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!

In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”

I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
