I am Stephen Oster, a dreamer and creative director, born on the East Coast but have spent the last 25 years trying to pick a coast. Currently living in Seattle, Washington Charlotte, North Carolina. And this is Already. Not Yet a space to start conversations and share ideas.

Over the last two decades, I have worked with brands, large and small, building and stewarding their stories in the marketplace. I've worked with the likes of Boeing, Eddie Bauer, Nike, State Farm, AT&T, Progressive and eHealth at a few notable design firms.

I write about the business of designing for start-ups and designprenuers. I wrote a series on what makes a designer called A Designer is.... But all of it is written for the dreamer, because the world needs more dreamers.

You can find me on the internets on twitter and instagram.
