Poketo has worked with brands and companies like Nike, MTV, SFMOMA, the de Young Museum, Disney, Target, and Nordstrom and has collaborated with over 200 international artists, creating exclusive products that reflect its philosophy of "Art for Your Everyday."
With this book, Poketo is painting a full-spectrum picture of these creative individuals, so as you're reading this right now, you can hold a little part of their creativity, and humanity, in your hands.--Jaime Derringer of Design Milk
