Who we are
Fat Pencil Studio is a visual presentation company.
Our staff has the technical expertise necessary to translate complex details into compelling graphics. Our clients see results: successful project outcomes and improved collaboration with stakeholders.
The “Fat Pencil” is a nod to the traditional tool an architect uses to get key ideas on paper quickly, without getting bogged down by complex details. We also use a range of digital modeling, design and presentation tools to create explanatory images and presentations.
Joshua enjoys volunteering at local schools, offers frequent seminars on visual communication, and founded the Portland Sketchup Meetup for 3d modeling hobbyists and professionals. Outside the office, Joshua enjoys getting around via bicycle: commuting with kids, training with friends, exploring the side streets and back roads.
Adrienne lifts the office spirit with her cheery (if sometimes wry) sense of humor. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her daughter, making films, and playing with her band the Waxwings.
Yelena is a board member of the non-profit Better Block PDX, reimagining Portland’s public spaces through on-the-ground urban prototypes. Outside the city limits, she is an active outdoor enthusiast and camping addict.
