The Toi shop is a design wonderland in the North Pole (actually Valencia) where designers work and listen to cool spotify playlists. We are crazy lucky; we always get to work on cool projects. You will have the opportunity to enjoy industry recognition and meet cool [slash] famous, people [slash] clients.
What does it mean to be a Senior Designer in the Toi shop?
In the words of one of our Senior Designers:
To Be cliche, we’re a small nimble shop with A+ talent. We insist on a fun, flexible environment where we learn and grow from each other. We look to produce portfolio work every time and we love to push the boundaries. Our main goal as designers is to constantly grow, never be stale. We build off each other and of course are always trying to impress one and other.

- You should be able to show cool sites that make someone say “that’s cool”

It’s been a busy month at the Toi shop. We’ve had the pleasure of working with so many great clients and projects all over the world!
We are so thrilled to be building the 20 under 20 Thiel Fellowship for The Thiel Foundation which is set to launch in October. Working with the foundation’s team in San Francisco has been phenomenal.
We’re also getting ready to go to print on a rebrand of Athletic Greens. Chris “the Kiwi” Ashenden is a truly inspiring person who’s bursting with energy and ideas. With over 1400% growth over the past year, Athletic Greens is clearly a hot supplement for athletes and health conscious folks. We’re excited to help take the brand to the next level and even more excited about every meeting we have with Chris, Dave and the rest of the team. We had a blast having drinks with them on our last trip to San Francisco along with other good friends and even 4-Hour Body author, Tim Ferriss.
Another big shout out to Taylor Milsal for not only hosting the Toi principles, but also a fantastic dinner in the heart of San Francisco. Taylor and NPJ assembled an all star group for good conversation and a yummy feast. There were many Summit Series attendees (along with the founders parents), Founders Fund and even a few of our clients that evening.
We are constantly thankful for the people we meet on our travels, our clients, friends, Virgin America for making our travels a whole lot easier, and even you.
