Born in England, Stewart spent his youth on a BMX, a skateboard, or on a snowboard. He gained his Bachelor’s Degree at Kent Institute of Art and Design. Stewart has spent 20+ years as a multi disciplinary designer. He moved to Portland in 2004 to work as Design Director at Nike. Stewart's passion for design began at an early age—never satisfied with the way things were, he would spend hours re-imagining how they could be. His approach has always been led by the principle that aesthetics and function should be of equal consideration, and that rules are made by dictators and that beauty is subjective.
