Origins

In 2010, fresh-faced midwestern-transplant Peter Dering took a 4-month trip around the world. On his trip, Peter learned that carrying a nice big camera around is actually a real pain in the ass. He returned to his San Francisco apartment and did what any responsible person would: quit his job and spent 10 months meticulously designing a little device that would make carrying and using a camera an absolute joy.

Instead of looking for big outside investors, Pete put his new invention (dubbed Capture) on a fledgling website called Kickstarter and asked adventurous photographers like himself to take a chance on the little product. It was an enormous success, and Peak Design has been riding that wave of enthusiasm for smart design and delightful carry solutions ever since.

Design

We design products to solve problems, create delight, look good, resist fads, appeal globally, age gracefully, consider every material and detail, and have minimal disruptive impact on people and planet in both their creation and shipping. To reach those ends, we iterate tirelessly. And people seem to like it.

Honest, thoughtful, delightful, radical. These themes describe our products and ultimately everything we make or do: our brand, office culture, Flagship Store, environmental rants, and especially our rec-league soccer performances.

Crowdfunding

Through crowdfunding our customers are able to participate more intimately in our design process, all while we are kept free of risk-averse outside investment. Crowdfunding is baked into the Peak Design DNA, encouraging us to take risks, prioritize innovation, speak honestly, and shun tradition. We launch our products on Kickstarter, and it makes for better products.
