Kyle Marmesh

Founder & Creative Director

I am a graphic designer and brand strategist based in Tahoe City with 10 years of experience. My work with clients as large as Gatorade, Kodak, and Oracle as well as smaller local businesses has given me a balanced perspective of what it takes to make a brand succeed while connecting with a specific audience. I launched Pendulum™ in March of 2018 and have been working on building lasting relationships with clients in the Tahoe/Reno area in addition to maintaining existing relationships with clients up and down the West Coast. As a member of the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee Chambers of Commerce as well as Tahoe Regional Young Professionals, and the AIGA, I am committed to engaging in community development and investing in local businesses. I bring a deep understanding of the region and passion for sustainable economic growth of the area to every project. Outside of the office I am a volunteer mentor for SOS Outreach, an organization that gives at-risk youth the opportunity to ski or snowboard, and develop an appreciation and respect for the outdoors. When I’m not working in the studio, I’m usually out playing in the dirt or snow on my mountain bike, skate skis, or snowboard.

Inspiration & Office Admin

Mason is a high energy, athletic and goofy dog that sleeps next to the desk in the office with me. He loves snow, digging holes, and thinks swimming is just okay. If not sleeping he’ll be chasing chipmunks and filling up on salmon snacks. 100% good boy.
