glassfoundry was founded in 2001 by Ella Nemcova and Jessie Glass. The two friends started out in advertising's classic pairing: copywriter and art director. They began developing identities and web sites for small businesses, emerging artists, and entrepreneurs breaking into the hectic scene that is New York City. Fifteen years, eight offices, and two cross-country moves later, the design shop still specializes in creating logos & brand identities for small businesses and creative entrepreneurs.
In 2005, Ella left glassfoundry for a year-long journey around the globe. She has since moved on to found the vegan, organic catering & nutrition counseling company The Regal Vegan.
Jessie continues to wrack her brains at glassfoundry's offices trying to come up with concept-driven, communicative, and handsome solutions to the graphic design problems of small businesses and working artists everywhere.
