Earth! And Science! And Art! Hooray!
Brainstorm was unintentionally founded by Briana Feola and Jason Snyder in 2007. They were just looking for something to do with their graphic design and printmaking degrees while navigating a pretty rough job market. They spent seven years moving around, getting creative in grimy basements and crumbling lofts, working tedious jobs to pay the bills, and doing just about anything necessary to make a real go of it. Then one day—oops!—they suddenly realized they'd built a pretty awesome business.
