A Note From Poolside's Creator

When I started my design and branding studio eight years ago, I was likely in shoes similar to the ones you're standing in today. I wanted more, different, better. A sense of freedom. More adventure. More connection. More inspiration. More good work. More growth. More living.  

I created Poolside to serve and support you, the bravest among us. I believe in connections, possibilities, and always staying open to what's next. I also believe that you can do anything you want to do, no matter where you are in your life.  Truly.
