How we got here

Pineapple Supply Co. started as the simple love and overuse of a pineapple emoji in Slack while working at Unsplash. I used the pineapple emoji to communicate positive reactions and, in turn, I felt more positive too.

As someone that deals with depression and anxiety, finding ways to have a positive outlook are very important. This lead me to a undeniable urge to start photographing pineapples.

I began combining my love of photography with these positive pineapples.

Used to giving the majority of my photos away, I thought to create the first stock photo site to specialize exclusively in pineapple images and hosting the photos with Unsplash.com. I created a profile on Unsplash specifically for the pineapple photos as a hack because collections were not in existence yet.

Featured on Unsplash & Tumblr

Our Unsplash profile was very welcomed by the community and within about a month, 1 of our pineapple photos was featured. The exposure of being featured grew a following on Tumblr like nothing I’d ever experienced before.

Over the following year, I focused almost exclusively on pineapple photography. With the desire to continue photographing pineapples and giving photos away, I needed ways to support the site. The first thought was to sell premium stock pineapple photos through bundles in our shop and things have grown slowly from there.

Our pineapple brand grew on Tumblr, Instagram, and Unsplash. As each day passed, we wanted the positivity surrounding the pineapple to get louder and louder. It came upon us to start looking into more ways to "share a pineapple" or "spread good vibes." 

Fast forward and Pineapple Supply Co. exists to spread what can be possible if you follow that which makes you come alive. It doesn't matter how weird that thing might be. Now we are defining our guiding principles in hopes to make a positive impact through the power of the pineapple.
