Rachel Gant and Andrew Deming founded Yield in late 2012 in San Francisco. The two met at California College of the Arts (CCA) and launched their brand shortly after finishing school. Rachel completed her degree in Industrial Design after previously studying Architecture at Cal Poly and Andrew received an MBA in Design Strategy after undergraduate studies in Graphic Design. Their complementary skills and experiences allowed the two to design every touchpoint of their brand: from designing and building their ecommerce shops to the design, manufacturing, packaging and logistics behind each individual product.
Through Yield, Rachel and Andrew create a range of products including housewares, jewelry and accessories. Their range is unified by a set of values that is evidenced in their use of quality materials, ethical production and an understated elegance that wears well over time. Yield’s products are sold online and in approximately 75 retailers in the U.S. and abroad, from from big box stores like Crate&Barrel to design shops like SFMoMA and Steven Alan.
