Design Aglow Diaries: The Journey Begins

Post2_LeavingV3

Why Portland?

Design Aglow was founded in South Florida in 2006 and headquartered here since the start. Most of our team is located in West Palm Beach, with a few more team members sprinkled about the US and many partners around the globe. The main office is where we generate our biggest ideas, but we have always been understaffed and struggling to do more. We haven’t been able to find the type of creative talent we crave.

The past year has begun a growth cycle for us, with two major book publications, our new Frame and Paper Shops, and some more projects that are still top secret.

A few months ago, we began thinking about where we are and where we want to be…since we still have a lot of growing to do!

We need to be in a place with creatives and tech talent, one that inspires us, excites us, and makes us want to connect with our industry even more. We love the West Coast vibe, the innovative mindset, and the unlimited potential you feel just *being* there.

So after months of planning, off we go! Follow team members Lauren and Carry (with the #designaglowdiaries hashtag) as they leave this week by car with a dog and cat in tow. See you soon!

The formula is simple.

clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Where's The Money?

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
