Founded by award-winning designer Kim Brannock in 2006, SY Design is a creative studio specializing in all aspects of the design & development process.

 
 

Our team has more than 40 years of combined experience in the outdoor and snow sport industries.  But there's more to success than years spent in the industry, our passion is found outside.  Self-proclaimed nature addicts, we're focused on building top-notch, innovative products that we'd use ourselves.

I have had the pleasure of working with Kim and SY Design for many years and currently work with her on Patagonia Fishing products. Quite simply, she is the best designer I have ever worked with. She listens, and is thorough and very professional. Kim develops and hands off the best tech package in the business. She is creative and fun to work with, and has never missed a deadline. Kim is in a word—awesome.

OUR FOUNDER

After nearly a dozen years in the outdoor and snow sports industry working for Columbia Sportswear, I began my own design firm because, above all else, I wanted a challenge.  I wanted to take what I’d learned as a senior designer, and product line manager for a world-renowned company and apply it on a more innovative, grass-roots level.  I wanted freedom to roam, to expand other companies’ horizons while expanding my own. Those horizons aren’t limited to my business. By continuing my education—in the classroom and out in nature—I am constantly gaining a better sense of what works, what doesn’t, and what’s missing when we step outside. My work feeds into my life, and vice-versa. It’s a never-ending cycle, and a good one at that.
