House Dogge

Happy Friday! Meet Angela Medlin (and Wubbi), the creator behind House Dogge, a Portland studio making quality goods for your favorite pet.

1. Daily ritual?
In the words of Rihanna: “WORKWORKWORKWORKWORK”....But coffee first.

2. Best creative (or business) advice?
Stop waiting for the perfect idea. Just start something…anything…and ‘fail fast’.

3. Current inspiration sources?
Dogs, people and purposeful design that supports both.

Milk Magazine
Apartment Therapy
Humans of New York
The Functional Apparel & Accessories Studio

4. Favorite podcast(s)?
I’m inspired by storytelling and how things work: Invisibila, Hidden Brain, Radiolab, Ted Radio Hour, Story Corp

5. How does your city influence your work? 
As a new creative-preneur in Portland, OR, I’m energized by some of the most prolific designers, makers, and artists in the northwest. These are people who are hustling from dawn to dusk in city coffee shops and workshops to bring their vision to life. I’m inspired daily by the magic of that hustle.
