Proudly female-founded, we are a growing multidisciplinary team of forward-thinking specialists and creatives who dream of a brighter future.
We founded PROWL out of surmounting frustration about the environmental crises we have found ourselves in, paired with stubborn optimism and drive to reorient what we have created with more responsible practices. Like our name suggests, we are hunters. We believe there is always something new to be discovered or a better approach to be uncovered.
There is no forward movement without collaboration and the sharing of knowledge. We strive to build and inspire a global research and design community as we pursue our mission.
