Founded in 1991 by Portland artists as a creative resource, today Plazm is an award-winning design firm led by creative directors Joshua Berger and Niko Courtelis. The annual Plazm magazine publishes challenging and innovative art, design, cultural, and literary works and is distributed worldwide.

Plazm magazine started as a cooperatively published, not-for-profit periodical that sparked a nascent creative community in early 1990s Portland. As the magazine garnered accolades and awards, it spawned a commercial design and branding firm whose clients have included Nike, LucasFilm, and MTV, along with local businesses and nonprofits such as PICA, the Northwest Film Center, and Fort George Brewery.
