more than design

About a year ago, I decided that it was time to take my skincare concoctions to market. A few months prior, my husband had introduced me to Pam Golafshar, a friend from college, and I instantly loved her. Not only was she an incredible designer (check out her company, Oratia Design) but she and I quickly connected over our core beliefs and values, and I knew she would be a perfect fit for the company I was creating. I began to (somewhat timidly) share my business plan and concepts with her and asked her if she would create the designs associated with Zoe Organics.

After hours of phone calls and emails, Pam produced something that I believe truly captures the essence of Zoe Organics:


Over the past year, Pam has become a dear friend. She has been a sounding board, a source of encouragement, and a valuable resource. Although this past year has been very chaotic, we have weathered it well.

Pam currently lives in Hong Kong with her husband, Mike and sweet toddler, Darius. And, although we are separated by miles and miles of land and sea, she will always be the designer (and friend) I call up. I am looking forward to what the future holds for Oratia Design and Zoe Organics and am (somewhat selfishly) hoping it brings her back to the States!

So…thanks Pam.  For being so much more…
