Seattle may be known for the more well-known global brands that have built their legacies over the years. Yet, the city is a highly compelling mix of entrepreneurs and innovators, impacting the worlds of technology, philanthropy, retail, design, food, sports and culture. Experiencing a significant boom, Seattle continues its rise with a sense of independence and creativity.

To celebrate Adweek’s 26 Seattle Rising Brand Stars, we recently visited the city and hosted a reception to celebrate this assemblage of outstanding talent. To see highlights from the event, enjoy the photos below.
