Portland is a small business community. However, within our city limits, there lurk two Dave Ewalds. Both are interactive designers. They have never met. Yet I have worked with both. In this thrilling presentation— Night of Dave Ewalds— I wish to reveal the richness of Portland’s Dave Ewald community. Exploring both men’s work, life, dreams and passions, I will find the bridges that bind Portland’s beloved Dave Ewalds, and the unconquerable chasms which divide them both. Finally, in a historic Ignite Portland moment, I will bring both Dave Ewalds on stage, to finally meet.
