Our Story

Welcome Industries is a Chicago-based firm focused on making life better through design. We partner with local manufacturers to bring our products to life, and consult with select organizations to lead design and innovation workshops.

Welcome Industries was founded in 2015 by Brandon Williams and Pam Daniels. The two met in grad school, and served as the first-ever designers-in-residence at The Segal Design Institute at Northwestern University, blending their love of design with a passion for teaching and sharing it with others.

Pam now leads day-to-day operations. Welcome Industries is a woman-owned business, and our products are made in the USA.
