Who We Are

I am Andy Powell—the nordist; a MN designer, illustrator and art director, devoted skier and all-around winter enthusiast, especially when the temp is below zero... and windy. I am inspired by cold, snowy winters, and I make products that celebrate the season.

I like to ski into the Boundary Waters and race the American Birkebeiner annually (17 times and counting). I bring my passion for design together with winter and ski related themes—this is nordic inspired design. 

I make every effort to manufacture and print products locally—some are made by hand. When this isn't possible, the most sustainable process and materials are sought out. Many are made in small batches and when they are gone, they are gone. New products are in the works, along with plans to collaborate with other designers on their nordist interpretations, so stay tuned for updates.

Winter is good for the soul! Join me in spreading nordist style. HEIA HEIA!
