Boston is a city with a unique mixture of historic tradition and modern development. Within this environment lays a vibrant community of architects, designers, and artisans continually creating new and exciting works.
DesignBoston is here to help anyone interested in design find all that Boston has to offer. Since 2006, DesignBoston has been the source for news about the people and projects, events and spaces that are shaping Boston’s design scene.
Gradon Tripp founded DesignBoston in 2006 when he noticed many blogs talking about great design in cities like New York and San Francisco, but no one talking about the smart, innovative work coming out of Boston — yes, a bit of a us-too syndrome, if you will. Prior to starting designboston, Gradon spent over ten years in sales and marketing, customer support, and corporate training of a number of technology and telecommunications companies.
In 2008, Gradon and his friends started an organization called Social Media 4 Social Change. You can learn more about it at SM4SC.com.
Gradon also writes about social media and marketing at GradonTripp.com.
