FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE'RE A TEAM.

Allison (or as most call her, Sugi) embarked on the unconventional journey to create + cultivate Polygon Market long before it was established in 2014. After she and her husband, Derek, married in August 2017, they took the leap to become a full time family partnership. With several years of experience and infinite resources in brand marketing + business strategy + visual design, they have brought together a fierce community of talented professionals, providing brands with the power of an agency and supporting businesses of all sizes and from all over. Both Derek + Allison believe in the power of working together and building authentic connections to help everyone thrive in their own way.

MEET OUR COLLECTIVE

WE ALL HAVE OUR #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
