Creative Director, StyleFactory.com

Joel Edmondson is a designer and entrepreneur based in New York. He received his M.F.A. in Furniture Design at Savannah College of Art and Design and studied Business Administration for his undergraduate degree. His design career was kick-started with an apprenticeship at Pfeifferlab in San Francisco and multiple exhibitions at ICFF in New York.

Growing up in the “Furniture Capitol of the World” in North Carolina, he has gained an appreciation for craft and responsible manufacturing. Having researched Mass Customization for his M.F.A. Thesis, Joel has a unique perspective on the future of design, believing that by applying lean manufacturing processes that leave little impact on the earth, products can meet the unique demands of individual consumers at a competitive price.

He now applies these experiences and skills to his role as Creative Director and Co-founder of StyleFactory.com, an innovative social commerce startup that offers a platform for creative talent to bring their product designs to market.
