How We Fly

Who ever said kites were just for kids? We must’ve missed the memo.

Aerospace materials, an obsession with design, and engineering you’d want in a spacecraft. So you can take flight wherever you go, whatever your age.


A few of the crew

Making the coolest kites on the planet is a fun job and somebody’s gotta do it. Which is why we love what we do. Here are a few of the folks who keep you (and us) in the air.

Mark

Bossman

It’s all Mark’s fault. If there’s a kite in your hands with our logo on it, it’s a product of his unique brand of creative obsession. Of course, he would say it’s all Steve’s fault for giving him that first kite back in college. Either way, Mark makes our best ideas fly.

Justin

Has it built right

If your kite is perfect, that’s Justin’s fault. He lives and breathes production. Accurate, consistent, repeatable, on time. Manufacturing is not for the timid and Justin is unafraid. Which in an odd way kind of explains his neon green convertible Thing, his backcountry motorcycle habit, and his weekly adventures diving with the cold undersea creatures in Puget Sound.

Sandy

Behind the scenes

Sandy knows what’s going on. She knows the metrics and the matrices, the numbers and  the order of all things. She’s the glue that keeps the business from flying into a million bitty pieces and steers us competently through the air. She’s shy and doesn’t like us talking about her much. We love her so.

Nick

Gets it there

Everything that enters the warehouse and everything that leaves does so by the grace of Nick. He has +10 logistical powers and the ability to deliver anything, anywhere. He is mighty. We do not mess with Nick.

Chris

Close air support

That girl is everywhere, and we have no idea where she is right now. But when we need something done- like, Done done- she’s there to help. She can manage a critical path like nobody’s business. And then she’s gone.

Alex

Master kite builder

With hands that should really be insured, Alex has built at least one of every kite Prism has ever made- and a decade’s worth of prototypes that you’ll never see. He can build anything, fix anything. He’s a rockstar. No, really, he’s also a rock star.
