IN 2014 SOME WILD STUFF HAPPENED.

THE SF GIANTS WON THE WORLD SERIES.
FACEBOOK ACQUIRED OCULUS FOR $2 BILLION.

... AND POLYGON MARKET WAS BORN.

It was a few years later that the founders (us, Allison + Derek here!) - got married #cute... and, officially obsessed with helping businesses grow, took it full time.

Sporting new rings and excitement to serve incredible brands... We’ve never looked back.

Since the betrothal meets business decision... (which shockingly works most days!) We’ve discovered and brought in some of the top creatives and marketers in the business to partner with us. Sure, we could try doing it all alone...But we have seen the power of utilizing others’ zones of genius to create the best overall product.

ALLISON SUGAHARA
FOUNDER + CREATIVE

For over a decade, I’ve obsessively honed my niche in brand design + marketing strategy - in order to help other's promote their passions.

A people person who believes we’re meant to be connected in community, not isolated behind our screens binging Netflix solo 24/7 (only 4 hours a day... ;)

...Connecting, networking, and speaking at events happens in between Illustrator time! I’ve worked with a wide range of brands, from small local businesses to startups as influential as Vintage Electric Bikes + corporate companies like Disney.

My ideal vacation? Replenishing my inspiration supply + exploring my second home: Japan.

A childhood passion? All things creative, from sewing clothes for my Barbies to directing my own movies to being a (pretend) “magazine editor”


DEREK THOMAS


CO OWNER + OPERATIONS

With 7+ years in business, branding, and consulting, I am that oddball creative that LIKES talking logistics and project management. To make sure a creative project goes smoothly, my obsession is making sure details and goals are met - and that every person involved feels heard and cared for. Always creeping on marketing trends (living in social media analytics, Forbes online…), there’s nothing I love more than growing long-lasting relationships with clients...that we can cheers with beer after a project is over!

and a few of their → #LIGHTBULBMOMENTS

I have been creating art work my entire life. Since I was a kid I have been making things from scratch. My fine art background allows me to take in inspiration from things all around us and turn those ideas into something beautiful. Solving problems from an artistic approach is one of my favorite things to do.
— Nik Lagges, Co-Founder of Pine + Pencil
Lightbulb moments happen for me when I’m in mindful motion - hiking, swimming, yoga’ing. My body and mind sync in a way that’s so authentic to me that I can really dig deep into my creativity and spirituality.
— Catherine Chambers, Founder of Silicon + Sea

WE LOVE OUR CREATIVE PARTNERS
