About us

Sumofish artist and creator Brandt Fuse grew up in Hawaii with a love of fishing and anything ocean related.  Studying abroad in Japan and working Summers at iconic Hawaii tshirt brand Cane Haul Road provided inspiration and life direction.  Brandt relocated to the SF Bay Area in 1998 and after working at Osaki Design in Berkeley went out freelance in 2002.  Sumofish was born that Summer at a booth at Nihonmachi Street Fair.  Together with his wife and business partner Joni, they slowly built the brand traveling around the country selling their designs at Japanese festivals from Boston to Chicago to Honolulu (and many places in between!).  Now primarily found online and at select boutique retail stores, and follow us on Instagram- @sumofishdesign
