See Design was born out of founder Donna Gorman's love of vibrant colors in simple patterns. Trained as a photojournalist, Gorman’s designs are often inspired by images captured on her exotic travels. She custom prints her colorful, hand painted patterns in India and has them sewn into basic designed lifestyle products.
Gorman’s history in design is just as colorful as her creations. She learned the business of design over two decades working with Finnish design house Marimekko, and used that knowledge of licensing, design, and production as a springboard to launch her own company, See Design, in 2008. Her goal is to create accessible, every day objects in bold and playful patterns that can be easily mixed and matched to create interesting combinations and distinctive color stories.
