’s too short to pour our hearts and souls into something unless it makes us truly happy: so we uprooted from our corporate careers and large advertising agencies to pursue a far less predictable creative future”. Also, be sure to check out their client list, which includes The North Face, Adventure Wagon, and Orox Leather Company.
7. Two Penguins
Two Penguins is a Portland-based creative agency with additional offices in both Chicago and New York City. Their extensive service offerings include film and video production, photography, music composition, and…expert jet piloting. (The jet piloting is a joke — we think?)

The team at Lightbox Filmworks has created some seriously cinematic video pieces, and their polished work demonstrates high production value. They have worked for notable brands such as FinishLine, Nike, Camelbak, and Adidas.
