BaDesign Garnering Attention as an Oakland Green Business
San Francisco Business Times
SF BUSINESS TIMES -- Branden Adams (MLA 2002) and Jennifer Ivanovich (MLA 2002), d.b.a. BaDesign, were featured in San Francisco Business Times this past spring for their furniture line, PALLETproducts, built with repurposed shipping pallets. Subsequently they were nominated and awarded the 2012-2013 Oakland Indie Greenie Award. The Greenie is awarded to local, independent businesses "immersed in sustainable practices, creating new items from used materials, using energy efficient methods, composting, and reusing and reducing waste." Not lacking design savvy and impeccable craftsmanship, Adams and Ivanovich were also featured on California Home + Designs' 2011 Hit List for their Aardvark Table and as one of the Bay Area's Hottest Furniture Makers by San Francisco's 7x7 Magazine.
