Branch is a San Francisco based design and branding agency founded by Josh Morenstein and Nick Cronan in 2013. Born and bred in California, Josh and Nick are the sons of accomplished designers, who instilled in them the importance of design, craftsmanship, and service at an early age. As a part of their design practice, they have a working foundry where they learn skills from a master metal-smith, develop technique, and make everything from desk accessories to bespoke furniture. It is that hands-on practice that then informs the rest of their design work, from L’Oreal’s Skin Profiler to the Red Dot Awarding-winning Nextbit Robin phone.
Recent work includes a new furniture line, Drift, for Council inspired by California’s simplistic beauty that debuted at ICFF this year and a new brand and product line for Plugged, offering luxury audio accessories at an affordable price.
