Sharif Pendleton is a University of the Arts-educated multimedia artist enamored by product design.

He has made a career developing interactive learning and designing handmade housewares and accessories under his Masters of None label. Having had success with his initial small business, Pendleton has relaunched as PLAID, LLC, or Philadelphia Laser And Industrial Design. Inspired by travel, pop culture, and the challenges of using design to solve problems, Pendleton will use PLAID to continue to explore the intersection of traditional object-making and modern manufacturing. Launching PLAID at Cherry Street Pier allows Pendleton to demystify the design process by offering an original line of products and customized design services influenced by the diverse cross-section of visitors to the pier.
