Overshare: PDX

Overshare is an event series and podcast where successful creatives have a down and dirty conversation about the challenges of being a creative. From getting paid to getting rejected to creative insecurity, there's lots to talk about.

For this edition, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Scout Books to bring Overshare: PDX hosted at XOXO fest’s new space, The Outpost. We'll talk career milestones and turning points, paying the bills & business logistics, self-doubt, and staying inspired.


KATE BINGAMAN-BURT is an illustrator, educator, and collector.

Her work orbits around the objects in our lives: the things we buy, the things we discard, and the collectivity and social interaction that can arise from cycles of consumption. Via illustrations, daily documentation, publications, events, large-scale participatory projects, client work, and a full-time role as educator, Kate’s work invites a dialogue about contemporary forms of exchange. Her design clients include Chipotle, Hallmark, IDEO, VH1, Girl Scouts of America, Madewell and the Gap as well as locally loved institutions like the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Reading Frenzy and Know Your City. She is on the Board of Directors for Design Week Portland and the Independent Publishing Resource Center.
