“Cognitive Surplus was started in 2013 by Kristen and Geoff Zephyrus to celebrate the intersection of science and design. We are proudly based in Portland, Oregon.
We are fascinated by and curious about the science in the world around us. We love everything from physics jokes to the exquisite beauty of early scientific etchings and illustrations. We’re inspired by a sense of wonder for our universe and a desire to look closer. We think gazing up at the night sky, watching leaves turn color in the fall, and the way magnets work is intriguing and kinda magical, and we hope that we’re able to share some of our excitement through our designs.
Whether you’re looking for a birthday gift for your lab partner, or a sweet new graphic t-shirt for yourself, we’ve got your smarty-pants covered.”
