Point Road is a design studio for people. Yep, people. We help our clients solve problems and live into their greatest potential. Building our Point Road community, sharing ideas that catalyze, and creating beautiful and useful objects make us pumped to get out of bed each morning.
We believe that you can bring a designer’s mindset to the way you live and lead in the same way you design a piece of furniture, organize your living room or layout a website. For us, great design happens at the intersection of beauty, function and intention. We work with our community to help individuals and organizations get clear on what they want and design a path forward.
We believe that the more people there are doing things that light them up, the better off this whole, wide, beautiful world will be. Be your best self. Make the best world. It’s that big. And it’s that simple.
Point Road is our design studio, but it’s also a real place. Point Road is a winding street in upstate New York that founder Sharon Lipovsky has been going to every summer of her adult life. Down a long gravel driveway is a camp that’s been in her family for over a hundred years. Her children are the beginning of the sixth-generation to enjoy this place. It is the kind of majestic setting that inspires – high peaks of the Adirondacks soar on one side and the giant expanse of Lake Champlain spreads out along the other. Vermont’s Green Mountains across the water look a hazy shade of purple at dusk.
Time slows in this magical place and the important things always have a way of taking focus. Gone are the worries of email backlogs, performance objectives and information overload. You can focus on the things that matter most. Community, being outdoors, making things with our hands, peace. Your whole person feels rejuvenated by this place and the simple life that it offers. We aim to bring the spirit of Point Road to every engagement that we build and the way that we operate ourselves.
Beyond the physical location, we appreciate the spirit of these words.
We see ourselves as partners with you on a journey. You set the purpose of where we are headed, but we are there to walk with you every step of the way.
Many hands make light work. Big ideas require a team of leaders with a shared vision to get the job done. We are delighted to have a team of amazing Point Road Collaborators to make work on this scale happen. Here are some of the people Point Road is working with on a regular basis.

Our clients are the leaders of mission-driven organizations and they are creative independents. We work with both organizations and individuals because we recognize that big change requires a systematic approach AND that all change starts locally. We appreciate getting to work on both scales and find that – despite their differences – this interplay creates a rich learning environment for all of our clients. (Us too!)
Our clients do a lot of different things – they are launching lifestyle brands, they are producing full-length films and shorts, they are Fortune 50 executives leading global teams, they are health care consultants focused on improving patient care. What they have in common is a commitment to make the world a better place and a desire to grow themselves as leaders, business owners, and creatives. Really, they want to grow as people. We love that about them.
