JOON connects purpose to practice and people to place. Through diverse mediums, we weave ideas into compelling stories.

In Farsi, the word joon translates to life, and is often used as a term of endearment. It carries a positive connotation of closeness and affection, bestowed upon one’s beloved.




JOON is the product of a collaboration between FISK and Brown Printing Inc. Through our mutual support of the arts in Portland, we initiated this project to help shed light on the vast and exciting arts scene in the city. Through this partnership, we have also set out to showcase the possibilities and impact of design and print.
