Spencer Antle, the founder of Island Company, and I first met at a Starbucks on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. Spencer had a handful of sample bikini’s, a love for the islands, and a great story. It was love at first sight. I helped Spencer develop and launch his brand Island Company from the ground up. Everything from the logo to catalogs, the web site, and prints on the suits and board shorts, hang tags, business cards, etc. Over the years Island Company has enjoyed a lot of success. Among the many honors are a feature in the coveted Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition, Seeing Johnny Depp on CBS in one of our “escape.travel.live” shirts, and in 2007 won Best Brand Image at Magic show Las Vegas, the top fashion and design show in the US.
