Pol·y·math  |  (Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs, "having learned much") One whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas; such a person is known to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems.


Experience designer + craftsman Steve Bretson combines backgrounds in the Polymath Workshop as a 4th generation Scandinavian furniture designer + maker with over a decade of agency experience as brand strategist, creative director + designer of graphics, products, retail environments, interiors and small-scale architecture. 

Along side this knowledge-set, Steve has also added a lifetime's passion racing and wrenching on bicycles to enable an ongoing pet-project in the form of a successful boutique community-focused bicycle shop in Bozeman, Montana. A curious first-hand look across the conference table into the concerns and struggles of boot-strapped startup entrepreneurs and a conceptual approach to the local bike shop co-existing alongside internet discounts through community and customer focused, (sometimes) disruptive strategies.
