About Me

In 2008, I was working as an industrial designer / design researcher / brand strategist for an international design agency. After years of giving my ideas to my clients to pursue, I came across one that I wanted to keep for myself: the world needed versatile bags for people, like me, who live their life by bike. Po Campo launched the summer of 2009 and I haven’t looked back since.

I started the Designing Something blog because starting and growing my own brand has been an amazing, transformational journey worth sharing. I hope it is both informational and inspiring enough to encourage others to go out on their own – and succeed at doing it.

In fact helping others bring their product ideas to life is my passion project, and I devote about 20% of my time to precisely this. If you have an idea for a product that you believe just must exist in the world, tap into me wide breadth of experiences and contact me to see how we can potentially work together.

  1. I just bought one of your bags and should to receive it next week. I wondered if you still manufactured in the US, so I googled and came across your blog. I’ve no interest in starting my own business, yet I am fascinated by the process. Thank you for sharing your experience. Very well written!
