Custom framing startup Framebridge has announced that interior designer Nate Berkus will be an investor and creative advisor of the brand going forward. The Chicago-based designer will help develop product designs, as well as “guide company strategy around innovation, designs and partnerships.”
“When you find a company that is doing something really well, and has smart people running it, that’s interesting to me,” Berkus said. “It was an opportunity to be part of a brand that is transforming the category. Framebridge is such an innovative company. They saw a gap in the market, and stepped in to offer the very best framing solutions, at a great price point.”
For more than two decades, award-winning Berkus has refined his elevated ethos as a designer. In the new partnership, Berkus will contribute to Framebridge’s content-driven initiatives and new product designs.
Since its establishment in 2014, Frambridge has transformed the traditional custom framing process into a simplified, digital experience. The company has introduced a new generation of customers to custom tradition, having built thousands of frames to date.
“Nate has genuinely found a way to make high style and impeccable design accessible to everyone, which of course, is the motivation behind Framebridge,” said Susan Tynan, founder and CEO of Framebridge. “He will help Framebridge reach more people through incredible product offerings and a powerful message about framing the meaningful items that tell your story. I am so proud to have him on board for our next phase of growth.”
