We had the good fortune of connecting with Pastel Swade and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Pastel, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I couldn’t work for anyone to be honest I just need the freedom and creative control.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Great design and a unique point of view. My brand is not even close to the size I envision it being one day. But, those are the 2 things I hang my hat on. My foundation.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Eat: Tassili’s Raw Reality Café, Drink: Soundtable, Visit: High Museum

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
SCR1B3 he invested in my brand early and even learned photography and began to help me with shoots at a certain point. All this his main art form is actually music. I’ve been producing for him since high school. Check out his newest single “Yeah”, produced by me. On all streaming platforms.
