Phil Otto is a hands-on designer and big picture strategist.  

His approach to design is rooted in his studies in Cultural Anthropology at Stanford University and Fine Arts at the San Francisco Art Institute. Summer gigs in Seattle as lead singer in a Sub Pop band didn’t hurt either!

Phil’s interest in fashion, spaces and experience design coalesced with a first job at Comme des Garcons. He continued on at the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco and at the Headlands Center for the Arts where he worked on projects for Brian Eno, Oliver Sachs, Ann Hamilton, and David Ireland to name a few.

Phil’s engagement with brands began with Urban Outfitters. For that client he worked as a lead on strategy and design and was instrumental in the growth of the brand from 3 to over 200 retail locations internationally.  He had a key role in the birth of Anthropologie and played a central role in the development of Free People.  

Phil has enjoyed working with disruptive growth stage companies, indie streetwear & surf brands as well as large civic scale and eco-futurist projects.  He has worked on strategy and concepts for REI, Undefeated, Nike and Coca-Cola,  to name a few.

Phil, who likes to call himself a Blue Collar Futurist, lives in Topanga Canyon with his wife Trā, their son Fin and daughter Emily.
