Ady Leverette was a designer and a principal at Fat Pencil Studio between 2011 and 2018.
As we bid a fond farewell to our studiomate Sebastian Marticorena, who has left Portland to pursue opportunities in Seattle, we are happy to welcome back our once and future colleague Yelena Prusakova! 2015 was a productive and successful year for Lena. She spent countless hours in the shop at ADX working on design and fabrication projects for Trimet and Kaleidescope Coffee in Point Richmond, CA. You can see these and other projects on her website. Yelena also became more involved with Better Block PDX. She has contributed her considerable talents by redoing the Better Block PDX website, taking photographs, creating graphics and a promotional video, and manufacturing street signs and stencils for demonstration projects. She was instrumental to the success of #BetterNaito last summer, and continues to promote positive urban change as a member of the Better Block PDX board of directors. We are thrilled to have Lena back in the office and look forward to sharing more of her work with you!
