CELEBRATING the creative 


In the heart of every creative soul lies a desire to see the world not as it is, but as it could be. We founded DesignDash to explore the potential for everyone to envision our world like the creative does: eyes wide open, finding beauty in the mundane, and curiosity in the ordinary.
We believe that creatives enhance the communities in which they live, work, and create. Because of this, we focus on the integration of work and life. It’s not a balancing act. Our identities aren’t split between the office and home. Instead, we embrace our surroundings thoughtfully and simultaneously. We celebrate the meaningful influences that the personal and professional have on each other.
DesignDash founders, Laura Umansky and Melissa Grove, believe creative entrepreneurs dare to design a life well-lived by framing the world as we wish to see it. If you’re a seeker, a dreamer, and a doer, then join us in curating a life you love.
