Peak Design was founded in 2010 Peter Dering. Having always imagined himself as an inventor, Dering decided to pursue a major in civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. While studying he stashed the dreams of becoming an inventor in the back of his mind for a time.
At age 25 Peter took a 4-month trip around the world exploring parts of Southeast Asia and India with a backpack strapped to his back On his trip, he learned that carrying large camera around is actually a real pain in the ass. When he returned to his San Francisco apartment and did what any responsible person would: quit his job and spent 10 months designing a device that would make carrying and using a camera an absolute joy.
Instead of looking for big outside investors, Pete put his new invention (dubbed Capture) on a fledgling website called Kickstarter and asked adventurous photographers like himself to take a chance on the little product. It was an enormous success, and Peak Design has been riding that wave of enthusiasm for smart design and delightful carry solutions ever since.
