Evyn Block, Founder
Evyn grew up in Chicago, immersed in theater, opera, blues clubs, art museums, deep dish pizza, Michael Jordan, Charlie Trotter and the Cubs. After she graduated Smith College, she got her Masters degree at The London School of Economics, and then remained in London for the next decade, starting her career within the media, at CNN, and (as importantly) witnessing the culinary renaissance of London in the 1990s, and spending too much time at music festivals.
Evyn moved to New York City for a job in marketing for Harper’s Bazaar, then moved to W magazine and later GQ. She became the Marketing and Communications Director for Shiseido Cosmetics, while spending most nights at a great new restaurant, talking about food. She decided to start her own PR and Marketing firm to explore her personal love of design, food, travel, beauty, wellness and all things epicurean though her client list. Evyn loves to work with creatives, to strategize and develop the ideas that will really change the way people think about them and their brand, to inspire passion, and to build lasting, successful businesses.
