After we received our BFA degrees, Jonny moved from Minnesota to Arizona to pursue an MFA. His original thesis involved forming a collaborative collective and he reached out to Richard as a potential long-distance collaborator. As we worked together we realized that we formed a natural symbiotic partnership, each of us sharing similar big picture goals and vision but with a healthy amount of unique skillsets and perspectives. We started the studio as Cast Iron Design long-distance and planted our roots in Boulder as soon as Jonny graduated. Eight years after that we rebranded as our current name and moved to San Francisco.
