What we do

Scout & Nimble’s mission is pretty simple: we seek to make expert design accessible to all.


Who we are

We have an awesome team behind the retail site and the blog, led by Scout & Nimble president and co-founder Jesse Bodine. Jesse’s two passions are design and helping people, and Scout & Nimble is where the two meet.

It all started in 2011. Jesse created a blog full of DIY projects and design inspiration. Within six months, she had a readership of over 300,000 unique visitors a month. With the ever-changing need of consumers, technology, and social media, Jesse realized she had an opportunity within the design industry. She created Scout & Nimble as a way to make great design accessible to consumers while giving designers the tools and support they need to grow their own businesses. Today, the blog showcases top designers, gives tips and tricks to consumers, and serves as a resource for emerging designers.
