Stumptown is not Portland, Oregon's only nickname. It is also known as PDX, Rip City, Rose City, Bridge Town, and Bridge City. The name Stumptown comes from the stumps left by the thousands of trees cut down to make way for the city.

The season 1 poster shows Dex laying on a crushed car as if she fell on it.

This seems to be based on the famous photo of Evelyn McHale's 1947 suicide known as "The most beautiful Suicide"
