Pinkerton Design was founded in 2004 by graphic designer Penny Richards Eversole. What started as a small line of greeting cards has now evolved into a diverse array of paper goods and a line of tote bags sold in high end boutiques, museum stores, independent bookstores and kids shops all over the U.S., Canada and in other farther-away parts of the world.
Prior to launching Pinkerton Design, Penny studied graphic design at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta and worked for several award winning design studios in Chicago. Today, Pinkerton Design is run out of a small studio in Seattle's Phinney Ridge neighborhood.
IN THE PRESS:Pinkerton Design has been featured in Lucky, InStyle, Blueprint, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Magazine and numerous blogs.
EVERYDAY INSPIRATION:All of Penny's designs reflect her love for color, illustration, pattern, typography, printing and paper. Other sources of inspiration include her grandmother's quilts, her parents' old cookbooks, 1950s roadside signage, Ed Emberley's drawing books and Seattle's strange and beautiful plants.
