Our Story

Pontem Milwaukee was founded by Chief Executive Officer John W. Daniels IV in 2015 Our focus is derived from the translation of our name from Latin to English, building bridges. At Pontem we believe in the power of a handwritten note, because when you receive a handwritten note, you feel special because someone decided to take the time to handpick a notecard, just for you, pull out a special writing instrument, just for you and leave joy, peace, happiness and comfort in their words, just for you. In 2020, John W, Daniels IV decided to expand the Pontem mission of building bridges and creating connections through 4 core pillar projects. Pontem Design carries the original focus of Pontem with, art, photography, cards and web design.
