The Most Modest team comes from a variety of design related backgrounds with one goal, to create functional and beautiful products that enrich peoples’ everyday lives.
MM Founder / Principal Designer
Justin Champaign believes intelligent products should offer a deeper level of engagement and connection with the user, the object and their environment. As an industrial designer with a BFA in Furniture Design from California College of the arts, Justin has been a design leader in organizations such as Pablo Designs, Coalesse and Metro Furniture. In 2012, Justin established Most Modest to design and develop products that better support our lifestyles and the unique intersection between craft and technology. When he’s not in the studio, Justin can be found planning his next wilderness adventure, taking photos or tinkering on vintage cars.
Director of Marketing
Marketing Director, Rachel Hartkopf is focused on all things brand-related for Most Modest. Most recently, she spent 7 years as the co-founder and Creative Director of the contract furniture company HighTower. After discovering a shared design aesthetic and a desire to bridge the gaps in the industry she joined the Most Modest team full-time. In her spare time, Rachel’s a woodworker, bread baker and has an active green thumb. Her passion for design and general love for making things is an asset as she is hands-on in the Most Modest studio.
As a multi-disciplinary maker of things, Andrew has worked within various creative studios between San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest. After studying Industrial Design at The Academy of Art SF, he positioned himself at Most Modest by leveraging both his experience as a Commercial Producer and an Industrial Designer.
